Commentary hard to hear in parts of the boat. Length of trip about right. Quite expensive and up grade seating for top deck extra 20 dollars per person!

We saw between 15-20 Killer Whales. We’re very happy about that. I would give it 5 stars if we were positioned closer to the whales. It seems the other vessels were much closer to them than us. But the experience was great!

We definitely got to see some orcas and dolphins. The crew was very knowledgeable and informative to us passengers. Enjoyed the ride, and of course watching the orcas!! beautiful creatures.

This was our second time with Princess Monterey, and by far, our favorite crew. We saw plenty of wildlife but the boat crew also handles the water in a very professional manner. It got windy out there and the crew knew how to handle the waves so that the boat was a very smooth ride. Thank you for another great trip!

The heated cabin was a plus, especially since i went with my aging parents for whom anything below 60 F is too cold. I also happened to get seasick (I recommend Dramamine), and the staff was really kind and helpful. Nevertheless, we saw about 6 grey whales from various distances. One of the staff members provided insights into the whales behavior. It was very informative.
