San Diego Hornblower Whale & Dolphin Watching

San Diego is one of the best locations to watch whales year-round!

Gray Whales migrate winter to spring from feeding grounds in Alaskan waters to calving lagoons in Baja California and back. In summer, the legendary Blue Whales - the largest animals on Earth - and Humpback Whales commonly feed off-shore of the San Diego coast. We also often spot Minke Whales, Fin Whales, and large pods of Dolphins.

If you love whales, dolphins, sea lions, and sea birds, hop on board for a breathtaking experience on the open ocean. We’ll speed out to sea on one of our large, comfortable yachts and pass barking sea lions and pods of leaping dolphins as we search for the legendary gray or blue whales - known for migrating the longest distance of any mammal on Earth.

As we make our way on the 3.5-hour tour, we’ll be treated to a live narration by our experienced captain and our on-board naturalist (from the San Diego Natural History Museum). You’ll stay cozy and comfortable with both indoor and outdoor seating and a snack bar featuring hot food, a full bar, and souvenirs.
