What You Can Expect
Follow the migration of the California gray whale to the warm breeding grounds off the Baja Coast. Seeing a California gray whale in the wild is an exhilarating experience you will never forget. Other marine wildlife may also make an appearance including seabirds and sea lions.
Between December and April the gray whale travels approximately 6,000 miles from the cold waters of the Arctic to the warmer waters of the Baja Coast. Here they give birth to their young and prepare them for the long trek back. On the return trip the young calves can frequently be seen swimming at their mother's side.
Guarantee: If whales are not sighted, a 'Whale Check' good for another whale watching or harbor tour will be issued.
Spectacular sights of whales on their way to the warm waters of Mexico for breeding. Never expected to see so many!! Great excursion! !
Every thing was expectacular, the tour started on time, they were so kind and the capitan made all what was under his hands so we can saw lot of whales and also dolphines. Also the explanetion was great.
We were at the end of the season, and didn't see any whales, so we were given a "Whalecheck" (good for another cruise). We went again the next day and we were privledged to see a Blue Whale. Great staff. Great boat. Great tour. Had a blast (both days). Looking forward to our next whale adventure.
Fantastic! We were lucky and picked the perfect day for weather and whale watching. We saw hundreds of dolphins swimming along the boat and then 2 humpback whales - the boat was extremely silent. It was an experience we will never forget!
Well organized. We saw 6 Grey Whales, and more then a 100 dolphins.
We had an amazing time and will highly recommend to others.
Excellent tour. We were fortunate and we saw five or six sightings.
Great trip! Well organized, getting to and onto the boat was very easy. Parking is a little tight near the dock but we parked at the USS Midway (paid for 4 hrs) and made it back just in time. We were lucky and saw several whales on our trip, but even if that hadn't happened, we still would have enjoyed it. The captain was entertaining and informative, the ship was comfortable, and the views were outstanding. I highly recommend this trip - even if the whales don't cooperate, it's a great time.
Our Captain was excellent! What a wonderful morning to watch any number of whales, and a dolphin pod numbering in the hundreds. We were most fortunate. Thank you!
Fantastic every things
