San Diego Whale Watch


San Diego Whale Watch sets sail along the scenic Pacific coastline in search of the area's most beautiful and splash-happy underwater residents. An experienced marine naturalist lends their knowledge and keen eyes to each three-hour tour, pointing out whales and dolphins as they surface alongside the hull of veteran Coast Guard-certified vessel the Privateer. The spacious and clean New England-style boat seats 149 passengers and floats low in the water to allow its passengers up-close views of the amazing marine wildlife from indoor and outdoor decks and seating areas.  

Each person will be responsible to make their own reservation, and pay the tour company directly.  Space is limited to a first come first served basis, so book early.

December through April Join us as we observe part of the longest migration of any mammal on earth! Reaching up to 45 ft. in length and weighing up to 40 tons, Gray Whales depart from their summer feeding grounds in Alaska and migrate south along the west coast to the isolated lagoons of Baja California, Mexico to mate and give birth. We are lucky enough to see both the south and northbound migraters up until the end of April. Although we are just one passing point along their route, Gray Whales travel up to 12,000 miles, roundtrip, on an annual basis! Because they hug the coast during their migration, we can spot these gentle giants within only a few miles from the coast!

For a limited time, a Groupon is available for the San Diego Whale Watch (click here). 

Cost: $29.00 pp

We'll be meeting at 8:15 AM, to gather our group before going aboard for our 9 AM departure.  

Don't forget to dress in layers, it will be cool to start and then warm over the tour.  Also, sunscreen is important even on overcast mornings!
