La Jolla Whale Watching Tours

Grey Whales begin their annual migration from the coast of Alaska in October, bringing them past the beautiful shores of La Jolla from the end of November until the beginning of March. Join us for a chance to have an incredibly intimate experience with some of the most majestic mammals on the planet! 


ONLY AVAILABLE – from December 1st to March 1st.

Experience the grey whale migration from the seat of a kayak! Leaving the waters of the Arctic and heading south to the lagoons of Mexico, gray whales naturally migrate past La Jolla during the winter. This is a non-polluting, non-threatening, and intimate way to experience one of the most majestic mammals on the planet.

Your guides will lead the group about two miles out from shore, where you’ll stop at the best spots to view gray whales. Along the way you’ll learn interesting facts and history about the whales, other marine life, and the La Jolla Ecological Reserve. Keep in mind gray whales are wild animals. We see a large number of them during the season but cannot guarantee a sighting, although we often see dolphins, sea lions, harbor seals, and other marine life as well!
