San Diego County Credit Union Sponsors Dana Point Festival of Whales

Event celebrates annual migration of California gray whales

SAN DIEGO, Calif., (March 6, 2020)--San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), one of Southern California’s largest locally-owned financial institutions, is a proud sponsor of the 49th Annual Dana Point Festival of Whales, an event celebrating the annual migration of California gray whales along California’s coastline. The festival will be held over two weekends, on March 7-8 and 14-15, in the Orange County community of Dana Point.
“SDCCU is proud to continue its support of this wonderful event bringing the community and families together in celebration of the Dana Point Festival of Whales.” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Campbell. “As a longtime sponsor of the Dana Point Festival of Whales, SDCCU is glad to help the Festival of Whales Foundation continue to inform and inspire people from around the world on ocean life protection and preservation.”
As the West Coast’s largest seafaring celebration, the Festival of Whales annually draws approximately 100,000 visitors during the height of the whale-watching season. The event features whale watching excursions from Dana Point Headlands Conservation Park, a street fair geared towards families, arts and crafts exhibits, classic car and vintage boat displays, sand sculpting, educational environmental activities and concerts on land and water.
More than 20,000 California gray whales travel along the West Coast, headed from arctic waters to Baja California, as part of their 6,000-mile, 8-to-10-week migratory passing to give birth or mate. These 35-ton mammals also are joined by humpback whales, fin whales, blue whales and even pods of killer whales in recent years.
