Giant blue whales were once considered quite rare off Newport Beach in southern California, but over the last five years this has changed dramatically with hundreds-thousands of giant blue whales spotted each year. In fact in 2012 over 900 giant blue whales were viewed from May-August with multiple blue whales sighted during one whale watching cruise, a regular occurrence. These giants of the sea reach lengths of 100 feet and are the largest of all animals. Unlike the grey whales (about half the size of the blue whale) for which southern California whale watching is known for, these giants are less shy and provide great viewing opportunities. Along with viewing these giants, the second largest whale in the world, the finback whale has also taken to the waters of southern California during the same months as the blue whales. Along with whales, giant pods of common and bottlenose dolphin are also very common with pods numbering a thousand of more dolphins quite likely. These dolphins come within arm's reach as they play alongside the whale watching ship. Viewings are so good that there is a 96% viewing success rate and if nothing is viewed a free pass for another whale watching cruise. Join Newport Landing Whale Watching on one of the several whale watching cruises offered daily. Whales are regularly sighted just outside the mouth of Newport Bay which is within 10 minutes from the departure. Each cruise is 2 ½ hours in length.
Newport Landing's primary whale watching ship is 65 feet in length with a large upstairs sundeck, wrap around outside seating, snack bar with food and beverages, indoor seating with large windows. Their whale watching ship was designed just for viewing marine life. Plenty of other amenities guartees to make for a very comfortable and exciting trip. Captains & crews have backgrounds in marine biology and are incredible knowledgeable providing details on marine creatures, environment, and eco systems.
