Rare False Killer Whales Make For Incredible Viewings On Whale Watching Cruises Weds March 12.
$15 Whale Watching Email Club Special For This Week and Next Week (March 13-23).


Extremely rare viewings of false killer whales on our whale watching cruises yesterday Weds March 12 haven’t been seen locally for over decade.  A group of 8 false killer whales were cruising off Laguna Beach on Wednesday.  Typically found in the open ocean and in more tropical waters they look very similar to a killer whale even in size.  The group of false killer whales were viewed cruising and even feeding on large white sea bass off Laguna beach.  A real added treat for our whale watchers onboard those cruises yesterday.  Along with false killer whales, gray whales were also viewed yesterday as well as huge pods of dolphin (one pod over 1000 was viewed).

Lets do a $15 whale watching cruise special for remainder of this week and weekend and all next week (March 13-March 22).  Great weather lots of whales and dolphin.  Just print out email and bring in day of cruise.  Your can reserve by calling 949-675-0551 or online at http://www.newportwhales.com/whale_watch_reservation_choice.html .
