Whale Walk Painting – Whale Painting Fun for Everyone! Join friends and family to help paint a life size whale that will add to the collection of wonderful whale paintings already on display. We will paint from 9 AM – 2 PM and supply the paint and brushes. You will supply the artist’s touch. Free and open to the public. We will be on the Doheny State Beach “Whale Walk” by the snack bar (Boneyard Beach Cafe). Please alert the entrance staff upon arrival so they can direct you to parking and the “Whale Walk.”

Hourly parking in the Doheny State Beach lot is $2/hour (at onsite payment kiosks) for this event and throughout the Festival weekends. After painting you can hop on the FREE shuttle service and take in the rest of the Festival of Whales activities and displays throughout the Harbor. You may also pay for parking via the PassportParking Mobile Pay app for smartphones and tablets. This app is available for both iPhones and Android phones (App Store and Google Play).

The benefit of the PassportParking Mobile Pay application is in addition to making the initial payment for parking, time can also be added remotely in case you are having a great time at the Harbor events and don’t want to return to the parking lot just yet to retrieve your car.
