Firstly this review is not based on Chris's trip as we never got to experience that! After spending quite some time researching which company to use when whale watching in Monterey we chose this tour. This was mainly due to the small boat and believing that we would get closer to the whales if we were lucky enough to see any. We booked online from the uk and the communication was good about bringing warm clothes and arriving early.
We arrived on old fisherman wharf an hour before the 10am tour, we went to chris's who acknowledged are booking, then handed us a blue ticket and sent us over to another hut, Hegave no further explanation and just pointed and told us to "pay the man".
After paying the man it dawned on us we were not now going on Chris's trip we were now booked on the Princess whale watching tour!
We sought out te man from Chris's who simply said his boats had been chartered out for fishing trips by "big corporations" that this happens all the time, all the tour operators are friends and they all visit the same spots anyway ............... So much for his claims!
We don't expect a great deal on holiday but with only one day in monterey on our trip we felt very let down we had not been informed by Chris about this as we could have made our own alternate plans.
