2.5-Hour Whale Watch
Whether you are from the Southern California area or coming from any location around the world, it is well worth the trip for this whale watching tour that never goes out of season!
On-staff marine biologists will share wildlife facts with passengers on a sea adventure to see whales, dolphins, sea lions, and birds. Reaching up to 45 ft. in length and weighing up to 40 tons, Gray Whales depart from their summer feeding grounds in Alaska and migrate south along the West Coast to the isolated lagoons of Baja California to mate and give birth. See the southbound and northbound migraters up until the end of April. If you don’t see a whale or dolphin, then your next trip is free.
When: Everyday 9 am, 12 pm, and 3 pm. Through Thursday, December 31.
Where: San Diego Whale Watch, 1617 Quivira Road, Mission Bay, sdwhalewatch.com
