Overview

San Diego whale watching at its finest. With a maximum of six passengers, everyone gets a front row seat. Our fast expedition style boat gets you out to the whales before the crowds arrive, and we can stay longer. Winter whale watching from December through April we see the great migration of the Pacific Gray whales. Over 20,000 of these beautiful animals swim past our coast each winter, on their way to Mexico & then back up to their summer feeding grounds in Alaska. Spring and Summer bring the magnificent Blue Whales to our waters. These are the largest of the whales, and are truly a wonder to see! Fin whales and Humpbacks are also seen as well as our ever friendly dolphins. This is your charter, your way!

If you are ever visiting San Diego, our family would HIGHLY recommend using Offshore Blue Adventures to do your dolphin and whale watching excursion. Cici was great to work with in getting it booked and Lisa was our friendly guide determined to find those dolphins!...More

Didn't think I'd ever see a blue whale in my life. Thanks to Cici and Lisa we saw three blue whales, one fin whale, and a playful pod of dolphins right next to the water in our small boat. Thanks,guys!

Almost missed the tour due to a thunderstorm which is very rare in San Diego. Took the tour the next day and saw at least 10 whales and a dozen dolphins. Highlight was seeing three breaches by the whales. Breathtaking!
