Had lot of fun watching the whales, dolphins and sea lions. The whales were huge and it was fun watchin sea lions playing with the whales. The best was seeing hundreds of dolphins swimming along the ship.

Saw lots of WHALES

The trip was rewarded with lots of whale sightings, and took many memorable pic's. The ocean had swells that did not bother us much. When we reached our whale-site, we realized that we could have taken the whale watch tour from Moss Beach, and the boat ride would have been cut in half….our boat ride out was almost 1.5 hours. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the trip very much.

Even though it was stormy starting out and a few people got sea sick. We saw hundreds (probably close to a thousand) dolphins in a superpod, hundreds of sea lines and dozens of whales. More than we could have hoped for.

Awesome experience!

What a wonderful experience and another item checked off my Bucket List! Thanks to Jeff and a great crew we found a super pod of almost 1000 dolphins and later the big event ... 6 humpback whales all together! Our weather started out dreary but we were very well taken care of in the nice, dry cabin with clearing later. I would heartily recommend this company and whether you upgrade to the upper deck or are in the main deck, you will have the experience of a lifetime.

Fantastic Whale Watching Experience!

I paid the extra $20 to be on top which was well worth it. Many of our group were below and got sea-sick. The crew was very friendly and they did an excellent job describing the animals and sights that we were seeing. Explanations of their habits, etc. were provided as whales were diving down. Very much worth the money. Our day started out rainy but it was still very fun, and the sun came out as we came back into Monterey.

Well Worth the Money Spent
Wed, Oct 29, 14   10:00 AM Carchaser Female 60-69 Local Couple on a Date
FAVORABLE: The Whale Watching trip in itself was phenomenal. It was well worth the trip.

UNFAVORABLE:: The only thing that I did not like was the fact that I specifically purchased tickets for an afternoon trip at 1:30pm. I received an email the day prior letting me know that they were cancelling the afternoon trip on the 29th because of weather and asked us to join the morning group at 10:00am. I had already purchased the tickets so I really did not have a choice. We moved to the 10:00am trip. Upon our return we did notice that the next trip available was the same day at 1:30pm after they had already told us it had been cancelled……….
