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
Reviews & Ratings
Tony Blair came into power with the Labour Party's landslide election in 1997 at the age of 44. On May 5, 2005, Blair made history by becoming the first Labour leader ever to win a third consecutive term, equaling the record of former Conservative prime minister Margaret Thatcher.
Blair moved the Labour Party to the center of British politics in a move alternatively called "New Labour" and "The Third Way," abandoning the party's traditional socialist platform in favor of promoting pro-market policies.
Blair's government pursued a variety of socially liberal policies, including the introduction of civil partnerships for gays and lesbians, the end of the ban on gays in Britain's armed forces, and the semi-legalization of marijuana. Blair also sought to reform the House of Lords, reducing the number of hereditary peers. Although under his leadership, his party has supported centrist, pro-market policies, including a freeze on the income tax, Blair supported major increases in spending in British social services, including universal healthcare system and public education.
