You’ll have the best seat in the house!

Whale Watching Tour

Tour our local harbor and the Pacific coastline while searching for whales and other sea life. Experienced captains offer comprehensive narration and information about whale migration. Whale watching season for Gray whales spans from December to May. Humpback and Blue whales migrate during the summer months from June to late September. This is an off-site activity.
