The weather was cool. I wore layers, as it got hold and warm depending on the wind speed, direction and cloud cover.

This was one of the worst outings I have ever had in my life. My boyfriend & I took his three kids, ages 10-16 for what was suppose to be a fun day in Catalina. The three & a half hours on the boat was sheer hell. We did not expect to be in a open...continued

Description

Newport Landing’s Catalina Island Whale & Dolphin cruise offers a day full of ocean adventures. Departing at 9:00am from Newport Beach, the cruise immediately begins with excellent viewing opportunities of whales and dolphins just outside Newport Harbor. For the next 3 1/2 hours, viewing opportunities continue as the cruise crosses the Catalina Channel. During this time opportunities to view blue whales, grey whales, humpback whales, fin back whales, and many more whale species are possible. Several types of dolphin and many other unique marine creatures are also viewed while traveling the Catalina Channel.

Upon reaching Catalina Island, the cruise stops at Two Harbors for a 2 hour drop off. During the 2 hours you can get a bite to eat or explore Catalina.

Soon it is time to head back across the Catalina Channel to the Southern California mainland. You will dock back in Newport Harbor around 6:00pm. A day on the ocean and touring Catalina is a wonderful way to experience the great diversity of the marine life that inhabits these unique areas. View coastal, open ocean, and island environments all on one fun filled trip. Take part in experiencing a side of Southern California that many never get to enjoy.
