This 2 hour adventure is a prioritized whale watching trip! We will be looking for dolphins and whales from 1 to 8 miles from shore. If we are successful in that pursuit, the captain will also conduct a coastal tour.
This specialty trip involves a visit to Catalina Island, 26 miles across the sea from Newport Beach. Travel time to the island is about 1 hour. Along the way we will search and stop for whales and dolphins. Once at the island, our focus will be on spotting bald eagles, bison, and enjoying the natural beauty present on the island landscape. You are welcome to bring snorkeling gear if that activity is desired.
The boat will stop in Two Harbors where lunch is available to purchase at the West End Galley Cafe. Our stay at Two Harbors can be simply a brief lunch break or could involve hiking opportunities. If conditions permit, we may visit the rugged and seldom seen backside of the Island, as well.
