Park Visitor: Comments, Memories and Reviews
December 21 Best Site for Land-Based Whale Watching
This park is one of the best sites in the world for land-based whale watching. Thanks to the State of Washington for providing such an excellent resource. Boat-based whale watching is inherently unsustainable. We should all enjoy orca from land, as can be done uniquely from this park. For more information about the problems with boat-based and advantages of land-based whale watching such as at this premier park, please see http://triskelon.net/terence/orca/
February 25 Best Place in USA to view Orcas by Dennis Eccleston
This is a very small park but it has two nice features. The first is the lighthouse you can visit for free and the second is the great view one can get as a pod of Orcas comes up the channel and regularly gets within a few feet of the rocks. Nowhere else in the USA can you get such a good view. Bald eagles are sometimes seen in the park and they plus red and black form red foxes are common on the island.
