The annual "Giant Blue Whale Migration" brings hundreds of blue whales each summer to the waters off Newport Beach. Over 400 whales were viewed last summer 2020 . Giant blue whales were once considered quite rare off southern California, but over the last ten years this has changed dramatically with hundreds of giant blue whales spotted each summer. These giants of the sea reach lengths of up to 90 feet and are the largest of all animals. Along with viewing these giants view the second largest whale in the world, the finback whale which is often seen feeding in the same areas as the blue whales. Other whales encountered include humpback whales, and minke whales. Along with whales, giant pods of common and bottlenose dolphin are also very likely with pods numbering in the hundreds to over one thousand frequently viewed. These “mega” pods of dolphin are quite an amazing sight to witness with what seems like the whole ocean filled with jumping dolphin as far as you can see.

Just outside of Newport Bay is the beginning of one of the largest marine protected areas in southern California created to protect this rich ecosystem for future generations. The marine sanctuary covers over 15 miles stretching from Newport to Laguna Beach and provides a haven for all marine creatures including whales and dolphin. The marine reserve stretches along much of the Newport & Laguna Beach coastline and along with being a mecca for whale watching also offers some of the most beautiful coastline in Southern California.
