On this three-hour cruise, a certified marine biologist with 15 years of experience narrates while clients observe gray whales, blue whales, and dolphins gamboling in their natural habitat. Cruises take place aboard the Privateer, a New England–style vessel that floats low to the water and gives customers maximum access to majestic aquatic beasts and spontaneous baths. With space for 149 passengers, the tidy boat comprises indoor and outdoor seating and a snack bar. While whales can be elusive and maintain schedules packed with business trips, the experienced crew works hard to find them and provides clients who don’t see whales with discounted vouchers for a second cruise. Visitors can moor their cars in free parking.

Gray whale sessions begin December 26 and end in June.

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. Daytime tours embark as early as 10 a.m. to catch the whales as they commute to work.
