Our Services

Welcome aboard Newport Beach's newest, fastest, and most advanced whale watching boat. Imported from Ocean City, MD, she is the ultimate whale watching vessel. We limit our trips to 6 passenger(s) or less to provide the personal attention and comfort you deserve; private charters also available. Our new boat is extremely quiet, enabling us to stealthily approach and bring you a front row seat to these spectacular mammals without disturbing them. Our trips are 2-2.5 hours. Departing from beautiful Balboa Island in Newport Beach, and have close access to the coastal waters of Orange County, a super highway for whales and dolphins year round.
