Blue whales, the largest mammal and possibly the largest animal to ever inhabit Earth, can be spotted swimming and feeding off the coast of California during the summer months. Join the San Diego Natural History Museum Whalers on a breathtaking experience on the open ocean to see these magnificent creatures aboard a large, comfortable yacht from Hornblower Cruises and Events.
The 4-hour tour includes live narration by experienced captains and the Museum Whalers, trained naturalists who accompany every cruise. You’ll stay cozy and comfortable with both indoor and outdoor seating, a snack bar featuring hot food and a full bar.
