Whale watching season with Hornblower Cruises is December through March, with about 28,000 gray whales passing by the San Diego coast. Whale watchers are treated to the awe-inspiring sight of these majestic giants while aboard a comfortable Hornblower whale watching yacht in southern California. Each three and a half-hour whale watching adventure is narrated by an experienced captain with information exclusively endorsed by the San Diego Natural History Museum. Other wildlife, such as sea lions, blue herons and three kinds of dolphins put in appearances.
The Hornblower Cruises departs and arrives at the San Diego Bay in the Columbia District in Downtown San Diego just a short stroll from Downtown San Deigo Condo home owners in The Grande, Electra and Treo.
