Go Hiking, Kayaking, Whale Watching, Beachcombing

2 miles of Clallam Bay shoreline are open for the outdoor and water activities of your choice. The shoreline in the photo above stretches between Sekiu and the town of Clallam Bay out of the photo to the right.

Plus, there are multiple turnouts along Hwy 112 providing immediate access to the Strait of Juan de Fuca. One of these turnouts is at Shipwreck Point. Located just a few miles west of Sekiu at mile post 6, this 472 acre State Natural Resource Conservation park is secluded with three miles of tidepools, coves and views of sea stacks and old growth coastal forest rimming the water.

The Whale Trail includes Shipwreck Point. Perhaps as you  view and hike the area, you'll also catch sight of these mammoth mammals, whether orca whales, humpback, or other species. Shipwreck Point is open sunrise to sunset. Olympic National Park visitor's pass not needed. Several small pull-outs have access to the beach.

If it is whale watching you're interested in, go to Sekiu Overlook, binoculars in hand.

This is because whale watching from the vantage point of land is not always as advantageous as watching whales from the deck of a boat. 

Getting There: On Hwy 112 heading west, go past the turnoff into Sekiu (Front Street). Immediately after the junction is the overlook and parking area, which overlooks the Sekiu and its harbor. If you've timed your visit with the Chinook salmon spawn, you might get lucky as see orcas that have come right into the harbor.

Find more Whale Trail info at the Clallam Bay page.
