Set sail on the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific Ocean for an adventure you will never forget. San Diego whale watching expeditions offer patrons the chance to get away from the city for a few hours and take in the beautiful spectacle of the seas and observe some of nature's most spectacular creatures. The fun starts the moment you leave the harbor and you take in an incredible view of the San Diego skyline. Narrated by an expert marine biologist, whale-watching tours are a rare opportunity to learn about the mysteries of the ocean. Along the way keep an eye out for sea lions, maritime birds, seals, dolphins, and many other animals. The state-of-the-art boat offers a smooth ride and has a roomy outdoor deck with plenty of space to get a clear view of the action.
During whale watching season from December through April, the seas are bursting with beautiful Pacific Grey Whales that are migrating from Alaska to Mexico. From May through November you will see massive Blue Whales in their natural habitat. These stunning specimens measure over 100 feet and weigh almost 200 tons, and they travel at high speeds, so they can put on an unforgettable show.
These special tours are offered year-round so no matter what time you are visiting San Diego, you'll have a good chance of spotting these majestic animals. However, there is a guarantee that if you don't see any whales on the rare chance, you'll get a free pass to come back.
