Always fun

I go on the Princess 2-3 times a year. I've taken others, but this boat is larger and more comfortable than the others. Almost always see whales and the narration is very good.

This was a great day we truly enjoyed ourselves , it's so surprising that whales are so close to us. The information we received from the crew was so informative. We had lots of fun, we are planning to do this again soon!

Thank you so much for this opportunity.

The mother humpback and her calf put on a fantastic display for us as did the dolphins.

Great whale-watching experience from 100-500 feet away, informative guide with lots of interesting commentary, boat was comfortable and seemed very well run, organized and friendly staff, all in all a great experience and well worth the money.

I felt very secure with the Princess Montery and the crew. I think I had a misconception of what I might encounter... Thinking whales would be quite close and numerous. Thanks to the knowledge and determination of the captan we did encounter a mother Humpback and its's calf (perfect on Mother's Day) . Mother Nature is hard to predict... And I believe this crew will give it their best to make the clients trip memorable!

These guys were so awesome-- a great experience-- very friendly from the dock to the boat. The crew was so informative and pleasant. I would recommend this group to anyone. They made sure we found whales and followed -- we got great photos!!!!

Better boat

Second time on this tour, last time was 18 months ago. This provider appears to have larger boats than the other companies; it is much more comfortable to sit inside as you go out to and return from the whale watching site. The guide provided more information than just "there is one at 3 o'clock." I was able to get many great images, thanks to the whales being curious and wanting to stay close to the boat.

Saw some Orcas, cold!

saw a pod of 4 Orcas, also some porpoises on the way back into harbor. We had a lucky day, and NOBODY on the entire boat got sick!!!! Was very cold on the ocean, this in late April when most of California was 80 F.

Clean boat, nice sized (100feet)

Very nice! Wonderful experience.

It is better to prepare a windbreaker or warm swrater. The sun of California is very strong and you are very easy to be sun burn.
