As an experienced pilot navigates a US Coast Guard–inspected vessel around coastal waters, guests peer into endless blue seas to catch glimpses of gray whales erupting from the crests of waves as they migrate to the Baja Coast.

Pacific Nature Tours
Pacific Nature Tours' experienced captains and their crews navigate a seaworthy 70-foot, US Coast Guard–inspected vessel—the Eclipse—through Mission Bay waters in search of friendly marine life and ambivalent birds. As the Eclipse safely sails around island coasts, knowledgeable naturalists narrate the expeditions, which include two whale-watching excursions. Aquatic creatures ranging from dolphins and sea lions to pool noodles can be spotted in their natural habitats from the ship's spacious deck or from within the interior viewing area, which is equipped with satellite TV. As the Eclipse navigates Mission Bay, passengers can feast on lunch cooked on board. Meals are also included in longer trips. All tours operate out of Seaforth Landing.
What some people are buzzing about:
“prior trips using groupon - excellent trip and service”
“The crew was knowledgable and helpful to the birders and naturalists on board. There's much more to enjoy beyond the whales.”
“There is a fuel surcharge (mine was $20) which they say they cannot roll into the price of the Groupon, so be prepared for that.”
