The Point Arena Lighthouse Wind & Whale Celebration returns on Saturday, April 13!  Come watch the charming gray whale mothers and calves swim by the point, so close you can sometimes hear them breathe.  Turn around and look up at the amazing kites that will fill the sky above the Lighthouse grounds.  We welcome back both our migrating gray whales and the always entertaining Berkeley Kite Wranglers to celebrate the Spring breezes and our favorite marine mammals.   Local whale experts and gray whale census takers Scott and Tree Mercer will be on hand with displays of baleen whale artifacts and to answer your questions about the marine mammals that visit the waters off the Lighthouse peninsula.  Visit our Whale Watch Room  and enjoy the interactive touchscreen kiosk showcasing the marine mammals and other residents in the ocean that surrounds the Lighthouse.  Enjoy a bowl of handmade Lighthouse Clam Chowder, made by Lisa Giacomini of Baby Tomato and on sale in our Museum from 11:30 a.m. until 3 p.m.  Lisa will also be offering quart Mason jars of the chowder to take home.  The Lighthouse Gift Store will be offering sale prices on whale related gifts and other items.  Other activities and attractions may be added to this great Spring celebration, visit this page regularly for updates.

A big Lighthouse thank you to B. Bryan Preserve for having the Kite Wranglers stay in their Carriage House, and to Pier Chowder House & Tap Room for feeding them!
