When you're on the Newport Legacy, sailing the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean, you feel alive and inspired.

Blue Whale Season is almost here! Don't miss out! The Blue Whale season starts in early summer. June through September we see hundreds of the largest animals swimming past our neck of the woods, and boy what a sight! Feeding on krill and swimming right off the LA coast. These magnificent creatures weigh in at nearly 400,000lbs and stretch to lengths of close to 100ft long! So anytime you want to go whale watching in Orange County during the year your chances of spotting whales are high!

You don't want to miss such spectacular sightings. Not only do we get to see blue whales, but we also see finback whales, minke whales, humpbacks, gray whales and more! There are also huge pods of common dolphin, Risso dolphin, and Bottlenose dolphin that swim around and play with the boat. We'd love to have you and your family onboard. We've got 3 cruise times daily! Watch as hundreds of gray whales migrate through our waters in the winter through spring, or see the happy sea lions sun bathing on the buoys.
