    Bay Kayak Tour & Seaplane Whale Watching - 30 Minutes

    Start with a quick kayak lesson to learn how to paddle, steer, and maneuver your boat. Then take a beautiful kayak tour across the San Diego Bay. From there you will meet your seaplane and takeoff! View La Jolla’s picturesque coastline and the majestic cliffs rising above Black’s Beach as you soar over the Glider Port at the Torrey Pines Golf Course. On this flight you’ll be seeking out the great Blue Whale - the largest mammal on the planet Earth. Adult Blue Whales can grow to more than 100’ long and weigh over 150 tons. December to April each winter they take part in their annual migration just off the coast of San Diego travelling south from Alaska, past San Diego, on the way to give birth to their new calves in the warm bays and lagoons of Baja California. The new whale babies along with their moms and dads head back north mid winter and early spring to spend the summer months feeding in Alaska. While in flight, it is common to see pods of playful dolphins, slap-happy seals, or barking sea lions. With the right conditions (clear water and small surf) you could see dozens of young leopard sharks in the waters near the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club. After your seaplane flight, you’ll have additional time in the kayak until you find your way back to the beach. Enjoy this kayak and aerial tour and catch a glimpse of these majestic creatures.
