“Orka”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

Excellent place to spot the orka's! We saw them two days in a row. The whales gave us a show, jumping out of the water!. They come really close to the shore. We did a boattrip too, but when you're as lucky as us, you see them much closer from the shore!

“Great place to visit”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

The history of this light house is worth the visit, but during the time when Orca Whales swim by everyone congregates to see them, and your met with professionals that let you know all about the history and Orca's. Worth seeing.

“Wow... so much information”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

This place is full of great information and well worth the entry fee. This is the place to go to learn about whales, specifically Orca's... It is self guiding with many wonderful tidbits of information. They also have a couple of video's going to watch that are also quite interesting. a nice place to take the family

“Tons of great information on orcas”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

I have been listening to the hydrophone at Lime Kiln State Park for some time -- love hearing the orcas underwater when they are in the area. So it was a treat that I actually got to visit. Easy trails and interesting tide pools occupy your time if the orcas aren't in the area. Also, they have tons of information about the southern resident killer whales and the transients in the area which will provide you more information in an hour than 100 trips to Sea World. This is a very peaceful and beautiful place.
