“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Bike here and it's free. We brought lunch and relaxed for several hours. Loads of animals, but we missed the Orcas by 30min.

Loved this light house and park. Beautiful, even though it was raining during our visit. Worth the trip!

“Enjoyed watching whales and having a picnic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Very nice and relaxing place -- we enjoyed our picnic and even saw some baby orca whales. The weather was great, and we stayed a couple of hours.

“A beautiful area to picnic and whale watch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We brought a picnic supper of wine, cheese, crackers, grapes, and dark chocolate and sat at a picnic table and watched for whales. We did see some baby orca whales. It was beautiful and peaceful, and we really had a relaxing couple of hours.

“Orcas Swim in Close”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

The view of the Haro Straight from the portion of the park west of the road is great and orcas swim very close to the base here. I heard one could view orcas from here but I didn't take it seriously. We went out in a small (6 person) whale watching boat and had a great time but the viewing was just a good one day when we were at Lime Kiln! We probably had an unusual day but it was fantastic with about 12-15 whales swimming around. It is a great place for a picnic and to spend a little time waiting to see if any whales show up.
