Adventurers will explore the nearby seas aboard the specialized Harbor Breeze Cruises whale-watching boat The Christopher to seek out  travelers suchas gray, fin, blue, and Minke whales, various dolphin species, sea lions, and a host of migratory sea birds.

Aquarium experts will be on board to answer questions and to talk about whale conservation issues and how to help these and other marine mammals.

The ocean adventure includes educational interpretation by an Aquarium of the Pacific marine expert as well as various hands-on learning activities for children of all ages, including Marine Mammal Biofact Discovery.

On board, guests will explore marine mammal artifacts, such as different types of whale bones and baleen.

Included in the adventure is a visit to the Aquarium of the Pacific to meet more than 11,000 ocean animals and to learn more about whales through the award-winning "Whales: Voices in the Sea" kiosk exhibit and the "Whales: A Journey with Giants" film.

The public can join the adventure by purchasing the Whale Combo Ticket, which includes Aquarium admission.
