It's a whale with a great mural, but that's about it. The view from the bay at the convention center (where this wall exists) is pretty nice.

I enjoy going over to the convention center every time we visit Padre Island, and it's just to see that beautiful and unique paining of the Orcas.

Felt like we were back in Hawaii! Very nice mural; worth stopping by on your way to the "end of the road" or the convention center.

This was such a nice photo op and very quick as well! The wall itself is very huge so you can easily fit a huge family in one picture!

Just a painting wall. If you by any chance pass by during the sunset, I recommend you can stop and take pictures there. Otherwise, it is not a MUST place.

This is a great stop. We walked the trails and took pics here and it's free. I would definately recommend this for families visiting with small kids.

Really beautiful. And it's free. Located at the convention center and has a nice nature walk. The mural is beyond artistic. Especially if your a whale lover.

We went to this wall for the photo op. It's a whale painted life size on a large wall. Interesting to see how big they really are. Colors were very vibrant!
