Newport Landing Whale Watching has been offering whale watching cruises for over 20 years from Newport Bay. Our primary whale watching ship was built just for whale watching with unobstructed views from almost any location throughout the ship. Along with our great location and state of the art whale watching ship are staff is a really great group of people. Our captains are great at locating whales and dolphin and along with our ship crews and office staff will always do everything they can to make sure your trip is a success.

COVD-19 Protocols:

Due to the pandemic we are currently in, we are running all of our trips at reduced capacity and requiring face masks at all times. We promptly sanitize our boats before, during and after all of the trips to ensure everyone is as safe as possible when enjoying our tours. With the reduced capacities, it allows for social distance on board so please be mindful of everyone’s space when you are aboard one of our vessels. Thank you, stay safe!

Q When is the best time to see whales or dolphins?

We actually have sightings all year round! Throughout the year we have different species of whales that migrate through Newport Beach and dolphins are actually seen year round, normally on a daily basis! Typically from January through May we see Gray Whales, May to September we can see giant Blue Whales and April to November we often get the Humpback Whales in our area. We also have whales that can pop up at anytime throughout the year like; Fin Whales, Minke Whales, and the occasional sighting of Orcas.

Q Are sightings guaranteed?

Unfortunately, we can't guarantee sightings due to the fact these are wild animals and they don't stick to a schedule like us humans. If you are ever curious how our sightings are going, check out our website https://newportwhales.com/whalecount.html - Here you will find our updated whale and dolphin counts!

Q Can I go with just my family or friends as a private rental?

Yes! We have private rentals available for small or large groups. Give us a call and ask to speak to a private charter specialist.
