they have a great little museum that has a nice display of the history of whaling and the area. They run movies every 15 minutes and the Sands of Time is worth watching to learn about how the cape was formed. They offer a wide variety of activities for people of all ages. We went to the free camp fire... More

First came here as a child, then with kids of my own, and now as a carefree adult. It works for all!

We picked up a lunch across... More

We stopped here on our way into the park. They have maps. The rangers seemed knowledgeable and can provide information and recommendations about the park. They also have various short documentaries that run often. There is a nice view of the salt pond from the back. There is also a gift shop. They also have a museum but we did... More

We learned so much about the ecosystem and the endangered species in this part of the country. Saw a display about the endangered Plover, and a day later we saw 2 adult Plovers and chicks while we were walking on the beach. What we learned about them made us appreciate their plight. Also saw a brief yet fascinating film on... More

This is a very interesting visitor center, and well worth the time to visit it. They show several very good short films. The bookstore has lots of unusual items, and the museum is well presented. We took the kids there and they really enjoyed it.
