About this activity

Excited to take to the beautiful California waters on a series of cruises and whale watching tours to excite the whole family? Well, that's exactly what Harbor Breeze Cruises offer!

Harbor Breeze Cruises has been providing incredible and unforgettable whale watching tours for families, as well as charter cruises, for over 18 years in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas - which means you're not only in for a great time but you're also in very safe hands!

The experienced Captains with Harbor Breeze offer a comprehensive narration about the characteristics of each cruise too, so when you're seeing those beautiful creatures with your own eyes, you can learn all about them too!

Harbor Breeze Cruises was founded back in 1990 by Danny Salas, and it's Danny’s passion and love of the ocean that makes these cruises to special.

Each Long Beach whale watching cruise with Harbor Breeze is conducted by a knowledgeable captain who has been expertly trained in not only manning your vessel but they also offer a fascinating comprehensive narration of the marine life that you see!

Family members of all ages will love their one these of a kind adventures out on the stunning California waters!. Harbor Breeze Cruises proudly offer morning Long Beach whale watching tours for those early birds in the family who just can’t wait to get out and spot Long Beach’s spectacular sea mammals.

If you're not an early riser, then check out the afternoon departure cruises for Long Beach whale watching which can take you to spot wildlife just as stunning!. No matter the tour you choose, Harbor Breeze Cruises guarantee a fun-filled journey you’ll remember for years to come!

On these whale watching tours you can view some of the largest mammals on the planet, from the magestic Blue Whale, to the beautiful Killer Whales (have you ever seen an orca in the wild?) and when the glorious humpack - maybe they will pop out the water and say hello to you! 

It's not only whales you might be able to spot during your fun whale watching tour. You might see playful dolphins swim alongside the boat, or sealions bathing in the sun!

Are you ready to enjoy the sparkling California waters and the amazing wildlife that call it home? So are we, so let's go!
