Beautiful day and great ride out to see the whales. We saw a bunch of whales all around us. Worth the extra $20 to upgrade.

My husband and I really enjoyed this cruise. The weather was beautiful, and with the inside cabin available, the wind on the bay was not a problem. Hoping to spot whales, and then actually seeing some huge tails emerging from the water, was a very exciting and unique experience! The boat was clean, the crew very friendly, especially with encouraging passengers to wear life preservers if wanted, and the narrator seemed very knowledgable and focused.

An unforgettable whale watching trip

We took the 9 am tour on the Princess. I was a little bit concerned since it was getting quite foggy as we headed further out to sea. It turned out to be a great day to watch whales. We must have seen 8 or 9 humpbacks and countless number of sea lions and seals. I had taken a whale watching tour several years ago but it was nothing compared to this. It was the first whale watching tour for the kids and they were super excited to see these majestic animals right in front of their eyes. The staff on the tour were also knowledgeable and friendly. Overall it was a great experience and I'm sure something we'll be talking about for quite some time.

My sister was out visiting so, on the recommendation of some of my co workers, we went Whale Watching in Monterey. The staff were knowledgeable and knew exactly where the Whales would be. We saw 5 humpbacks and a pod of Dolphins. I highly recommend this to anyone who is a nature enthusiast.

Great Whale Watch

comfortable boat. Quick ride to the whales. Humpbacks put on a nice show close to the boat. Naturalist on board described the whales and other sea life that came into view. Hard to believe so many big whales are so close to shore.

I highly recommend this whale watch.

I mean we did see like 3 whales but me and my girl were so nautious from the 45 minute boat ride to get to Moss landing that we didn't truly enjoy it, we took medicine to help us out but it didn't work. If you don't get area stock it might be ok but if you do just stay away. It was torture being on the boat on the trip there and back

Benji was so nice and helpful. And the marine biologist woman was very informative. We saw several whales.
