There are no words that can accurately describe the beauty of nature that is part of this park. High cliffs, spectacular views, gorgeous paths, and a spectacular view of Orca whales!

Beautiful scenic getting there , pastoral meadows, one lane road filled with pine trees. The center is interesting and worth stoping by. However, we were not lucky to see the whales. Good reason to come back and have a picnic.

This is THE place to view Orca from shore. We saw a pod of around 20 pass by yesterday and it was breathtaking seeing so many and hearing them. Even without whales the scenery and views of the Olympics and Vancouver Islands spectacular. Highly recommended.

This is a great place to visit if you have a few hours and some whale patience. They interpretive center keeps you up to date on the latest sightings from the park and the view is extraordinary, whales or no. You can also see seals, eagles, and porpoises from shore. Definitely a must!

Loved hiking to Dead Man's Bay. Gorgeous sights. Also the hike past the lighthouse and lime kilns into the woods takes you past an abandoned rock quarry and it is just spectacular. The woods are gorgeous and there is no dangerous wildlife to worry about and plenty of people around. I went with my young daughter and felt completely safe to explore.
