Beautiful morning watching whales and dolphins

We had a great time on the ocean. We saw several groups of humpback whales up close as well as dolfins. Sun, blue skies and an ocean as calm as a mirror. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect trip

The whale watching experience was amazing! We saw so many whales, dolphins and sea lions. I would definitely recommend to anyone in the Monterey area.

We saw whales on the way out and on the way in. Seals, otters and 100's of dolphins-very cool alongside the boat

Check off the bucket list! Would do it again and bring my friends.

Actually saw whales!

Watched in early august. First time I actually saw whales on a watch. These guys know where to look. I would say that the price hike on weekends is ridiculous.

This is a very professional organisation operating whale watching cruises. The trip was amazing with lots of sightings and we had a commentary from a very knowledgeable lady throughout the trip.

The tour guide was highly enthusiastic and informative, not only about whales, but most of the marine life we came across.

We really enjoyed the trip.

It was a foggy morning and I was worried we wouldn't see anything. But we did! In the habour there are seals, sea lions and sea otters as well as lots of gulls and sea birds of course. We followed the coast towards a point where there was briefly a couple of whales feeding. Unfortunately they were on the other side of the boat and we didn't see them and the guide wasn't very clear about where to look. We then turned back and actually there were several whales feeding in the bay (not all that common I hear but they had been for a that week we were there). We saw a group of 4 whales and then another duo came in. They were feeding in many different ways so we saw mouths, pectoral fins and tails - what a wonderful sight. One group of whales you could guess where they would come up by the sea lions! That was helpful as a guide but the groups were feeding a large amount so we had regular and fairly long sightings of them. It was such a fantastic time. I'd love to go again and would recommend it to anyone.

Fantastic first hout of the trip, with Whales right and left around the boat. We've seen Whales before, but the sheer amount of Whales was amazing!
