Whale Watching Los Angeles Visitors

Information for Los Angeles Residents and Visitors

Approximately 35 minutes from downtown Los Angeles, Davey’s Locker has provided whale watching to Los Angeles area visitors for over 30 years from one of the closest natural harbors to the city of Los Angeles, in Newport Bay. Marine life flourishes in the pristine waters just outside the bay’s entrance. It is not uncommon to see giant blue whales and finback whales just outside the bay during the summer and fall months. Multiple gray whales are often seen in this same area during the winter and spring months while on their annual migration. >> Check out the Whale Watching Cruise Times & Pricing Info.
