What Will I See On The Dolphin and Whale Watching Trip?
We take you on a 2 and 1/2 hour fun-filled ocean adventure. We see whales and dolphins all year round! Blue whales and gray whales are encountered seasonally and throughout the year fin whales, minke whales, and humpback whales are seen. Once in a while killer whales, Bryde’s whales, sei whales, sperm whales, pilot whales, and false killer whales are spotted. Five species of wild dolphins are seen including long and short-beaked common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, Risso’s dolphins, and pacific white-sided dolphins. Sometimes we see mega-pods of dolphins that number in the thousands! We also see sea lions, harbor seals, several types of marine birds, and even sharks including great white sharks and rare basking sharks.
It can be cooler out on the water so a jacket or windbreaker is a good idea. The Southern California sun is wonderful but don’t forget to protect your eyes and skin with sunglasses and sunscreen. And, of course, you’ll want to bring a camera!
