Newport Beach: Year-Round Whale Watching Cruise
- Duration: 2.5 hours
On these year-round cruises off Newport Beach, many whale varieties are regularly seen including the giant blue whale (summer and fall), finback whale, grey whale (winter and spring), minke whale, and humpback whale. Several types of dolphin, seals, and all sorts of other marine life are typically spotted on the excursions as well. The cruises depart from Newport Harbor, located in the heart of Orange County, which is just a short drive from both Los Angeles and San Diego. Each cruise is a unique experience as you may never know what you might encounter. A recent cruise encountered a pod of more than 30 killer whales, including adults and their young, making for a whale watching adventure of a lifetime. The cruises enjoy a 96 percent success rate viewing whales and/or dolphin.

The captain was very friendly and informative. He explained everything we needed to know. The cruise was for more than 2 hours and we saw 100s of dolphins but we were not that lucky to spot whales
My family really enjoyed this trip . Staff was profesional and friendly.. Although we didn’t get to see whales this time we got to see other sea creature. Recommend 100%.
We didn't get to see any whales, but the Captain made a huge effort to follow some common dolphins and we caught up to a very large pod feeding. Was amazing!
No whales, but we were able to see a huge pod of dolphins. Very worth it.
It was awesome!! My son really enjoyed seeing the dolphins
