More Information


Newport Landing provides multiple whale watching trips daily departing from Newport Beach. Newport Landing is centrally located in Orange County and minutes from Los Angeles. Newport Landing offers whale watching tours all year. 

Year-round cruises view many varieties of whales including the giant blue whale (which attains lengths over 80 feet) during the summer/fall months, the gray whale migration during the traditional winter and spring months, several types of dolphin year-round, seals, and many other types of marine life. Each cruise is a unique experience; you may never know what you might encounter. A recent cruise encountered a huge pod of killer whales numbering over 30 killer whales including adults and young.

The waters surrounding Newport Harbor offer deep, nutrient-rich waters, which attract all types of marine creatures. The Laguna Beach coastline is just south of Newport Harbor and offers some of the most beautiful coastline in Southern California. The gray whales very commonly seen on these cruises seem to enjoy the beauty of the Laguna Beach coastline as well, with many whales spotted just a couple hundred yards off of the beach. Most of Newport Landing’s whale watching cruises take in the scenic backdrops of Laguna Beach, Newport Beach and Huntington Beach. Due to the geography of the Orange County coastline and the protection of Catalina Island, the ocean conditions are incredibly calm and comparable to a fresh water lake, allowing whale watchers to fully enjoy the amazing viewing experiences. .
