Newport Landing Whale Watching has provided whale watching and dolphin cruises from Balboa/Newport Harbor for over 25 years. Year-round cruises encounter a variety of whales including the giant blue whale (which attains lengths of over 90 feet), grey whales, finback whales, minke whales, seals, several types of dolphin, and all sorts of other marine life. The combination of a knowledgeable, friendly crew and a variety of amenities make for a very comfortable and exciting trip. The Huntington Beach coastline offers some of the most beautiful coastline in Southern California; Gray whales, which are commonly seen on cruises, seem to enjoy this beauty as well since many are spotted just a couple hundred yards off of the Huntington Beach coastline. Newport Landing is located just 20 minutes from Downtown Huntington Beach.
