Spectacular Whale Watching
Orange County Whale Watching for over 20 years with Newport Landing. Newport Landing provides multiple whale watching trips daily departing from the heart of Orange County. Newport Landing offers whale watching tours all year long. From December through April is the prime Grey Whale migration period. Newport Landing is ideally positioned to take advantage of the annual Grey whale migration along the Orange County coastline. Hundreds of Grey Whales travel along the Laguna Beach coastline and within minutes of Newport Harbor. Along with viewing Grey Whales you can expect to see dolphins, sea lions, and marine birds. Killer whales, sharks, and many other marine creatures may also be observed. From May - November we view several other marine mammals, such as Blue Whales, Fin Whales, and Minke Whales. Along with whales you will get to see several types of dolphin, Sea Lions, and marine birds.
