One of the most amazing sights in nature is that of majestic whales swimming and playing on the ocean's surface, leaping out of the water and slapping their mighty tales. On this 2.5 hour cruise off the shores of Newport Beach, you may see giant blue whales during the summer and fall months or the annual grey whale migration bringing tens of thousands of grey whales along the coast during the winter and spring months. Huge pods of several species of dolphin are very common as are the resident sea lions. You may also catch glimpses of seals, killer whales, sharks and many other marine creatures. With a 96% success rate, almost every cruise has many viewing opportunities. An added plus is picturesque coastal backdrops of Newport Beach, Laguna Beach and Huntington Beach. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
- "One of the most entrancing literary treats of many a year...A tapestry of extraordinary nuance and richness." --Wall Street Journal
- Alexander McCall Smith's <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1400034779/ref=nosim/jillyswest" target="_blank"><em>The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency</em></a>
This Zimbabwe-born Scot and former professor of medical law became an overnight sensation in the U.S. with the 2002 release of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, "a literary confection of such gossamer deliciousness that one feels it can only be good for you" (The New York Times). Starring Precious Ramotswe, a charming and delightfully cunning Botswana woman who sets up shop in a small storefront under the African sky, the award-winning mystery series has become a beloved international bestseller. The seventh installment is due out in April 2006.
