Whale Watching:
Between December and April the gray whale travels approximately 6,000 miles along the North American coast, from the cold waters of the Arctic to the warmer waters of Baja California. There, they give birth to their young and prepare them for the return migration to the north. As the gray whales head to the Arctic, the young calves are often seen swimming alongside their mothers. See these majestic marine mammals on a morning or afternoon whale-watching tour from San Diego. Make your own way to Navy Pier to board your boat, a sturdy and well-equipped vessel with both indoor and outdoor seating areas. Head out on the waters of the Pacific Ocean with your expert crew who provides informative commentary about the marine life that you may encounter, including different species of dolphins, seabirds, sea lions, seals and — if all goes according to plan — gray whales. Choose from a morning or afternoon tour that works with your schedule. At the end of your 3.5-hour tour, your captain returns you to Navy Pier. Guarantee: Viewing whales in the wild is a breathtaking experience, however mother nature can be unpredictable. If whales are not sighted during your tour, you'll receive a 'whale check' for another complimentary whale-watching or harbor tour.

Patriot Jet Boat Ride:

Make your own way to the San Diego waterfront to meet your jet boat for your adrenaline-fueled ride. At check in, you are provided with a waterproof poncho and plastic bag that helps to keep your clothing and any valuables dry. Named the Patriot and painted with vibrant American flag imagery, your jet boat boasts 1,400-horsepower engines for a turbo-charged ride. Hold tight as your expert captain puts the high-powered ocean-going vessel into gear. Zip past the USS Midway, under the iconic Coronado Bridge and around San Diego Bay, reaching speeds of up to 40 nautical mph (64 kph). A pumping soundtrack of high-energy music plays as your boat tears through the waters of the bay. Scream with delight as your captain executes tricky maneuvers such as 360-degree spins and power slides. During your 30-minute tour, admire San Diego’s city skyline and waterfront attractions like Seaport Village, the Embarcadero and Coronado Island, and then return to the departure point. Before leaving, check out the souvenir photos and purchase any that you like.
