Great trip, our deckhand Tristan was awesome and Captain Scott was great too, so many fish flopping on the deck, caught our limit quickly and kept fishing for those who didn't have their limit!

We saw a dozen or more whales and other sea life...Dolphins, Otters, Sea Lions. They have a groupon that's an amazing deal. We went out for over 2 hours and had a great time. The boat gets super close for those great shots!

We had booked a trip on Chris's Whale Watching boat but they had lost our reservation so we directed to Randy 's. The boat looks a little more rickety, but was absolutely fine and no one on board got the Monterey Flu! Our captain, Scotty was really helpful in advising where to look, and gave us interesting facts about other... More

You will catch fish....the son of the boat captain is really helpful. They do need to carry extra equipment to accommodate things that happen when fishing. One of our boys had a broken swivel, and basically sat on a boat for over 3 hours. When you are dealing with beginners you should plan for it.

Went out fishing last week and caught our limit of Rock Cod. They were all big and ended up with lots of great filets. The captin knew where to go ant it wasn't long before we had our limit. He then took us around the bay and we got a chance to see many whales.

This was our second time whale watching in Monterey. However, we made a choice to try a different tour company because we found this groupon. I suggest spending the $60 and going with another group. The boat is smaller and everyone gets soaked. There is no announcer highlighting aspects of the trip. Lastly, we saw no whales or any other... More

We checked Randy's website for how the fishing was going and where they were going. Salmon had already gone through. So, I talked the guys into going Rock Fishing. The boat had been coming home with full limits. We got a Groupon discount, and made our reservation for an early morning weekday trip. Water was calm, and the fish were... More

First ... we used a groupon which was a slammin deal! ($26/each) Second ... the whole crew was great. Nice, accommodating and full of fun facts about whales. We were fortunate enough to catch great weather (no sweatshirts needed) and got lots of great pictures of the same humpback whale who was down to put on a show! Overall ...an... More
