This year’s Gray Whale migration has started, and the Gray Whales can be seen off the coast of Southern California via Harbor Breeze Cruises and the Aquarium of the Pacific for the next few months. You can catch up on details of this endangered whale in my write-up Whale Search: Aquarium of the Pacific Boat Excursion Finds Endangered Fin and Migrating Gray Whales. These beautiful creatures will be traveling down to the quiet coves and bays in Baja California from now until the beginning of May. This is the perfect time to plan a whale watching cruise!
Harbor Breeze Cruises and Aquarium of the Pacific will be offering whale watches 7 days a week with 2 excursions Monday through Friday at noon and 3pm. The weekend they offer 3 excursions at 9am, noon and 3pm. Each excursion lasts roughly 2 1/2 hours and is a great way to experience some of the largest animals on earth. Besides the Gray Whales, there will be sightings of sea lions, Dolphins, Seals and possibly Orcas. It’s a great way to educate children and adults of the importance of the oceans biology and wild life with an exciting cruise to see the whales in their natural environment.
Harbor Breeze Cruises also offers daily narrated sightseeing harbor cruises and yacht charters. Group rates are available for 25 people of more. Adults are $45, Seniors 62+ are $30 and children 3 to 11 are free. After the cruise you and the family can make a day of it by dropping to the Aquarium of the Pacific to see the sea life displays and the Penguin exhibitions. The Aquarium of the Pacific is open to the public 9am to 6pm daily.
