Newport Landing provides multiple whale watching trips departing daily from Newport Beach. Newport Landing is centrally located in Orange County and minutes from Los Angeles. Newport Landing offers whale watching tours year around. December through April is the prime Grey Whale migration period. Newport Landing is ideally positioned to take advantage of the annual Grey whale migration, which brings hundreds of Grey Whales along the Laguna Beach coastline and within minutes of Newport Harbor. May through November brings warmer waters and the opportunity to view blue whales to 80 feet, finback whales, huge pods of dolphin that number in the thousands, seals, killer whales, sharks, and many other marine creatures. Newport Landing's whale watching cruises are a great experience for families, churches, and companies with a universal appeal to all ages. Join Newport Landing on one of our open to the general public cruises or privately charter one of our boats for just your group/company.
Newport Landing Whale Watching has been providing trips for over 20 years servicing thousands of patrons annually. Experience some of the best whale watching in Southern California with Newport Landing. Crew members provide full narration and are available for questions during your trip.
