We truly loved learning about the dolphins and the other facts Captain Alex shared about the ocean and the different locations we were passing by in the harbor and bay.

Newport Landing Whale Watching Newport Beach
#46 of 278 Outdoor Activities in Orange County
It's fun for kids and adults alike and taking a 2 1/2 hour ocean cruise in Newport is a great way to spend your time with the added bonus of the occasional whale sighting and almost always playful dolphins!
Newport Landing whale watching was a fantastic trip, spacious clean boat with friendly knowledgeable staff, they worked hard to show us what we wanted to see but also to make sure we enjoyed our trip.

Jori's recommendation of breaking from the cliche evening boat tour and coupling the proposal together with the morning dolphin tour proved to be more amazing than words can describe.
A private tour with Captain Jori will certainly fulfill all of your dreams of dolphins and whales!
