whale-watching-school-field-trip-southern-california

Whale watching is a very popular option for public schools, private schools, and home-school groups. Newport Landing has been providing students with a unique whale watching experience for over 25 years. Each year over 400 school groups from Orange County and the greater Southern California region come out with Newport Landing on one of our whale watching cruises. Our whale watching experiences are not only for viewing over half dozen different types of whales, but also dolphins and other marine mammals. Students will get the chance to see a diverse marine eco system in a dynamic on-the-water learning environment.

Choose from multiple cruise times daily year round. Customized cruise times can be arranged depending on group size. Whale watching cruises are 2 ½ hours in length. Winter and spring months coincide with the famous Gray Whale Migration and summer and fall months the Giant Blue Whale Migration. Mega pods of dolphin and other whales are viewed year-round.

Our Whale Watching Experience includes:

• A field trip aboard one of our safe and insured vessels to potentially view whales, dolphins, sea lions, and marine birds.
• Knowledgeable crew members on board the vessel to give information and answer questions about the sightings, boat, and other related inquiries.
• Grade-level appropriate curriculum packets that can be printed and used to brief students on what they may be seeing on their trip and how it connects with what they are studying (see links below).
• Post trip activity sheets that connect with state standards, which can be printed and given to students as a follow up learning activity
