What's included

  • Grab a seat aboard the two-story boat and scout out blue whales, finback whales, minke whales, dolphins, sea lions and other marine life; Newport Landing passengers have already spotted blue whales in the past few weeks. As you explore the coastline, you and your guest can each cool off with a soft drink, domestic beer, coffee, tea or glass of wine.
  • Or for $15 (regularly $36), get one boarding pass and one drink; this option is ideal for solo travelers and groups with an odd number of guests.

We saw whales!

The dock where the boat leaves is full of boardwalk fun - food, games, and shops. It was nice to walk around while waiting for the boat the leave.

Just the relaxation of sailing on the Pacific, watching all the people on the boat, and the hope and anticipation of seeing whales and dolphins. Everyone was so very polite and kind.

This trip was my 77th birthday gift. What a great way to celebrate a birthday. We will definitely return. Thanks, Travelzoo, for making this happen!
