What You'll Get

Board the ship and enjoy the seasonal migrations of the California Gray Whales November through May and Year Round are always on the lookout for the larger, pelagic Blue and Fin whales when their feeding patterns bring them into our lovely Santa Monica Bay.

In addition to whales, expect to see Sea Lions, Dolphin, Porpoise, Seals, and a myriad of beautiful and unusual sea birds, some of which are never seen near land, Huge Sea Turtles and darting Minke Whales, giant Mola Mola and shoals of Sardines and Anchovies may be encountered.

There is seating both inside and on deck and food and beverage service is aboard. All boats have a well earned reputation for finding whales in the Santa Monica Bay.
