During the four-hour cruise, passengers ride a yacht out into the open ocean while learning facts on marine life from the captain and an onboard naturalist from the San Diego Natural History Museum. As the yacht searches for the elusive blue whale, its prow passes over more common species such as sea lions and dolphins. All trips depart at 9 a.m. every Saturday and Sunday.
