San Diego is one of the best locations to watch whales year-round! If you love whales, dolphins 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 leaping dolphins as we search for the legendary gray whales—known for migrating the longest distance of any mammal on Earth. Your cruise includes professional live narration on marine life from our expert captains and volunteer naturalists called "The Whalers" from the San Diego Natural History Museum (The NAT).
