World famous whale watching aboard a world-famous yacht! San Diego is the best place in the world to see whales, they are just off our coast year-round. Winter brings migrating Gray Whales traveling south to warm Baja Lagoons. Gray Whales then swim north in the spring to cold nutritious Alaskan waters. Sailing aboard the Yacht America offers an interactive and eco-friendly experience, fun for the whole family. Raise 5,900 sq. ft of sail to glide through the San Diego Bay and out to the ocean aboard this magnificent 139 ft Yacht America. Quiet propulsion provides great views of the whales, you can even hear them breath. Located at the San Diego Maritime Museum, your ticket includes entrance to all the exhibits. Water, soda, chips, and granola bars are also included. Feel free to bring your own lunch and drinks for a luxurious picnic.
