We’ve always wanted to do a whale watching tour and soo happy we went , we saw (12) humpback whales and a plethora of other species, the MC was so knowledgeable and entertaining, then my 2 year old got sick and the crew was right there to lend a hand. Highly recommended we’ll be back!

May through November San Diego is equipped with a cold-water up-welling system that brings especially nutrient-rich water up to the surface, drawing in hungry Blue Whales and Fin Whales. Although the production of food could attract them to our coast at any time, recent years have shown a spike in Blue whale and Fin whale encounters throughout the summer and fall. Blue Whales are the largest animals to have ever existed on the planet and we are lucky enough to see the healthiest population around the world. Only 1% of the human population will ever be able to say that they’ve seen a Blue Whale. That means that we can drastically increase your chances of becoming part of that small percent! Runner-up in size and well-known for being the fastest of the baleen whales is the mighty Fin Whale! They can also be spotted at any time, feeding along our deep-water banks.
Throughout the year various types of playful dolphins (Short-beaked and Long-beaked Common, Pacific Bottlenose, Rissos, and Pacific white-sided) are encountered on most trips with some pods numbering into the thousands! These dolphins will regularly seek out the boat on their own to greet you and to show their amazing acrobatic abilities. California sea lions, Ocean Sunfish (Mola mola), and a wide variety of sea birds also await you on every trip!

In the past we have had customers try to redeem discounts directly at vendor and it caused much confusion. The box office wasn’t able to honor EvolvedBookings.com exclusive pricing and customers that paid full price were upset they didn’t go through us.

One of our staff favorites is to go from downtown San Diego through Harbor Island to Liberty station via e-bikes. The bikes throttle up to 20mph so they are extremely fun and the views are amazing during the whole route. In addition Liberty Station is a fun local spot because it has an amazing selection of farm to table food and craft brews (and an indoor farmers market!) Liberty Station was converted from an old Naval Base.
