Dana Point World Ocean Day Whale & Marine Life Tour

8 June, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Sunset Whale and Marine Life Cruise!
6:00 – 8:30 pm
Join our crew for an experience you will never forget! Your 2-1/2-hour adventure aboard the RV Sea Explorer, Ocean Institute’s 65’ research vessel, takes you miles beyond the Dana Point Harbor jetty in search of marine mammals such as migrating Blue whales; large schools of playful Dolphin; the impressive sunfish known as Mola; and sleek harbor seals and sea lions.

In addition, Ocean Institute’s professional naturalists are on hand to introduce you to the lifestyles of ocean creatures that frequent the waters off Dana Point. Hands-on activities include sorting through mud samples from the ocean floor, as well as trawling for Plankton.

Our cruises are safe and fun for the entire family, and everyone will learn something new about our oceans and the life within.

Price: $40 / person over 3 years old
