For the first time ever, Hornblower Cruises & Events will embark on Blue Whale Watching Adventure Cruises this summer. In the last five years, the blue whale migration has grown in San Diego, with over a thousand whales being spotted in a single previous season. Passengers can now experience of the wonder of watching the largest mammal on earth as it migrates through the waters off the San Diego coast.
Hornblower Cruises & Events is offering a 4-hour Blue Whale Watching Adventure, with an opportunity to spot whales, sea lions, and dolphins, as well as all the sights of San Diego Bay. Included in the adventure is live narration on marine life by Hornblower’s experienced captains and volunteer naturalists from the San Diego Natural History Museum (theNat). Snack bars on board feature hot food, a full bar and souvenirs.
Hornblower Cruises’ experienced captains and crew know the best places to find whales and the tours head directly to the prime viewing areas off of San Diego’s coast. Blue whales migrate along the California coast from July through early September. They are often accompanied by the second largest whale, the finback. The size of the two whales makes for some great whale watching experiences. Also spotted is the California favorite, the humpback whale. Passengers will see massive whale tails, along with the whales feeding on huge quantities of krill.
