Even if there hadn't been an abundance of sea life, whales included, it was a beautiful day on the water. The crew was personable and helpful. Want to go again.

The Hump Backs seemed to be putting on private showings all along our ride. Absolutely stunning.

I took my wife on a surprise whale watching cruise for our anniversary. I searched online for whale watching cruises and saw that the Princess Whale Watching had great reviews. We went on the cruise and had a great time. We got to see several whales, some even jumping out of the water!! It was amazing and would definitely go again.

This was money well spent. The crew was very accommodating from the get go....the workers at the stand, on the boat, etc. We definitely saw whales. The weather was awesome on our particular 3 hour tour...sunny, calm waters, and whales everywhere!!

Almost immediately the crew spotted two humpbacks, a mother and calf. For over an hour the young one jumped into the air (over 20 times) while the mother used her fin to splash the water to stun their prey. Crew got us close enough to watch while not pushing the limit.

We originally arrived late due to traffic but they quickly had us on the next boat without any hassle.

Not my first time out of Monterey but definitely the best.

Best encounter with mammals of the sea. I saw 9 whales. More than I ever expected. A dream come true. The crew was so helpful. They did everything in their power to make sure we experienced a true whale watching cruise. Thank you very much.

Enjoyed the cruise, we could see whales but far away,not that close to make good pictures with a normal camara but was not disappointed, well maybe a little because whales are not that close as I expected. Anyway would do such a cruise again.. maybe next time we have more luck.
