We had a blast on our 9:00am whale watching tour. We saw several whales, sea lions, dolphins and sea birds. We appreciated the heated indoor cabin and the snack bar's hot chocolate on board was great!

We had a great trip, friendly staff, took us right to the whales and dolphins. We were awe struck by what we saw on the trip. Make sure you reserve your spot the day before.

Really enjoyed the whole day! Very informative, not only whales but Monterey Bay also. We had several whale sightings. One whale even seemed to 'wave' at us. So much fun! Want to come back in December to see the Greys.

The humpback whales will still be in the area feeding in August. They will be the most reliable. Blue whales are also a possibility. The Orcas come and go as they feel like it throughout the year.

First thing in the morning is the best time when the whales are feeding.
