San Diego Whale Watching Whale watching with Natural History Museum
See a blue whale this summer! Blue Whale, whale watching
I took a friend of mine on the San Diego Whale Watching Trip on Sunday the 28 on the 1:30 PM Trip. We saw many whales, and I believe it was a Humpback Whale that breached so many times, I lost track! One time it was a full breach about 40 yards out from the side of the boat! The Crew was great and I thank them! I did get a picture of a tail, but the timing is the trick! Thanks again.

An all around great experience for us and our out-of-state guest. Saw whale, dolphin and sea lions. The Hornblower was a roomy and comfortable ship, and we were able to have wonderful views of the ocean, islands and San Diego skyline.
