Watch for whales and dolphins off Newport Beach aboard a double-decker catamaran with bow seating and 360-degree views. A diverse array of marine wildlife thrives in the protected area just outside Newport Bay, and you'll have the chance to see humpbacks, gray whales, finback whales, blue whales, seals, and several species of dolphins. The boat has a 96% success rate spotting whales or dolphins, making this a great way to explore California wildlife in a gorgeous natural environment.

On the day we went out to the tour, heavy fog covered the entire area, at some point, it was starting to get clear. However, it was still very foggy in the see. The crew which knew the bad conditions decided to go out even when they knew we will see nothing. Eventually, we came back earlier than planned.
I think in such condition the crew had to cancel and refund everybody and not trying to make money when they knew there's nothing to go out for.
We really enjoyed this cruise, it was more and exciting than expected. Go early, and get on line, so you get good seats on the boat. We saw loads of dolphins and whales, what a thrill and very memorable Very much worth the trip and money. Can't be beat!.
