San Diego Whale & Dolphin Watching Tours

Hornblower Cruises & Events San DiegoSan Diego is one of the best locations to watch whales year-round! Gray Whales migrate winter-spring from feeding grounds in Alaskan waters to calving lagoons in Baja California and back. In summer, the legendary Blue Whales- the largest animals on Earth- commonly feed offshore of the San Diego coast. They often see other species such as Humpback Whales, Fin Whales, Pilot Whales and even Killer Whales on their cruises!


Champagne Jazz Brunch Cruises

It was an amazing experience!! I enjoyed the San Diego downtown view from the Harbor. You can see many war ships like... air craft carries, cruisers, destroyers and many other types I don't even know their names. The Captain will describe the sights on a mic. The cruise lasts way longer than I expected, therefore I'd say its cheap.read more

We loved our whale watching cruise on Hornblower Cruises in San Diego - even though we didn't see any whales! the... cruise itself is beautiful. We had great views of the city, the military in the area, a submarine, and sea lions hanging out on buoys.The ship is large, clean and comfortable - with plenty of room for visitors to spread out. Snacks and drinks are sold on the ship too - not a large selection, but offering something is a nice treat.If you don't see any whales on your cruise, they offer a free ticket to use within one year. I'd suggest booking your whale-watching cruise for your first day in San Diego - that way if it is canceled for the weather (we know others that happened to), or you don't see whales, you'll have other days on that same trip to try to see whales.read more

Ambiance is awkward. Where was the music? The employees had music at the bar but I couldn't hear anything by my table,... other than a large drunk party. Going on the deck made the night, amazing views! Loved the food, although the drinks were low quality. Not sure if I'd do it again.read more
