Hop on board a Hornblower Cruise for a breathtaking experience on the open ocean in search of gray whales and other wildlife. As we make our way on a 3.5-hour tour, we’ll be treated to a live narration by our experienced captain and our on-board naturalist (from the San Diego Natural History Museum). You’ll stay cozy and comfortable with both indoor and outdoor seating and a snack bar featuring hot food, a full bar, and souvenirs.
