Whale Watching Cruise at the Annual Summit

ueda-whale-watchingJoin UEDA conference participants on a unique Whale Watching Cruise to kick off our 2017 Annual Summit! Experienced Captains will provide a comprehensive narration about the characteristics of Long Beach and its marine life as we travel along the coast on double-deck sightseeing vessels. Boats are US Coast Guard inspected and certified and have restroom facilities, ample seating, snack bar, and plenty of outside viewing room. The ship’s crew, featuring Aquarium of the Pacific educators, guide you on every voyage as we search for all types of awe-inspiring marine life. Throughout the year along with Gray and Blue Whales you may also see Fin Whales, Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, and Killer Whales (Orcas). Other wildlife frequently spotted off the coast of Long Beach are Dolphins including Common, Bottlenose, Risso’s, and Pacific White Sided. Complete trip will last 2.5-3 hours. The dock is less than 1/2 mile from the UEDA conference hotel. No transportation is provided, however it is a very nice walk to the pier from the Renaissance. Register here.
