In January, February, and March the majestic gray whales migrate to Mexico and then back to Alaska.
With all the whale watching boats crowding the whales on the mainland more and more whales are moving to the waters off the Catalina coastline.
Here you have the opportunity to really enjoy these huge mammals in a natural setting in crystal clear waters.

This trip will depart from Avalon and travels to the windward side of the Island where most of the whales are located. On days when they are on the leeward side we will stay on that side of the Island. Whale watching is the most fun when you are close to the water and can experience them up close and personal as you will be able to do on our rafts.
Our Captains explain the habits and migration routes taken by these whales. They will also share their knowledge of the different species of dolphins that inhabit our local waters. You will need to dress warm as the air is nippy at that time of year even if the sun is out.
The trips will be canceled if it is raining or the sea conditions are too rough to make the trip comfortable.
Because larger individuals restrict the total number of passengers able to be included on the boat, "Comfort Seat" charges apply to persons weighing more than 250 pounds. The comfort seat rate for persons weighing 250 to 300 pounds is roughly an additional one-half seat; comfort seat charges for persons weighing more than 300 pounds is roughly one additional full seat. All persons weighing over 250 pounds must order the regular "Adult Internet" rate PLUS the appropriate "Comfort Seat" rate.
