Harbor Breeze Cruises & Whale Watching


Harbor Breeze Cruises has provided public whale watching cruises for the past 18 years. Our experienced crew along with educators from the Aquarium of the Pacific will guide you through the journey as we search for breathtaking marine mammals including whales and dolphins. All of our vessels including our state-of-the-art catamarans the Triumphant and Christopher are all eco-friendly and are low-emission.


During the Gray Whale season, typically from December through April, our knowledgeable staff will offer information about the characteristics of the Pacific Gray Whale and its annual migration from the Bering Sea in Alaska to Scammon's Lagoon in Baja California, Mexico.


During the Blue Whale season, typically from May through November, you can expect to be educated on the Blue Whales' characteristics, and other interesting facts.


Throughout the year along with Gray and Blue Whales you may also see Fin Whales, Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, and Killer Whales (Orcas). Other wildlife frequently spotted are Dolphins including Common, Bottlenose, Risso's, and Pacific White Sided.


Groups who have taken whale watching excursions with Harbor Breeze Cruises have found their experiences to be enjoyable and educational for all ages.


Comfortable accommodations aboard our ships includes lounge areas where you may enjoy a snack or drink provided by our galley service. The ships also have lavatories and expansive deck areas for viewing and photography.


Group reservations may be made over the phone, purchased on our website by credit card, and we accept purchase orders too. We advise you to make your group reservations as early as possible as dates begin to fill up rather rapidly as the migration season approaches.


A Harbor Breeze Cruises' whale watching trip is truly a memorable experience for all ages! Call for reservations or information. We'll be glad to hear from you, and we'll provide your group with the most comprehensive and informative whale watching cruise available. Come join the fun and excitement of viewing one of nature's most incredible mammals.
