Whale watching and dolphin watching in San Diego

I took a friend on the San Diego Whale Watching Trip. We saw many whales, and a Humpback Whale that breached so many times, I lost track! One time it was a full breach about 40 yards out from the boat! The Crew was great and I thank them!

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.

Our family had so much fun on our whale watch. The captain was so knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about the trip. We saw two Fin whales. The volunteers from the Natural History Museum were amazing. My children will remember this event forever.

The captain was very nice specially demonstrating so well to make it enjoyable; me and my wife were so excited to see the whale. It's a life time experience; I already recommended this cruise to my friends; its a must in San Diego.

A BIG THANK YOU for the whale watching set up on Wednesday. Along with the excellent weather we saw at least 8 whales on the Wednesday afternoon sail.. I wanted to mention that I loved the narrative by Captain Eric. He was clear and very easy to understand, presenting just the right information without going "overboard"! Going out annually is almost a religious experience for me and a great refresher as to what our guests can expect to experience. Thank you for making it possible and I look forward to more referrals for this great whale watching season. The referrals are definitely made with great enthusiasm.

Just finished the most amazing day aboard the Hornblower whale watching tour! We saw tons of whales and dolphins. The crew was super friendly and knowledgeable about the sea life and just as excited as the passengers when we saw whales breech (multiple times!!). I would highly recommend this company.
