Ocean cruises are a luxurious way to relax and see the sights, unlike boarding dolphins equipped with saddles, which usually results in whiplash and water-filled lungs. Cruise the blue in comfort with today's Groupon: for $30, you get two tickets for a whale-watching or dolphin and sea life cruise (up to a $60 value) from Harbor Breeze Cruises in Rainbow Harbor, adjacent to the Aquarium of the Pacific.

With the help of double-decker sightseeing yachts, Harbor Breeze Cruises introduces sea explorers to marine life in its most natural habitat. Seafarers will return to shore with new sea knowledge imparted by experienced captains, none of whom have ever lost a fight to a marauding Peter Pan. On the whale-watching cruise, awestruck Argonauts can wonder at the sights of Pacific gray whales, who’ll be migrating along the coastline through April as they head south from Alaska to visit their grandkids, marking the last chance to see whales until June. Other whales may be seen on the tour, along with frequent guest appearances by dolphins, porpoises, and other marine life. During the dolphin and sea life cruise, saltwater fans can ogle ocean beings such as bottlenose dolphins and their rambunctious pet sea lions, and they can also catch views of Point Fermin Lighthouse and Cabrillo Beach.

Each Coast Guard–certified boat is equipped with lavatories, a snack bar, and expansive views of the ocean blue. Harbor Breeze's new boat, the Christopher, is specifically designed for whale-watching and is laden with stadium seating to help cruisers see every underwater touchdown and alley-oop. The two and a half hour tours explore the Pacific every day at 12 and 3 p.m., with an additional tour at 9 a.m. on weekends.

Although Harbor Breeze Cruises sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Reviews

Harbor Breeze Cruises received a four-star average ratings from Yelpers, and five TripAdvisors gave the company an average rating of four owl eyes:

  • The tour staff was friendly, and helpful, even telling me when to snap the best picture of the whales! – TabMarie, TripAdvisor
  • The trip was fun and educational for both my mother and I. My son loved it and still remembers the tour whenever I recall the experience with him. – Caroline C., Yelp

Great customer service
Davonna F. · September 28, 2014
Absolutely amazing! We had the best time. California is so beautiful. We seen well over 100 dolphins, a few sea lions, several birds and the light house was amazing. This is a must.

The boat was very new and nice. Crew was very informative and friendly. Ride was smooth and peaceful. No whales seen, just a few schools of "whale" dolphins. No krill for the whales to eat yet this time of year😢.
