Orca Whales In Our Neighborhood! 

Lighthouse Marine Park has become known as one of the best places to view Orca whales from land. In summer months, members of the three local pods frequently pass close by these shores, offering a thrilling glimpse of the lives of these endangered animals. Watch for Orcas coming to the surface to breathe while swimming or feeding, and you may also be treated to a spectacle of jumps and tail slaps!
