I had a lovely time on the cruise. We saw two whales and 8-10 dolphins. The boat ride was beautiful and the captain was incredibly knowledgeable about the animals we saw. The trip is pretty much divided in 3 parts. 2-3 hours to Catalina, 2.5 hours...continued

I bought these tickets for my daughter and her family and here are her comments. I would just say everything was good except the guys smoking on the boat, I would have liked one more hr on the island and less time chasing whales.

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.
