As an experienced pilot navigates a U.S. Coast Guard–inspected vessel around the Coronado Islands, guests peer into endless blue seas to catch a glimpse of blue, finback, and minke whales erupting from the crests of waves. Tours begin at 9 a.m. and include breakfast, lunch, and drinks. Check the schedule for available dates.
Pacific Nature Tours
Pacific Nature Tours' experienced captains and their crews navigate a seaworthy 70-foot, US Coast Guard–inspected vessel—the Eclipse—through waters in search of friendly marine life and ambivalent birds. As the Eclipse safely sails around island coasts, knowledgeable naturalists narrate the expeditions, which include two whale-watching excursions. Aquatic creatures ranging from dolphins and sea lions to pool noodles can be spotted in their natural habitats from the ship's spacious deck or from within the interior viewing area, which is equipped with satellite TV. All tours operate out of Seaforth Landing.
