About 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.
