All Whales Migrate by San Diego!

Offshore from San Diego, we observe these majestic creatures in their natural habitat while heading south to the calving lagoons of Baja Mexico. During the north bound migration in the spring, we observe mother and calf pairs as well as mating pods.

San Diego Whale Watching Tours Since 1935

H&M LANDING has long been the pioneer in West Coast whale watching since 1953. Renowned for our wide range of adventure offerings, we have unsurpassed expertise in the approach and observation of marine wildlife in their natural environment. Unlike the San Diego Zoo, Sea World or the San Diego Wild Animal Park, we have the unique opportunity to observe nature as it was intended, unspoiled and on its own terms. Whether you are looking for a 3 Hour Local Trip or one of our longer expeditions to the seacoasts and lagoons of Baja California, H&M Landing will show you the way.

Whale Watching at H&M Landing

Gray Whale Census Update, Point Vicente Interpretive Center, 17 Dec. 2018 - message from our observers: three GRAY WHALES, and four ORCAS! Our first two GRAYS were adults that passed very close to shore. The third GRAY was a juvenile that came by close to shore late in the day and fluked. At 10am we spotted 4 KILLER WHALES about two miles offshore; at the same time (and in line with the KILLER WHALES) were PACIFIC WHITE-SIDED DOLPHIN within a mile of shore racing at top speed directly toward us. The KILLER WHALES ignored them and headed east, out of sight. A few hour later they re-entered our field of view, headed west. Our Gray Whale Census Director Alisa Schulman-Janiger (who had spotted them at our Census this morning) followed them in a small boat and identified them as the CA51s, the mammal-eating Bigg's transient killer whale family that we most frequently encounter off this area (aka "The Friendly Pod"). They came within a mile of shore! We spotted HUMPBACK WHALES on two different occasions, over five miles offshore. COMMON DOLPHIN were spread out everywhere. We also watched BOTTLENOSE DOLPHIN.
