Whale Watching in San Diego

Check out these 5 Places to Whale Watch!

From December to April, you can find several ways to whale watch  in San Diego. You will have a blast watching from shore or from the deck of a day cruise ship as these magnificent creatures swim past you on their way south. Each year, over 20,000 gray whales make a 10,000 mile round-trip journey from Alaska to the lagoons of Baja California.

Once they reach their destination, the females give birth to their calves and usually spend several months there. The warm waters provide the perfect environment for the young calves to grow strong enough to make the trip back home.  People come from all over the San Diego area, from out-of-state, and even from other countries to experience this awe-inspiring sight.

There are several different ways to experience this magical act of nature, so we’ve listed a few:

1. Birch Aquarium at Scripps

2. Cabrillo National Monument

3. Torrey Pines State Reserve

4. Flagship Cruises & Events

5. Sail San Diego

A trip to San Diego doesn’t have to be all about the big attractions, although that is a huge part of what makes this place so great. You can also enjoy the entertainment that nature provides by watching whales as they migrate south in their quest for warmer waters between now and April.
