That's how you should hit the water. We were on the Mojo. The food was less than stellar, but the beers and view more than made up for it.

We went whale watching from Long Beach Harbor. 2.5 hours of great photo opportunities! The crew were well informed and welcoming and we saw Pacific white Dolphins as well as blue whales and grey whales. Then as we were on the way back to shore the sun was setting - fantastic trip and definitely worth it!

We did the 45 minute tour on 10/4/14. It was enjoyable. There is not as much to see as say in San Diego Harbor. We saw sea lions closeup and dolphins and seals off in the distance. Staff was knowledge and friendly. We downloaded 2 for 1 coupons from the Long Beach Tourist Bureau which made it an inexpensive and... More

Harbor Breeze Cruises's 45-minute Long Beach Harbor, narrated-tour was a breath & a blast. The light wind & blue sky on any Sunny Afternoon adds to the delightfulness of the day.

This is a very reasonably priced cruise for whale watching. Saw a couple of whales and a pod of dolphins. I compared what we saw during the cruise to the website and it was accurate. The boat is brand new and comfortable whether on top or down below. A highly recommended activity if you are in Long Beach. On a... More

My wife's family and I had the opportunity to go on the harbor cruise. I would highly recommend this activity for the fair weather members of your family. It's a great tour of the harbor and the captain gives a lot of interesting information about LA harbor. I have been in the charter business myself and can recognize a great... More

We had a truly remarkable time on the Wed Feb 12 afternoon cruise. We tracked a foursome of gray whales, spotted a humpback whale several times, and had a posse of a hundred or more dolphins playing in the boat's wake for some time. I thought $35 for a 2.5-hour cruise, which made memories for a lifetime, was well below... More

glad we did this - not a huge lengthy tour but enough to get an idea of what Long Beach Harbor is all about. $12 per person is a good value.
