SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The 25th annual Whale Watch and Intertidal Festival begins Saturday at Point Loma amid the most bountiful whale-watching season in recent memory.

A pod of about 10 orcas -- killer whales -- were spotted feeding off the Palos Verdes Peninsula in Los Angeles County, and off Dana Point in Orange County this past week.
The festival, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, will include experts on gray whales, and talks about habitats, such as the tide pools at the park.
