The Orcas are Back in Southern California


Orcas are one of the most majestic creatures of the sea, and they back in the waters surrounding Southern California, giving families a spectacular sight to see. Yesterday, Harbor Breeze Cruises and the Aquarium of the Pacific spotted a family of five Orcas feeding on sea lions about 1 1/2 miles off Palos Verdes Pt. Vicente.

Why are the Orcas in our waters? Our coastline has had an explosion of sea lions recently that has caused the Orcas to frequent our waters.


Harbor Breeze Cruises has had the most success in Orca sightings in our area. Our family was lucky to have had a sighting of the Orcas last year while on a Harbor Breeze Cruises whale watching trip. Not only can families have the possibility of spotting the Orcas but also endangered fin whales, breaching humpback whales, pacific whitesided dolphins, bottle nose dolphins and more.


This is the perfect time to plan an after school whale watching excursion to give your children the unforgettable experience of a lifetime of getting to see Orcas in the waters off our beautiful Southern California coastline.

Harbor Breeze Cruises is located next to The Aquarium of the Pacific at 100 Aquarium Way in Long Beach. Reservations are available calling (562) 432-4900 or online at

Win it! Harbor Breeze Cruises is offering a giveaway of (4) tickets to go on a whale watching excursion. We will announce the winner in one week. Good luck!
