LA Waterfront Cruises is LA's premiere whale watching company, offers daily cruises to search for these fantastic creatures. Our courteous, experienced crew and knowledgeable Aquarium of the Pacific marine mammal educators will take you on an exciting adventure to search for awe-inspiring marine life.

LA Waterfront Cruises vessels are the newest, most environmentally friendly vessels in the area. Our state of the art, luxury, custom built catamarans with stadium seating offer exceptional viewing. The ultra-quiet, low
emission engines means whales and their marine environment are not harmed or disturbed.

Whale watching tours are available daily. Our exceptional tours have no hidden fees. Join us for the adventure of a lifetime!

Typically December - May our 2 to 2 ½ hour Gray Whale tours observe the annual migration past Southern California's coastline as they travel from Alaska's Bering and Chukchi Seas to Baja, Mexico. June - November the blue whales tend to be off the coast.  These whales are the largest animal the world has ever seen!  Year-round we may also see orcas, humpback whales, minke whales and fin whales, among other marine life.

This fantastic adventure is exciting for all ages. Every trip includes a knowledgeable Aquarium of the Pacific marine mammal educator who will provide you with informative commentary and interesting facts about the
marine life found off our coast.
