Whale Watching San Diego by Flagship Cruises & Events

In this adventurous, three-and-a-half hour excursion, you’ll seek out majestic gray whales that migrate from Alaska to the lagoons of Baja California between late December and April. A whale sighting is guaranteed — or else you ride again for free! While the whale sightings are the real prize, you might also spot dolphins, seals, and sea lions as well.

During your cruise, you’ll listen to whale and dolphin sounds play in real time using state-of-the art research equipment from the world renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Throughout, you’ll also be kept informed by a knowledgeable naturalist from Birch Aquarium who narrates the tour. The vessels of Flagship Cruises offer both indoor and outdoor seating for your comfort.

The Go San Diego Card is the best choice for maximum savings and flexibility. Your pass includes Whale Watching San Diego by Flagship Cruises & Events, plus admission to dozens more top attractions.
