California whale watching season for 2009-2010 has arrived. The annual migration of gray whales down the coast of California to Baja begins in December and lasts through April. You can catch a whale watching boat from just about any harbor along the California coast. San Diego, Oceanside, Dana Point Newport Beach and Long Beach harbors all offer daily whale watching tours. Boats range from converted fishing vessels to state of the art ships with underwater viewing pods. Competition for your whale watching dollar is fierce this year with many whale watching boats offering deep discounts. Quite a few whale watching boats offer guaranteed sightings however if you look at the fine print sightings include Dolphins, Porpoises and Sea Lions. Even if you don't spot a gray whale the tours are still fun and with prices cheaper than ever whale watching is an affordable way to spend the day. Southern California Whale Watching Tours.
