Great Whale Watching

Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Right after I purchased our tickets online, I received an email with detailed information on directions, parking, when to arrive, what to bring, etc. Our whale watching cruise lasted for 2 1/2 hours and we saw several groups of humpback whales. From the time we arrived to when we left, every employee was friendly, courteous, informative, and very helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better whale watching company.

Whale Party!

We had an amazing tour, about 3 hours, and we travel about 30 minutes into sea and we found a spot with lots of whales and sea lions feasting on anchovies! Our tour guides said our tour was one of the most sightings they have experienced in a while! This tour was really worth it! The boat is comfortable, with clean toilets and option for inside or outside seating. They also sell some snacks and drinks in the boat. I will highly recommend this tour!

Great Tour!

Start off your day with a good breakfast to fill up your belly. Don’t bring binoculars because the boat brings you close. But do bring a nice camera with a nice lens to be sure you can get a nice shot of the whales. We saw a big feeding group of about 100 sea lions, 200 seagulls and about 6-10 whales. It was really awesome and something I’ll never forget. None of this would be possible without the great crew aboard the Princess Monterey! You won’t regret it!

Great Trip With Princess Monterey

We had a great trip with Princess Monterey. We saw a great show and the naturalist on board did a great job of explaining the details of the whale and wildlife behavior. The captain also was very adept at positioning the boat for viewing multiple surfacing of the whales and their activity. We also followed the advice of others about layering for weather and were glad we had warm clothing!
