Gone Whale Watching offers one of its kind ocean experience. These guys don't run a large cruise boat with lots of passengers and food service. Instead, they offer a small, fast boat that fits up to 6 passengers. It feels like a private charter that gets way closer to the action than any other company. This trip is 2.5-3 hours long. You will see dolphins, whales, sharks and other marine wildlife. Also, the captain is a certified drone operator. He will share all footage from the trip, so there is a chance you will get an epic video of you next to the whales!

The most incredible amazing 12hr day with Gone Whale Whatching in San Diego, CA. Orcas!!!♬ Paradise - Bazzi
Did the whale watching tour with Gone Whale Watching and Captain Michael at the end of November and it was amazing! The tour was small and personal (6 guests total) and Michael shared tons of interesting facts with us. We saw a good few whales and probably thousands of dolphins and got amazing views and shots while still maintaining a respectful distance to the animals. For us it was the perfect tourist activity but the other party was local so either way you’ll have a blast! If you are in the area I can 100% recommend! Parking is ample nearby too so it’s no hassle checking it out!
I recently went on a trip with Gone Whale Watching in San Diego and Maui. I have traveled to many places but this trip sits right at the top of my list. It was a 5 day expedition on the water and I was completely blown away with what we saw. Capt Dom and Erica were both professional, knowledgeable, friendly and a joy to be around. They completely exceeded my expectations for the trip and our cetacean findings were out of this world. We encountered a comp pod of 30 whales, multiple breaches, a lot of activity right next to our boat, false killer whales, spinner, spotted & bottlenose dolphins… I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. I highly recommend booking with Gone Whale Watching in San Diego and if you can make the trip to Maui you won’t regret it. I’ll definitely be going back on a yearly basis to continue to explore the ocean with their team. Thank you!!!
We had a great time even though we did not see any whales. Intimate, casual setting was nice to just impromptu spend 3+ hours on the water with my friend, checking out the San Diego coast line and the beautiful pacific (I’m on the Atlantic side so my first time seeing it!). Price was fair, so if you want to enjoy a day on the water but not spend $$$$ for a yacht, this is a great alternative. Weather was a bit chilly but I was okay in shorts and a blouse.
No matter if you’re a tourist or a San Diegan, a trip with Captain Dom and his crew with Gone Whale Watching is a must. We’ve been on two tours and got to see several different types of whales and to say we’ve seen hundreds of dolphins would be an understatement. Huge pods surrounded the boat! It was spectacular and a memory we will always cherish with our granddaughter. One of THE best tours we’ve ever been on. You just can’t capture the moment on one of the big tours with hundreds of other people like you can with the intimate setting of Gone Whale Watching.
We had an amazing time whale watching in San Diego! This tour was a small group of us and the boat was comfortable. Captain Michael was very kind and informative! We got to see a pod of dolphins that played alongside the boat. Even though fog conditions weren’t promising and made our options very limited, Michael still managed to find us a humpback whale! It was amazing to be so close to such beautiful creatures in the wild. It was an incredible experience, and I highly recommend it!
