Or, you just might see the incredible Humpback Whale flip breach the surface. No matter the time of day or the season, creatures of the sea are never far from view, from orcas to fin whales, minke whales to dolphins, and so much more.

Each Long Beach whale watching cruise is conducted by a knowledgeable captain expertly trained in manning your vessel while also providing comprehensive narration of the marine life you see. Individuals of all ages will love the one of a kind adventure out on the water.
