Hornblower’s got the Blues (Whales)!

Blue Whale Watching Season is in full swing in San Diego. Following our kickoff orientation with expert naturalists from the San Diego Natural History Museum, guests on the Adventure Hornblower were treated to sighting of 3 Blue Whales on our first day of Summer Whale Watching Cruises! Two of the blues were probably a mother with her calf. While Blue Whales are the highlight of our Summer Whale Watching cruises, we also spotted several pods of about 25 Common Dolphins. Other sea life included a Harbor Seal, several California Sea Lions resting on navigation buoys, and a Mola mola or Ocean Sunfish. The military exercises taking place offshore were also exciting to watch in between the wildlife sightings.

Hornblower’s Summer Whale Watching Cruises are available Fridays through Mondays through Labor Day! For a chance to see the magnificent Blue Whales, book your cruise at
