Endangered Blue Whales Spotted near Coast of Long Beach

Endangered blue whales and fin whales are the largest whales on the planet and are being spotted in the waters off Long Beach.

The Aquarium of the Pacific and Harbor Breeze Cruises set sail for the chance to see these whales while learning recent findings about them and other whales. You can purchase tickets here and board a specialized high-speed, custom-built whale watching catamaran docked next to the Aquarium.

On this trip experts from the Aquarium’s blue whale photo ID program discuss recent findings about Southern California’s endangered blue whale population and reveal how we can identify individual whales spotted in local urban waters.

Blue whales is the largest animal on the planet and frequent Southern California’s urban ocean during the summer a busy and bustling place used intensely by both people and wildlife.
