Cabrillo National Monument is hosting their annual Whale Watch Weekend and Intertidal Life Festival this Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The 23rd annual event is being held in celebration of the Pacific gray whales and their return to local waters during their southbound migration to Baja California.

The weekend will feature opportunities to watch for the leviathans as well as guided tidepool walks.

There will also be films, guest speakers sharing their expertise on a variety of marine-related subjects, and exhibitor booths filled with activities and information about whales, tidepools and local oceanic organizations.

All events are included with the regular park entrance fee of $5 per vehicle and $3 for motorcyclists, bicyclists and walk-ins.

Cabrillo National Monument is located at the tip of the Point Loma Peninsula, just west of the city of San Diego.
