Hornblower Cruises & Events’ San Diego port is launching their seasonal Blue Whale Watching Adventures cruises on June 27, with an end date of September 6, 2015.
Departing from the convenient location of Embarcadero downtown San Diego at 970 North Harbor Drive, daily tours start boarding at 8:45 a.m. for the 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. daily excursion. Price is $75. per person ($40 for children 4-12), with the addition of tax, service charge and landing fee. For a limited time, Hornblower Cruises & Events is featuring a “Splash Sale,” which is priced at $99. for two people.
This specialty cruise is designed for those that love whales, dolphins, sea lions and sea birds. After boarding, guests will speed out to sea on one of the fleet’s comfortable yachts and pass barking sea lions and pods of leaping dolphins in search of the legendary blue whales. During the four-hour tour, passengers will be treated to a live narration by an experienced captain and an on-board naturalist (from the San Diego Natural History Museum). The accommodations are designed so that guests can enjoy both the outdoor and indoor environments along with the amenities of a snack bar, featuring hot food, a full bar and souvenirs.
