While visiting the San Diego area on your next vacation one of the “must do” things to add to your list of activities is one of the fantastic whale watching tours. These tours are perfect for anyone that has ever been interested in sea life. To watch these beautiful and spectacular mammals purging from the ocean is a vision you will remember for a lifetime.

The gray whales are predominant during the months of September through March. The blue whales are available for viewing from mid June through mid September. Generally these animals are found around Coronado Island and the 9 mile bank area. These spectacular animals can reach lengths of up to 52 feet and weigh in at 36 tons. The average life span for these whales is approximately 60 years. 

Many of these tours offer a variety of different packages throughout the year. Whether it is for a corporate event, spending a family day together, or even for the purpose of simply taking photos and videos of these tremendous giants of the sea, a whale watching tour is one of those things that should be on your list. You will also have the opportunity to learn all about whale conservation during this excursion from experts who have been involved in this industry for many, many years.
