San Diego Whale Watching
If you’ve never had the opportunity to go whale watching, now is the time to do it, during your visit to San Diego. With 70 miles of coastline directly in the migration path of 20,000 gray whales on their way to Baja California to give birth to their calves, San Diego is one of the best places in the world to see these giant mammals in their own environment. You’ll be awed by their size—they are nearly the width of a basketball court. There are several San Diego companies that offer whale watching cruises. You’ll want to select a year-round company because their operators understand and appreciate the whales’ migration patterns and will make sure you have the best whale-watching experience of your life. Hornblower Cruises & Events, Flagship Cruises & Events, Next Level Sailing, Xplore Offshore and H & M Landing are proud to offer whale-watching tours where you can have a close-up look at these magnificent, awe-inspiring creatures.
With Hornblower you will be treated to a live narration by an experienced captain and on-board naturalist from San Diego Natural History Museum. You’ll be able to stay cozy and comfortable with both indoor and outdoor seating and a snack bar featuring hot food, a full bar, and souvenirs. Hornblower Cruises and Events (855) 552-9051
