There are about 400 gray whales that do not go as far north as Alaska to feed in the summer. They feed along coasts of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. We generally have whales on the central coast from July through mid November. These whales are seen very close to shore while feeding and can often be seen from many of these same locations into January.

Gateway to Discovery
NCLC’s focus is on the land, and our primary tool is acquisition. But that’s not our only tool, and connecting with the land holds as much importance to us. To that end, we’ve developed the Gateway to Discovery, a “virtual” natural history center, where you can find resources to help you start exploring these connections.
The moon and the tides are essential to the amazing productivity of oceans, rivers, and estuaries. And of course to explore these riches, you will need a good tide calendar!

Arch Cape Inn and Retreat is in the process of changing its mission statement and daily living activities in order to become eligible for green certification. A particular emphasis for us focuses on protecting and preserving the water quality of our local area.
In an effort to keep our water clean, water that surrounds us everywhere, we are making changes in our habits. One such change that is easy to do is to use ordinary vinegar in a spray bottle as a surface cleaning agent.

As a part of a retreat event, portions of the proceeds will be donated to the North Coast Land Conservancy. This commitment makes your travel dollar worth much more.
