Aboard our whale watching tour off the San Diego coast last Friday, passengers were treated to a sighting of False Killer Whales. Identified by our onboard naturalist, False Killer Whales are similar in appearance to their cousins the Orca. They are more commonly seen in warmer, tropical waters, but a specific pod of 30-40 False Killer Whales has been making periodic spring visits to Southern California since 2014, providing a once-in-a-lifetime encounter for anyone lucky enough to see them.

As far as years go, you could do worse than 1915. In that year, Frank Sinatra was born, Einstein explained gravity, a postage stamp cost two cents and the U.S. still had yet to fight in a world war. And in May of 1915, a sixteen-vessel fleet that would become Flagship Cruises & Events began offering water transportation and 50-cent harbor tours on San Diego Bay. Today as Flagship celebrates our 105th anniversary, let's take a look at what life was like in San Diego back in 1915.

While San Diego locals and visitors to San Diego can enjoy year-round leisurely cruises around the San Diego Bay, the world’s longest migration of grey whales only happens December through April. These magnificent mammals begin their yearly migration in early October and have been spotted in San Diego’s coastal waters a little earlier than usual this year.
