    What to Expect
    This tour begins at our location in Oceanside, CA. Easy access from the parking lot to the check-in counter and onto the boat, so our vessel is wheelchair accessible. There are three tour times to choose from, either morning or afternoon: 12pm, 2:30pm or 5pm and each lasts approximately 2 hours.

    Each tour is narrated by an expert Captain, a certified naturalist who loves whales and dolphins just like you do.

    This US Coast Guard-inspected Catamaran is perfect for optimal viewing during the San Diego whale watching season. Your vessel is a new 50-foot Catamaran which is wheelchair accessible and on one level. We have both covered and non covered areas and seating throughout. See marine life from a unique perspective mere minutes away from Oceanside Harbor.

    Come out for an awe-inspiring adventure of dolphin and whale watching in Oceanside. The tours are great for families, couples, private parties and corporate events. Perfect for anyone and everyone who loves the ocean or the marine wildlife.

    I felt the tour was overbooked, not much seating. I would not do this particular trip again. The tours that go out from San Diego have better seating and the crew interacts with you.

    The crew was friendly and the boat was well maintained with plenty of places to sit with shade. We had a screaming child on board, but the mom and crew did the best they could to not let it make the rest of us want to make fish bait out of the poor baby. Probably not the best

    Had an amazing trip out. The team on the boat were on the lookout the whole time for wildlife. We briefly saw a Minkey Whale in the distance that submerged. Then we came across a pod of at least 200 dolphins which were incredible to watch. We followed them for at least 15
