Have you ever seen a 90-foot giant blue whale? How about a humpback whale? Whale Watching San Diego gives you the chance to view these majestic creatures — along with dolphins, seals, killer whales, sharks and other sea life — with expert commentary from a captain and crew.

Newport Landing Whale Watching San Diego has served the Southern California area for over 30 years with whale watching and dolphin cruises daily. The coast of California is famous for bordering the routes of various migratory whales, and Newport Landing invites you to see these magnificent mammals up-close and in their natural habitat.

Year around cruises let passengers view an array of whale species, as well as dolphins, seals, and other marine life. The excursion lasts approximately an hour and a half.

Newport Landing boasts a 65-foot vessel with an upstairs sundeck, wraparound seating, a snack bar, and an indoor seating area with large windows for cooler or windier days. The ship was specifically designed for the viewing of marine life in a comfortable fashion. The captains and crew members are well-versed on the subject of marine mammals, with extensive backgrounds in marine biology and ecosystems.
