“Giant Blue Whale Watching Summer/Fall 2014. 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.
Address 309 Palm Street Suite A Newport Beach Ca 92661.
Times 10 am, 1 pm, 3:30 pm, & 6:00 pm daily. (2 1/2 hour whale watching cruise)
Price $16 Whale Watching Cruise Special
