I took my 2 sons out to experience whale watching in Monterey, CA. We have been Whale watching in Dana Point, CA and Maui, HI. The crew and size of the boat was perfect for our experience. I highly recommend Chris's Whale watching tour the Crew from check-in and on the boat were fantastic! We all had an amazing time and will be doing it again in April and May.

Chris’s Whale Watch tour was spectacular. I went yesterday, June 2nd, 2021. It was a fun trip. All the creatures we saw were pointed out to us and a lot was explained to us about them, as well. We saw Humpbacks breaching and feeding....a 500 pound sunfish, an albatross, an albino dolphin which is a very rare siting. We saw many harbor seals at the dock area, as well as otters floating in the kelp near a huge rock jetty. Many seals were basking on the rocks onone side of the jetty and cormorants were perching all over the other side. It was a delightful day and better than I expected ! I would definitely recommend this whale tour as it was smaller than the others and more attention could be paid to questions from the passengers. Kudos to Chris’s Whale Watch Tour !

There was 12 of us and everyone caught great catches. Check in was fast and guys on the boat were super helpful and polite. Great for all ages. Take your nausea meds b4 u go. Water can get choppy. They will even clean the fish for a fee too! Great day!

Went fishing with Chris’s charter service. I’ve been on other charters and Chris is absolutely the best charter service I have experienced! Captain Nick was awesome and able to get us on a lot of hot bites! The entire boat limited out. Troy the deckhand was also super nice and always had a smile on his face. Coincidentally, we saw whales and tons of dolphins! I would for sure but this charter.

I've been out with these guys twice now. Every time we've out it has been awesome. It's a smaller boat so you're not looking over people to see the action. Very knowledgeable staff that takes care of you.
