The Canyon Lake Yacht Club is hosting its inaugural Whale Hunt on Saturday, July 25, at 2 p.m. This community event will take place in the East Bay and is open to all boaters. Yacht Club membership is not required to participate.

The mission of the hunt is to capture the whale that has been recently spotted on the lake. Boaters participating in the Whale Hunt must pick up a hunting package at the Diamond Point Park dock at 2 p.m. Each package includes instructions for the scavenger hunt, multiple trivia question, and clues to the whale’s location.  

The Whale Hunt is completed when the boat returns to Diamond Point Park and the boat captain deposits their captured whale, scavenger items, and answered trivia questions into the red collection bucket on the dock.

“This event is designed to provide fun for the community while still being able to maintain social distancing,” said Yacht Club Commodore Dave Dain
