Hornblower Cruises San Diego Whale & Dolphin Watching Adventures are educational cruises and visual experiences for people who love sea birds, dolphins, sea lions, and whales. Highlights of the cruise include pods of hundreds of dolphins plus an informative harbor cruise around the north end of the Big Bay.

Enjoy a memorable three-and-a-half-hour whale-watching cruise on San Diego's largest and fastest whale watching yachts, offering the most comfortable climate-controlled boats in Southern California. If the tour doesn't see whales, all guests are give a "Whale Check" to come back for free.

Note:* The whale watching vessel cruises in the open ocean. Our yacht is the most comfortable yacht in San Diego, due to stabilizers that greatly reduce the yacht's motions. Still, if seasickness is a concern, getting fresh air on the sun deck or taking over-the-counter anti-seasickness medicine prior to your cruise might help.

*No outside food or beverage is allowed on board the yacht. For your convenience, we have a fully stocked snack bar and full beverage bar available to purchase on board.
