See Whales in the Wild on a Whale-Watching Tour

Book a whale watching tour on your next adventure to see these magical creatures in the wild. Orcas, humpback whales, blue whales, and pilot whales are frequently seen jumping in the waves and playing around boats. Whale watching tours are perfect for the adventurous animal lovers who want to see animals in their natural habitat, not confined in captivity. Whale watching trips can be a whole or half-day and include special extras like food and drinks on board, stops for snorkeling, and are a great way to get out on a boat when traveling.

    Zodiac Pro 21' - Great for Offshore Adventures!

    This was the best day ever! Manolo was the epitome of a most excellent Captain, not only is he a professional wildlife videographer and an Executive Producer of a soon to be feature Film regarding global whale migrations, he is also a passionate environmentalist that knows the San Diego waters well. He was able to find all kinds of ocean critters for us to observe on our 4 hour adventure including seals, birds, dolphins and even the ever elusive Blue Whale! You really should consider taking him along if he is available!

    Zodiac Pro 21' - Great for Offshore Adventures!

    What an amazing time! We rented the boat for 4 hours on Memorial Day and cruised the bay. It’s easy to operate, great on gas and easily fits 6. I booked same day, which is a testament to the responsiveness of the owner, Manolo. Manolo was friendly and took the time to walk us through the boat’s operations so that everyone was comfortable. Thanks for a great experience 🙏

    Vessel was clean, fully fueled, well kept and ran great. We had a great time exploring the offshore waters near La Jolla. Definitely recommend booking

    Whale and Dolphin Watching Tour in Mirissa

    Really enjoyed our experience: whale and dolphin sights, local fisherman catching a huge tuna and snorkeling. Food was fantastic: fresh fruit and sandwiches. We did this as a 1st Wedding Anniversary activity. Highly recommend 😊
