San Diego Whale & Dolphin Watching Cruises

Premium Whale Watching featuring Gray Whales

San Diego is one of the best locations to watch whales year-round! There's no need to travel one hour north to Newport Beach or Dana Point to go whale watching when there are convenient boats departing from downtown San Diego! 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 along with Humpback Whales. We often see other species such as Fin Whales, Pilot Whales and even Killer Whales on our Hornblower Whale Watching boat cruises! See the Whale Report! This is what's going on now with whales and dolphins off San Diego coast. https://sandiegowhalewatching.com/
