San Diego has become a global destination for visitors to observe one of the longest migrations on our planet, the Pacific Gray Whale. Each year, thousands of these gentle giants pass right offshore as they head south to the calving lagoons of Baja Mexico, and then back North returning to their traditional feeding grounds in the Bering Sea. Marine Sanctuaries established along our seacoast provide a haven for a diversity of wildlife, all of which are commonly observed. Interpretation is provided by our team of experienced captains with decades of time on the water identifying wildlife of the region.

A boat ride into coastal waters provides the unique opportunity to experience this magnificent migration first hand.
