    Reaching lengths of nearly 100 feet, the blue whale is a sight to behold as it breaches the waters of the Pacific Ocean. During the summer and fall months, blue whales migrate from their southern tropical breeding grounds to the cooler waters of the North Pacific to feed on the rich supply of krill. Luckily, these pods of blue whales pass by San Diego as they travel thousands of miles north. From luxurious private charters to affordable group cruises, San Diego provides plenty of ways to get up close with these magnificent creatures. You may even be able to see them right from the beach in front of the hotel!
