Boarding daily at 8:45 a.m., four-hour cruises sail past the San Diego skyline while narrators (including volunteer naturalists from the San Diego Natural History Museum) point out blue whales and expound on local environmental efforts. Passengers will also likely spot sea lions, harbor seals, and dolphins, as well as San Diego landmarks. Enjoy the sunshine on the observation deck, or head inside the ship for climate-controlled seating and a snack bar.
