Which Whale Viewing Tours to Avoid or Use.


We would like to go on a whale watching tour from Newport Beach but I have heard some reviews say that its not good for the whales I've heard that some boat captains work together to surround any whales they find, this does not sound good to me at all. I've also heard that some are more of a booze cruise than a educational tour.

I am wondering if any tours are definitely ones to avoid and if there are any that truly look after the environment and wildlife.

I appreciate your help, thank you.

Flip a coin between Davey's Locker and Newport Landing.

They are practically next to each other and both do a fine job.

Booze cruises to me offer a set price with unlimited alcohol. I have never heard of a whale watching trip offering unlimited alcohol, it you see one, stay away!
