This was a wonderful experience, the topper was that the day was beautiful as well, me and my family had an absolute blast! Thanks for offering the trip on Groupon, otherwise I never would've been able to afford to bring everyone, be very sure that if you ever offer this trip or any other on Groupon every again, I will be back along with my family and all the friends that wish they'd have known about the deal in time to pyurchase it. Thanks again.

Very enjoyable and knowledgable crew. The Facts presented were captivating. Food choices were limited and hot chocolate was not so good. The overall experience however was top notch! Would go again!

What You'll Get

Since the dawn of humanity, man has longed to conquer the ocean, which is why the invention of the boat was followed swiftly by the adoption of the high-five. Celebrate man’s triumphs with today’s Groupon from First String Sportfishing in San Pedro. Choose between the following options:

  • For $6, you get one child’s ticket to a two-hour whale-watching cruise (a $15 value).
  • For $12, you get one adult ticket to a two-hour whale-watching cruise (a $25 value).<p>

Whale-watching cruises run Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 1 p.m.–3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.–5:30 p.m.

Piloted by a U.S. Coast Guard–licensed captain and crew, the 93-foot First String glides along the coast for a two-hour sojourn along the migration route of the California gray whale. The knowledgeable captains call upon their 30 years of combined experience to narrate the gargantuan sea mammals’ trek, answering tour-goers’ questions and decoding blowhole Morse code. Between ogling at frolicking dolphin pods or stealing glances at scantily clad sunbathing sea lions, guests wash down nibbles of hot and cold fare with beverages available for purchase within the galley or soak up rays on the 70-person sun deck. After meandering through the Catalina thoroughfare channel, the crisp white boat journeys back to the bustling port as patrons bid their newly acquainted aquatic friends farewell, exchanging addresses to keep in touch as pen pals.
