More about Whalefest Monterey

 

Whalefest Monterey, a recent recipient of the prestigious Sea Star Award from the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, has been held for the past decade as a free, fun and educational interactive public event for all ages on Old Fisherman’s Wharf celebrating the biodiversity of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Traditionally, the event attracts thousands of visitors to Monterey and features a 2-day Symposium in a conference setting with world-renowned marine experts, creative activities, musical entertainment, and dozens of exhibit booths with interactive displays that showcase marine life, educate about ocean related environmental issues, and emphasize sustainability practices. It benefits many local and national marine organizations that educate, inspire, and empower the public to protect the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS). People come from around the world to view the many whales, orcas, dolphins, seals and sea lions, otters and sea birds in Monterey Bay.
