Celebrating Dolphins in San Diego

Did you know that March is Dolphin Awareness Month? To celebrate, Hornblower San Diego is featuring a dolphin species every week.

Dolphins are toothed whales in the Delphinidae Family. Off the coast of San Diego, we regularly see four Dolphin Species- Long-Beaked Common Dolphins, Short- Beaked Common Dolphins, Common Bottlenose Dolphins and Pacific White-Sided Dolphins on our Whale & Dolphin Watching Adventure Cruises. More rarely we see Risso’s Dolphins and very rarely we spot Orcas/Killer Whales and False Killer Whales. Learn more about some of the dolphins we see below.
