Each winter, pods of California Gray Whales pass by San Diego on their annual migration south to the warm lagoons of Baja. During the spring, they return to their summer home of Alaska and the Bering Sea, passing through Southern California's waters again. H&M Landing offers the opportunity to see these majestic mammals, along with various other forms of marine life, live and up-close on this tour off the coast of San Diego. The trip includes an informative narrative about the whales and their migration. The boats are equipped with indoor and outdoor seating and a galley lounge complete with hot food and beverage service. Learn More

Went yesterday, Sunday, down to San Diego with a sailing/ racing girlfriend for an outing on a spectator boat, Galilean, from H&M landing, Point Loma (normally a charter fishing boat w/ indoor and outdoor viewing) to watch the visiting America's Cup boats racing series! Little did we know, when we anchored, that the finish line
would be approx 125 feet off our bow!.... OMG....
The threat of rain was there, but actually held off until after the end! I heard later that the wind was about 12 -18 knots, so the multi hulled boats sailed very fast!
With all that speed,and the angle of the finish line, they were streaming by within a boat length of our position!
We couldn't have asked for a better location! They came by so FAST , that we didn't even have time to readjust our cameras/phones from totally zoomed in, to get them in full frame before they passed by!
Wow!.... as we watched from one side of the boat, one of the gals called out to her dad, " turn around!" and we thought she wanted to take a picture of him, and, as we turned, behind us, the boat from Korea sailed by so closely, and swiftly, that for a few split seconds, we could see the actual faces of the crew! Totally Awesome!
At the end of it all, the seven of us, (usually 35 passenger maximum,booked to 11, but only 7 went out!)kept looking at each other, with irrepressible smiles.. in total disbelief ....but totally satisfied, with all we had witnessed and snapped, that day!
Thank you, Galilean Skipper and "crew" for an unforgettable experience!
