There’s still about 3-1/2 months of prime whale-watching season left in Southern California, so if you live there or are visiting the area, consider taking a whale watching cruise with Newport Landing. Newport Landing has been offering whale watching in Southern California for more than 20 years. Every day, the company takes locals and tourists out on adventures off the coast of Orange County, California – in the Pacific Ocean – to catch glimpses of giant blue whales, gray whales, finback whales, and possibly many other whales.
Whale Watching in Southern California Year Round
A near-endless ocean filled with magnificent whales and other marine creatures awaits your discovery year round off of the coast of Southern California. On a Newport Landing whale watching cruise from Newport Harbor, you have the chance to see this wildlife up close with stunning scenery all around. The crisp air, lush coastline, and azure waters provide a beautiful backdrop for the animals you will encounter. Whales, dolphins, sea lions, and more make the ocean come to life as they play and roam in their natural habitat.
An Unforgettable Experience
One of the largest protected marine parks in the world sits just outside of Southern California’s Newport Bay, and many types of whales and dolphins are often spotted there. On daily-departing trips from Newport Landing, whale watchers can view the grey whale migration from December to April, which brings hundreds of grey whales directly off the coast of Laguna Beach and minutes from Newport Harbor. From May to December, warmer water attracts blue whales and cruisers can view these 80-foot-long behemoths mere feet from their boat. Also from May to December, finback whales, huge dolphin pods, seals, sharks, and even killer whales are in view of Newport Landing’s whale watching vessels.
