Each 2.5-hour tour cruises the waters up to 15 miles from Newport Bay in search of finback whales, blue whales, minke whales, humpback whales, and dolphin pods. These tours are scheduled during the gray-whale migration season, which may result in a higher count of gray-whale sightings.

Ocean Explorer Cruises

Water laps against the edge of the boat as a a dolphin leaps over waves just off the port side. Its smooth, graceful body arcs through the water, swimming with the speed only a set of flippers can muster. Ocean Explorer Cruises seeks out magical moments like this one on the deep blue sea, giving guests a chance to encounter everything from sunsets to Humpback whales. Cruises depart from Newport Bay and set off in search of marine environments on whale watching cruises, romantic settings on sunset cruises, and Christmas light displays or American flags and fireworks on holiday cruises.
