Our purpose at San Diego Whale Watch is simple: to help educate our local community and visitors from around the world about our amazing marine ecosystem. We began as the first year-round whale watching company on the San Diego coast, with the mission of bringing people and the oceanic wildlife together throughout the year. The residents of Southern California are familiar with the Gray Whale migration that can be witnessed here during the winter months. Very few are aware of visitations from Blue Whales, the largest animals on the planet, during the summertime! Our goal is to give people the opportunity to see and learn about these gentle giants (and all marine animals!) in their natural habitat, year-round!
The Privateer spent her early years in Provincetown, MA (the tip of Cape Cod), as the first whale watching boat in New England! Originally, she was used as a sport fishing vessel; however, the fishermen spent more time marveling at whales and began focusing on them instead. And so, her days as a whale watching boat began! After 10 years in Provincetown, The Privateer moved to Gloucester, MA and provided 28 years of magnificent whale watching memories on the east coast until making the move toward warmer weather. In May 2011, she made the 4-week voyage down along The Atlantic and through the Panama Canal toward The Pacific Ocean and more specifically, to sunny San Diego. With an enormous platform, she provides an enjoyable, smooth ride on The Pacific. The Privateer has roomy, outdoor seating and open viewing spaces on the upper and lower decks, along with indoor seating. She is equipped with state-of-the-art electronics and is Coast Guard inspected for your safety. Join us on The Privateer for a once in a lifetime whale watching experience!
