About Us

Harbor Breeze
Cruises & Whale Watching

Harbor Breeze Cruises has been providing public whale watching, world port, and charter cruises for over 18 years in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas. Our experienced Captains provide a comprehensive narration about the characteristics of each cruise.

Harbor Breeze Cruises was founded by Dan Salas in 1990. Danny’s love of the ocean began at a young age. He began working at the San Pedro docks at the early age of 12. His fondness of the sea grew stronger as he grew older and he pursued a career as a tug boat captain. After 10 years of working as a tug boat captain Danny was ready to set out on his own. He bought his first boat in 1994 and shortly thereafter gave his first tour. Danny has worked on perfecting his harbor cruise business. He’s hired experienced captains and staff to help his business excel. Today Harbor Breeze Cruises offers more whale watching tours than any other company in the area.


Harbor Breeze Cruises is located in Rainbow Harbor adjacent to the Aquarium of the Pacific at Dock #2.

We had so much fun on Saturday. You guys run a great operation. My daughters had so much fun, although they didn't see mermaid they were very happy to see the whales and dolphins!!

I am a Long Beach native and when we walked on to your boat I said to my mother, "Where has this boat been all my life?" What a great space for a party! Your glorious boat took all of my family and friends along with food, drink and music out into the waters of Long Beach Harbor for a once in a lifetime experience. I can't thank you enough! The crew did everything possible to make us happy. I didn't want it to end. I think you are Long Beach's best kept secret and now I'm spilling the beans.

Thank you for making the Christopher and the Caroline available to us today. The combination was perfect, and the staff friendly and professional. We had Congressman Lowenthal aboard and he was impressed. Thanks for being such a good partner.

The cruise went well on Saturday. The crew and Captain were helpful and were able to accommodate our customer requests. Thank you and everyone else at Harbor Breeze for all of the assistance.

We had a wonderful whale trip yesterday. The staff of Harbor Breeze and the Aquarium were very helpful and fun. My group was more than happy with the experience. The super pod of dolphins and the blue whales helped! And.... I'm just reading Facebook and seeing the posts from my members recommending your trips "as the best". Thank you for all your help with our group. As I tell them, "Let's have fun". We are looking forward to next year's grey whale season. We had such a good time. Again!!
