Didn't think we were going to see many whales, but towards the middle/end of the ride, more whales became visible. Dolphins were also really cool.

We saw many (40-50) grey whales as advertised. The weather was cooperative and the ship's crew were very knowlegable and accommodating. The facilities were clean and well cared for both onshore and off. We would go again without hesitating.

This was a great way to see the Monterey coastline as well as the wildlife of the bay. The narrator on the boat ride is full of information, facts, and tidbits. Appropriate for adults and children. Do bring a scarf/hat, when the breeze picks up it gets chilly.

Our time on the PRINCESS exceeded our expectations. We saw lots of whales including four whales which breached halfway out of the water. The 200-300 dolphins were spectacular! It was a trip that we will always remember with delight.
