Contrary to popular belief, boats are actually much safer than cars, which inexplicably sink every time you drive them on water. Take a proper water road ride with today's Groupon: for $14, you get a sunset cruise with San Diego Whale Watch (up to a $31 total value).
The marine team at San Diego Whale Watch organizes sunset cruises on the Privateer, a 149-passenger boat boasting spacious outdoor decks and an interior viewing area. After departing from Mission Bay, the approximately 90-minute excursion totes passengers along San Diego’s immaculate coastline stretching across white-sand beaches offset by the skyscrapers of downtown. Watch as the setting sun paints the tranquil Pacific first a fiery red, then a shadowy purple, followed by a retina-shocking argyle pattern. Cruise goers can stand out on the deck to search for dolphins and sea lions or share a treat from the snack bar and take in the fading western sky from a climate-controlled indoor area.
San Diego Whale Watch's rates fluctuate during the week.
San Diego Whale Watch
San Diego Whale Watch sets sail along the scenic Pacific coastline in search of the area's most beautiful and splash-happy underwater residents. An experienced marine naturalist lends their knowledge and keen eyes to each three-hour tour, pointing out whales and dolphins as they surface alongside the hull of veteran Coast Guard-certified vessel the Privateer. The spacious and clean New England-style boat seats 149 passengers and floats low in the water to allow its passengers up-close views of the amazing marine wildlife from indoor and outdoor decks and seating areas. Daytime tours embark as early as 10 a.m. to catch the whales as they commute to work.
