Half-Day Whale Watching Tour From Monterey

Take an exciting ocean adventure on this whale-watching cruise from Monterey. You might see gray (most common), humpback, and blue whales as they migrate along the Pacific coast, along with sea lions and dolphins. Hear commentary from your naturalist guide, and get photo ops of the scenery at one of California's premier whale-watching destinations. And because the tour lasts just half a day, you have time left for sightseeing.

Isaiah, Kayla & Captain Matt were awesome. We saw 10 different humpback whales and it was the coolest. They were extremely knowledgeable, Isaiah being the naturalist on board, fed my brain all the geeky science stuff my brain loves. They even talked about humans and our effect on the oceans which I was so happy about. There were only 2 children on board which made it even more enjoyable lol. I highly recommend this company to those looking for a great trip full of knowledge.

We went out to sea to start the morning and saw two whales. Then back in the bay we saw 5 more, this time they were feeding. A wonderful tour overall.
