Excellent boat and crew.

My wife and I often go whale watching and have done so from California to Alaska. We have been on this tour before and it is always proffesional. Alot depends on luck when whale watching and these folks try hard to place you in the action. Highly recommended when in the Monterey area.

Whale watching cruise is worth it but the sea was pretty rough specially when the boat slowed down to spot the whales. I will not recommend this for people who are easily get sea sick otherwise it is highly recommended. It is worth the experience.

OVERALL GOOD WITH A FEW COMPLAINTS

OVERALL IT WAS AN ENJOYABLE TRIP. A FEW SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE UPGRADE YOUR SOUND SYSTEM !! WHILE ON FRONT OF BOAT THE NARRATION WAS EASY TO HEAR AND UNDERSTAND BUT WHILE ON THE REAR OF THE BOAT EVEN STANDING IN FRONT OF SINGLE SPEAKER THE CAPTAIN WAS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO HEAR AND/OR UNDERSTAND. WE DID SEE A COUPLE OF WHALES AND SOME DOLPHINS, ALTHOUGH I'M SURE EVERYONE WANTS TO SEE THE WHALES BREACHING WE DO UNDERSTAND THAT IS LUCK OF THE DRAW. A SECOND SUGGESTION WOULD BE TO MAYBE HAVE THE CREW INTERACT A LITTLE MORE WITH ALL THE PASSENGERS INSTEAD OF JUST THE ONES "FEEDING THE FISH" OFF THE REAR OF THE BOAT.

I took my 17 and 15 year old daughters, and my 11 year old son on this trip. All three had a great time. We spotted several whales and they were able to take a bunch of pictures. The crew was very knowledgeable and told us where to look and what to look for. I would recommend this trip for any family with teenage or younger kids.

Worth doing once

Dress warm, we went in July and it was cold but fortunately we had read other reviews and were dressed for it. The staff was friendly and informative. We saw a humpback whale (flipped its tail for us) and a blue whale on our 3 hour tour. No breeching or anything tremendously exciting but we had a bunch of teen-agers that thought it was pretty cool. The water was not particularly rough but we did have a couple of people get seasick. They perked right back up later in the afternoon once we were back on land though.

Although this is not a trip for those who get nauseous while travelling, it was exactly what it was billed as. We had a great time and my 7 year old grandaughter loved seeing the blue whales, sea lions, otters and other sea life. Definitely an experience worth having.
