Do not carry your shorts with you

If you are on a kayak, then you should go for a wet suit.

Slightly warm and wind-proof jacket

If you are on a San Diego whale watching cruise, then it is likely to be early Spring and it is possible that the weather maybe slightly cold during the day. So, why not get a jacket along with you. Your best bet is to keep yourself warm and dry. Thus, getting warm spray jacket is advisable. Ensure it is wind and water proof so that you don’t up getting pinched by the cold winds.


Glasses are a must accessory when you are out on the water, especially when you are thinking of spotting those black whales or humpback whales in the sea, sometimes many miles away from your cruise. Make sure, your sunglasses have polarization to keep your eyes safe from glare. Also ensure that they are arms tightened so that they stay well on your face. If possible you can get a neck strap too for perfect safety.

Nice pair of shoes

Sensible shoes are needed when you are on San Diego whale watching cruise. Hence your best option is flat pair of rubber sole sneakers to make sure that you don’t slip on the wet deck while moving around. You may even wear and keep a spare pair of socks so that if one gets drenched, then you can put another. Well, obviously you don’t want to roam around with wet feet.

So, light water and wind resistant jackets with sturdy closed toed sneakers with non-marking soles, track pants and a pair of goggles are recommended for you.
