Cabrillo Marine Aquarium

Featured Event

Complete Whalewatch
Sunday, March 29, 2014
8:30am - 12noon

Join us on a fun-filled adventure that begins with an entertaining educational slide show, presented by Larry Fukuhara, Programs Director at the Aquarium. Then board a whale watching boat in search of migrating Pacific gray whales.

We’ll start at the Aquarium at 8:30 a.m. with a presentation about the fascinating life of the Pacific gray whale. After the show, board a San Pedro whale watching boat for a 2-hour voyage in search of whales, dolphins, sea lions and birds.

The gray whale has one of the longest migrations of any mammal - 10,000 to 14,000 miles round trip - and makes its way right by our coastline. They spend their summers feeding in the nutrient-rich waters of Alaska and their winters in the warm protected lagoons off of Baja California. This year has been a record year for gray whale sightings!

Don’t miss your opportunity to enjoy this magnificent journey. This special excursion will conclude around 12 noon.

Reservations are required: 310-548-7562.
