San Diego Whale Watching
A winter visit to San Diego offers the opportunity to experience nature’s most magnificent creatures up close—gray whales. These gentle giants are roughly the width of a basketball court. From December through April, over 20,000 gray whales make the 10,000 mile round-trip journey from Alaska to Baja California, where the females give birth to their calves.
Hornblower, Flagship, SD Seal Tours, and Next Level Sailing all offer spectacular whale watching tours on comfortable boats. The experienced boat captains know exactly where to find gray whales and trained naturalists narrate your wonderful whale watching experience.
