Whaling station

The area where Cabrillo landed at Ballast Point later became a whaling station. (Ballast Point was also where the old Point Loma lighthouse was once located. Or click here for more history of Ballast Point from our very own Ballast Point Brewing Company.) Archeologists discovered this site in 1988 where brick ovens and cast iron pots stood in the mid 1800s. Gray whales were killed off the coast and towed to this area where their blubber was boiled into oil.
