— Welcome to the Whale Trail —

Sail and Seal Rocks rise from the seascape in front
of you, where Snow Creek enters the Strait of Juan
de Fuca. This rich and productive marine habitat
attracts fishermen, divers, kayakers—and whales!

Snow Creek overlook is one of the best places
along the Strait to see gray whales. Watch for
them close to shore, where they feed in the
shallow, sloping bay. Look for their heart-shaped
blows near the sea stacks.

Wolf eels, lingcod and octopuses thrive in the
boulders and kelp. East of here, the wreck of the
steamship Andalusia forms an artificial reef that is
home to dozens of species.

To the west, the Strait makes a transition to the
Pacific Ocean and Olympic Coast National Marine
Sanctuary. The sanctuary teems with marine
mammals, seabirds, fishes and other sea life.

What will you discover?

The Whale Trail is a series of sites around the region where you may view orcas and other whales or marine mammals from shore.
