On-board naturalist was very knowledgeable about wild life specific to Monterey Bay as well as wild life pass through the bay. We saw a lot of gray whales, dolphins, and seals (and a few sea otters) on this trip. The weather was great, the boat was in great shape, and the crew was very friendly and helpful.

We chose to upgrade and sit on the top deck so we could have the best view. The boat was comfortable and it was great to have a naturalist on board giving information.

We saw lots of dolphins - common and risso, and spent time watching 2 humpback whales! No breaching unfortunately, but we did see flukes.

Would definitely recommend, and would like to do again!

Captain found pod of Humpbacks with sea lions, lots of birds. Kept a respectful distance and we watched activity for a long time. Beautiful trip into the bay with tour along Carmel Bay and Pebble. Very enjoyable day.

The weather was perfect! We enjoyed seeing the variety of wildlife on the trip - otters, different types of dolphins, a wide variety of sea birds, and of course, whales. We saw Humpback whales on our trip and they were a hoot to watch! Having a commentator was an added benefit so we could know what we were looking at. There were 4 in our group and we all walked away very satisfied with the experience. We would book with this company again without hesitation.
