With a 96% success rate in viewing whales and/or dolphins, almost every trip on this whale watching tour has opportunities to see several varieties of marine life including: the giant blue whale, finback whales, gray whales, minke whales, humpback whales, several types of dolphin (including giant rizzo's dolphin over 14 feet in length), seals, and many more. Each cruise is a unique experience; you may never know what you might encounter.

The waters surrounding Newport Harbor offer deep nutrient rich waters which attracts all types of marine creatures. Most whale watching cruises take in the scenic backdrops of Newport Beach, while viewing the gentle giants just a few hundred yards from shore. Due to the geography of the Orange County coastline that surrounds Newport Harbor, ocean conditions are incredibly calm and comparable to a fresh water lake, this allows whale watchers to fully enjoy the amazing viewings fully.

The whale watching ship is designed just for viewing marine life. Over 65 feet in length with a large upstairs sundeck, wrap around outside seating, snack bar with food and beverages, indoor seating with large windows, and plenty other amenities, the ship guarantees to make for a very comfortable and exciting trip. The ship captains & crew have backgrounds in marine biology and are incredibly knowledgeable in providing details on marine creatures, environment, and ecosystems.

Whether there is just one wild life adventurer or for a large group of wild life sight seers, this Whale Watching tour promises a magical experience for everyone.
