Great but make sure you can tolerate the waves.

Great but make sure you can tolerate the waves. My girlfriend felt really uncomfortable and I have to take care of her during the whole tour.

We took relatives from England on a trip to see the whales. We all had a great trip. Followed a pod of whales for several miles.

This trip was fabulous. We saw gray whales as well as risso dolphins, a sea otter and her pup, and an albatross. I enjoyed every minute of it!

Whale-watching in Monterey Bay

Staff and crew are very friendly. Biologist onboard is very knowledgeable of marine life and was very quick to point out any seals/fish or points of interest on shore. Not having an upper deck from which to view was disappointing. Next time, I would look for an operator that uses a boat with upper deck. Overall, satisfactory.

Nice tour with lots of animal sightings

The tour was great; we saw thousands of smaller dolphins, some larger dolphins, many sea lions, many birds, but only a few whales from afar. I enjoyed the trip but my husband got sick and had to join the other few people on the back railing and stay there until the tour was over. I felt bad for him, but I would do another tour to hopefully see more whales and close up this time.

It was my first time whalewatching and was hoping to see something more like what's shown in your photo. Unfortunately the whales weren't cooperating so we were only able to see portions of their backs I assume, from a distance, and some blowing. I will definitely do it again though.

Whale Watching Tour That Delivers

Very clean and professional vessel and crew. We paid for a Whale watching cruise and that is what we got. We were able to see several whales and observe them for quite some time. Take a Dramamine if you think you will need it just to be safe.

My husband and I have been out whale watching many times. We have been taking the kids out for several years now and they have had the pleasure of sharing their experience with friends and classmates.
