Blue Whale facts and information

If you love whales, dolphins, sea lions, and sea birds, hop on board for a breathtaking experience on the open ocean. We’ll speed out to sea on one of our large, comfortable yachts and pass barking sea lions and pods of leaping dolphins as we search for the legendary blue whales. As we make our 4-hour tour, we’ll be treated to a live narration by our experienced captain and our on-board naturalist (from the San Diego Natural History Museum). You’ll stay cozy and comfortable with both indoor and outdoor seating and a snack bar featuring hot food, a full bar, and souvenirs.

San Diego Whale Watching Whale watching with Natural History Museum

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.

Great cruise. Great crew. Beautiful weather. Couldn't have asked for anything better. I've lived in San Diego for 37 years and have never been on a whale watching cruise (if you can believe that) so this was a wonderfully anticipated experience.
