    Whale Watching

    • If you're vacationing to Newport Beach from December through April, you may be able to spot a California Gray Whale migration on the Orange County coastline on a tour with Newport Landing Whale Watching. Tours include scenic boat rides and romantic views, even if no whales are visible. The company offers tours year round, since other sea life (such as sea lions) also make interesting tours.
