San Diego Educational Whale Watching

Only Tour Guided by Birch Aquarium Experts

Each year approximately 20,000 gray whales migrate from the Bering Sea to the lagoons of Baja California and back again. From December through April you can witness this amazing journey off the coast of San Diego on an educational whale watching excursion with Flagship Cruises & Events and our partner of 17 years, Birch Aquarium at Scripps. Get a deeper understanding of the ocean ecosystem and real-time commentary on the whales, dolphins, sea lions and other sea creatures.
