Macaroni Kid's Whale Watching Oceanside Adventure

By Erika Veduccio April 18, 2018

Have you ever seen a pod of Dolphins swimming in the open ocean? 

This past weekend we had the pleasure of spending the morning aboard the a 50 foot one level vessel. The Boat is perfect for clear viewing of the Ocean. There are both covered and non covered areas and seating throughout the vessel. The boat has high sides which made it very comfortable to be aboard with a family. It was nice to not to worry the kids may fall into the water!  With multiple kids, this is where my mind wanders The water was calm and the boat went pretty slow. Our guide, Carla, was very knowledgeable. Each trip is narrated by an expert Captain, a certified naturalist who loves Whales and Dolphin just like you do. The tour was 2 hours, a perfect amount of time for a family. It was exciting to "be on the watch" for Humpback Whales, Fin Whales, Blue Whales and Great White Sharks! Oceanside Harbor is home to Minke Whales, 4 species of Dolphins, Sea Birds and Sea Lions. Each year, the Grey Whales migrate from Baja, California to Alaska and pass by Oceanside Harbor.

Check is located in front of the historic Light House in Oceanside Harbor.
