Great whale watching tour

We saw almost a dozen Grey Whales on a beautiful day on this trip. Th naturalist was fantastic, keeping us informed about all the wildlife visible on our trip. Can't wait to go again when the Humpbacks and Blues are visiting Monterey Bay.

Our group really enjoyed our cruise. The guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Make sure to bring warm clothes though! It can get very chilly out there. We saw otters, sea lions, dolphins, gray whales, lots of sea birds. Very fun!

Not worth the money

It was quite far from the experience promised and expected - it's not much more than mass processing and a couple of tailfins from afar. Worst part of the whole thing was the absolutely annoying, so called marine biologist, who wasted our time with a load of nonsensical, repetitive sentences, uttered with a piercing voice and on an intellectual level that might be appropriate for retards, not for mentally healthy people. It could have been just a nice trip on a boat on a lovely, sunny morning, with whales somewhere in the same ocean as you, and some insights into marine biology, but it wasn't and overall, it was way too expensive.

Very good service and communication, the boat is excellent and confortable. Very kind personnel whit explanations during all the trip around Monterey Bay.

You do not expect to see the whales as close as in the photos of the leaflet.

Not a bad day

We saw some whales and the captain did his best to try to get close for pictures. There is no marine biologist or anything like that as far as I could tell. It would have been nice to have someone explain and give some background.
