Hornblower San Diego Whale Watching Cruise

Make your choice to go whale watching on the fastest, largest and most comfortable ship in San Diego. LIVE narration is performed by our experienced captain and trained naturalists, the "Whalers" from the San Diego Natural History Museum.

What's Included:
•3.5-hour whale watching excursion in San Diego
•Opportunity to spot whales, sea lions, dolphins and harbor seals
•An exclusive look at local environmental efforts
•Professional live narration on marine life from our expert captains and whalers from the San Diego Natural History Museum (theNAT)
•Snack bars featuring hot food, full bar and souvenirs
•Climate-controlled indoor seating
•Views of famous San Diego landmarks

NOTE: The whale watching vessel does cruise in the open ocean. Our yacht is the most comfortable yacht in San Diego, due to stabilizers that greatly reduce the yacht's motion. 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.
