Just like the migrating Pacific gray whales, Whale of a Weekend returns to the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium Feb. 11 & 12! Aquarium visitors can feel the heft of a whale rib, check out bristly baleen, and try on a layer of (simulated) whale blubber for warmth. Kids of all ages can have their faces painted and make a whale visor to take home. Learn more interesting facts about these gentle giants at the Aquarium through story time, audio interactives and presentations about the gray whale’s migration habits.
Aquarium naturalists will staff a wildlife observation station at the west end of the Santa Monica Pier.  Those who stop by are welcome to spy for whales through binoculars and field guides will identify local birds and marine life.
Event Schedule:
1-4 p.m. Wildlife Observation Station (Saturday and Sunday, West End of the Pier)
2:00 p.m. Whale of a Tale Story Time (Saturday Only)
3:30 p.m. Shark Feeding and Presentation (Sunday Only)
