Spend a full day enjoying the sights and sounds of the ocean on a unique whale-watching cruise. Upon departing at 8am from Newport Beach, you'll immediately begin to experience the excitement as you take in excellent views of whales and dolphins just outside Newport Harbor. For the next 3 1/2 hours, viewing opportunities continue as you cruise across the Catalina Channel. Keep your eyes peeled for blue whales, grey whales, humpback whales, finback whales, and many more. Several types of dolphin and other unique marine creatures may also greet you as you explore the wonders of the open sea. Upon reaching Catalina, you'll have 2.5 hours to wander the island. Enjoy a bite to eat or stop in to local shops before heading back to the boat to continue on your adventure. You'll then sail along the stunning Catalina Coast and head back across the channel on a course set for home.

Note: A $1 to $4 fuel surcharge may be in effect if marine diesel exceeds $3.50 per gallon. Upon reaching Catalina Island, the cruise stops at Two Harbors for a 2.5 hour drop-off.
