Extended Blue Whale Trips
Running multiple times per week during the months of June and July, these special extended Blue Whale exploration tours are the very best opportunity in the United States to see the largest animal to ever live on our planet: The Blue Whale. The focus of these tours is to search for Blue Whales, wherever they may be, without the constraint of time! These leviathans are constantly moving around and searching for krill to feed on, and while we do see Blue Whales on our signature 2.5 hour whale watches during the summer, these special extended tours are as close to a sure thing that exists for Blue Whale sightings year in and year out in California! During June and July in 2021 we had a 100% success rate in finding blue whales on extended tours! If conditions permit, we will also explore the outer waters for any other species that may be around...last year we found orcas in July on an extended trip!
While we can't 100% guarantee you will see a Blue Whale on this tour, we DO guarantee you will see whales of some kind, with over a 95% chance to see Blue Whales.*
Average trip length will be about 8 hours**
*If we do not see whales of ANY kind during an extended Blue Whale tour, you will receive a voucher to come back on the house for any extended trip of your choice.
**The plan is for these tours to last 4-8 hours, depending on how far offshore the Blue Whales are, however if sea conditions get rough, the total trip time may be shortened substantially as long as we've already had quality time and sightings with Blue Whales.
