If you park in the lost to the south, the fee is about half what it is in the lot to the north. Steep fee for parking!

Description

Whale & Dolphin Watching Adventures are educational cruises and visual experiences for people who love sea birds, dolphins, sea lions, and whales. Whale migration season is December through April, when gray whales travel over 6,000 miles from the Arctic down to Baja California’s warm lagoons, where calves are born and can frequently be seen swimming at their mother’s side. The tour is conducted in educational partnership with the San Diego Natural History Museum.

The tour includes:

  • Professional narration on marine life from Hornblower’s expert captains.
  • Interactive presentations led by SDNHM Whalers.
  • Snack bars featuring hot food, full bar and souvenirs.
  • Climate-controlled indoor seating.
  • Views of sea lions plus famous San Diego landmarks.
