Welcome to Balboa Island
THIS IS THE UNOFFICIAL - FUN - FUNKY - LOVING - MOSTLY HUMOUROUS - WEBSITE OF BALBOA ISLAND!! SINCE 1990
Welcome to Balboa Island...where the cats are numerous fat and lazy, the dogs are spoiled, the houses are quaint and enchanting, and the living is creative and carefree. You can spend your day walking around our beautiful boardwalk, boating, biking, shopping, or lounging.
Don’t be surprised when you can’t choose between mouth watering mandarin, authentic mexican, spicy italian, premium prime-rib, rack of lamb, or good ol’ broiled burgers. And as your fun-filled day comes to a close and you watch the sun gently set in glittering hues of orange and red.... .. . . . . . . .
“Giant Blue Whale Watching Summer/Fall 2013 . Enjoy $16 Whale Watching Special”
Giant blue whales were once considered quite rare off Newport Beach, but over the last five years this has changed dramatically with hundreds-thousands of giant blue whales spotted each year. Over 1100 giant blue whales were viewed from May-October with multiple blue whales sighted during one whale watching cruise, a regular occurrence. Along with viewing blue whales, finback whales (second largest whale) are also frequently viewed as well as the smaller minke whales. Humpback whales and even killer whales are also possible during the summer and fall months. Giant pods of common and bottlenose dolphin are also very common with mega pods numbering a thousand or more dolphins quite frequent as well and amazing to witness.
Join Newport Landing’s whale watching cruises offered multiple times daily from Balboa Penisula in Newport Beach and view the largest creatures on earth.

Times 10 am, 1 pm, 3:30 pm, & 6:00 pm daily. (2 1/2 hour whale watching cruise)
