Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: From late December through mid-April, about 26,000 gray whales make the journey from the cold and volatile waters of the Arctic Sea to Baja California. From June until November, the mighty blue whales make their way into their feeding grounds, off the coast of southern California. Take a boat out of Mission bay to the Coronado Islands just across the Mexican border and enjoy your cruise viewing whales, dolphins, elephant seals and more. The tour boat serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. It can get very cold on the water, so bring a jacket.

“Great trip to the Coronados Islands”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

Once in a life time trip for a San Diegian. Not only saw the islands up close, but lots of whales, dolphins (4 kinds) and birds. Wonderful crew, good breakfast and lunch.

“Great whale and dolphin watching!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2012

Loved the naturalist's comments and learned a lot. Food was really good too, and plenty of it. The crew worked hard to get us near to whales and we saw lots of grays and fin whales.....and the dolphins were a blast! We will definitely be doing this again.
