San Diego Whale Watch, San Diego

4.4
San Diego's FIRST year round whale and dolphin watching experience!

We embark on 3-hour trips aboard the Privateer in the search for a variety of marine animals. We often see sea lions, seals, a variety of birds, dolphins, and different species of whales depending on the time of year. Throughout the months of December-April, we enjoy the annual Gray Whale migration along the coast of California. In the summer, we are able to encounter the mighty Blue Whales feeding miles offshore!

We get occasional visits from Humpback, Minke and Fin Whales, as well as Sea Turtles and even sharks! Join us on one of our whale watching adventures to enjoy some of the Pacific Ocean's most magnificent creatures!

  • I had Amazing time. So far I have been going every July to see the Blue Whales. It never gets old. I love that the crew will also picking up any plastic in the ocean. They truly care about their mission to educate people about whales and dolphins but also about keeping our oceans clean!
  • Enjoyed the tour very much. the tour I was on we weren't able to see any whales BUT, we got amazing shots dolphins and even a rare look at a shark or two. Me and my girlfriend always taking another tour and we will more than likely come back to here.
