This is our 2nd whale watching trip with Princess Monterey Whale Watching. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable, pleasant and safety-oriented. The naturalist was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. And the sea life was incredible! We saw lots and lots of whales! Can't wait to go again!

We were so very lucky on this trip as not only did we see loads of beautiful humpback whales, but we had the pleasure of a very beautiful encounter with two male Orcas, who spent a lot of time swimming around the area of the boat. We were literally awe struck. The crew was really nice and very informative. I can recommend this trip without a doubt. We loved it!!! Thank you very much for a great day.

Whale watching success

Our hope was to see whales...and we did! The weather was grey and cool, but that didn't keep the 12 or so whales we saw from our view. They came up to the surface several times, breached 3 times and gave us much to look at. The Princess Monterey itself was easy to find, well run, clean and safe. The Naturalist on board was enthusiastic and shared a lot of knowledge of sea life beyond the whales. Overall a great afternoon. Could have spent a lot more time watching the whales, but we only signed up for a 3 hour cruise - next time we'll opt for more time on the water.

We've taken this tour twice and seen whales both times. This time there were hunchbacks breaching, also seagulls chasing sea otters for their food. This is a great location to see marine life and the naturalist did a great job.

Wonderful Whale Watching.

Fishermans Wharf at 8:30 is a chilly place to be but several miles out on a grey overcast Pacific Ocean is even colder, it's a good job that the views of nature you get aboard the Princess warms your heart and soul. We ploughed relentlessly for an hour through slate grey most and waves until we reached the area that humpbacks had been spotted and then the clouds blinked open and ethereal silver light washed the waves. Humpback whales, seal ions and dolphins all came out to play and for 45 minutes we got as close as any sensible person would want. I would thoroughly recommend this trip. Wrap up warm and take your camera. It is a life affirming trip that brings you closer to nature than y

Must see! The whales were amazing. But take warm clothes even if it is very warm on the land.
