Worth an afternoon trip! - 3 hour whale watching tour, we saw lots of whales and the captain knew exactly where to go! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and advised us on the best places to look/stand on the boat! It was around 1 hour ride out to where the whales were and it did get cold so dress for the weather 🌦️

Fantastic family experience - nothing compares to it! - We (family of 5) had a wonderful time on this tour. It was a privilege to be that close to the pair of humpback whales that our captain (JJ) maneuvered us close to. Our onboard guide, Isaiah, provided excellent commentary throughout the tour, and he helpfully answered everyone's questions about what we were experiencing. Tips/insights: It takes about one hour to get out to the whale-watching location, and likewise to return to Monterey; so you'll have roughly an hour on-station to see the whales. The weather was a little rough the day we went; maybe that was an unusual circumstance, but I would nevertheless recommend wearing waterproof clothing. (Our boat had a cabin that some passengers took refuge in, but it was pretty tight quarters.) Isaiah and the third member of the team, Kevin, helped a passenger who was seasick. Again, maybe the weather we experienced was unusual, but I would recommend bringing something to combat seasickness if you think you might be prone to it. All in all it was a great experience, due in no small measure to Capt. JJ, Isaiah, and Kevin. I will do whale-watching again the next time I'm in Monterey, and it will be with Discovery Whale Watch.

Whale Watcher from Wales - Spectacular! This truly was the trip of a lifetime. We came across a pod of orcas enjoying an afternoon feast. The ocean was a full on food festival with dozens of orcas feeding, leaping out of the water and getting frisky! Sophia our tour guide was so informative about their behaviours and the marine life of Monterey Bay. An amazing afternoon!

Tour Canceled Last Minute - About an hour before the adventure, we received a phone call that the event was canceled due to weather conditions. We were shocked because the weather was beautiful -- sunny with blue skies. Since we were at the wharf, we noticed other whale watching companies were giving tours. We suspect the real reason is that they did not have enough passengers, but we'll never know.
