The staff was great, personable, informative, friendly and efficient. Everyone seemed to enjoy their job and were all totally engaged. There was a storm coming in so the water was "rough" but our captain maneuvered through the water easily. Personally I thoroughly enjoyed our ocean rollercoaster ride! Unfortunately the staff had to take care of quite a few seasick people but did so professionally. The additional $20/person charge for going up top is well worth the cost. From the top deck you can sit comfortably on a bench or navigate easily to either side when whales or dolphins choose to make an appearance. And appear they did! I also feel it's important to note that the boat was maintained beautifully! This is an adventure I hope to do again and the Sea Goddess will again be our first choice!

Honestly, I had a great experience! We saw so many humpback whales only 5-10 mins after setting sail, and they kept resurfacing around us for about 60-90 mins thereafter. From the videos I've shared, it seems we were quite lucky on that day to get so close to them. The marine biologists/hosts were really knowledgeable and kept everyone engaged with where the whales' locations anytime one surfaced.

I'm giving 4 stars because it does seem like a varied experience based in luck. You should know that you're not guaranteed a full 3 hours. Our trip was right around 2 hours, but in our case, we saw so many whales that it didn't negatively affect our experience. Obviously, you're sailing in the bay so don't be surprised if the fog rolls in and the trip gets cut short or visibility is affected.

No horror stories about passengers getting seasick on our trip! We went on a Friday 9:30am excursion, and the water was mostly calm, but pick up some dramamine in case you're worried. Also, it's definitely not worth it to pay for the VIP section unless your boat is quite full/at max capacity. In our case, our boat was not at max capacity so there was plenty of room for those of us in the bottom to move freely along the boat to catch some good views.

Ps. We got the groupon- redemption was very simple/quick.

We saw at least 5 gray whales with them spouting, tail flipping and parts of their backs. It was exciting. The whales were a ways away for safety so I recommend a good zoom lense. Also this time of year the boat had to go 13 miles south to find the whales so be prepared for 45 minutes just boating to see the whales and then the same time back. The weather was glorious sun for us and we enjoyed the boat ride. Do wear a hat, gloves and coat to keep warm. There was bottled water for sale inside the cabin. We saw plenty from the lower deck.

It delivered in it's promise to see whales, and provide a lot information on the habits the whales and the birds, and dolphins. It was very informative. Also, we were really impressed when the captain of the boat went out of his way to pick up floating garbage that was floating on the surface. (a couple of balloons on a string)
Great experience would recommend it to anyone.

We really enjoyed our trip. We saw a whale and her calf within 10 minutes and then the rest of the trip we followed them around, met more whales, and saw sunfish, sea lions, seals and otters. The commentary was perfectly pitched, our guide knew when to talk and when to just let us enjoy the beauty of the animals.

We had perfect weather. Paid extra to enhance whale viewing and to help with motion sickness (also took meclizine). Saw many whales blowing/diving and even experienced whale breath! We were heading back to port when breeching whales were spotted in the distance...Our Captain detoured immediately so that we were treated to a spectacular show of cavorting juveniles!!! The crew went above and beyond to make this a memorable experience :)

We did the whale watching 2-3 cruise and WOW. Just wow. I know you can’t promise sightings ok, but these guys were simply terrific and we saw 8-12 humpbacks, a school of two types of dolphin along with a sun fish and just had the best time.
Having seen humpbacks all too briefly in Alaska, I wasn’t actually hugely optimistic we’d see too much but man o man was this trio worthwhile…and for $58 too, this was one of my favourite animal excursions ever and I’ve done safari! Lovely crew with plenty of support onboard and constantly checking how people are, very knowledgeable and just all round a fantastic experience - please book this if you’re in Monterey

My kids and I had a awesome time watching the whales and dolphins. Everyone was very friendly. Out of the seven of us that went my 8 yr old was the only one that got sick halfway though the ride but felt much better and was back at taking her selfies while we were heading back to shore. I will say that I put a ton of effort into researching which company to go with, what time of day, size of ship and it totally paid off. Everything about the Sea Goddess experience was more than I could have hoped for.

We returned to Seagoddess Whales Watching because they found very good spots whales gathering. We have 20, 17, 14, 8 years old children, and they all wanted to see whales every times we visited C A. We recommend Seagoddess whales watching company. The captain is very good to navigate whales spot, and the tour guide lady gave a lot details about whales, sea lions, and jellyfish. We have great trip.

Absolutely a great time. The crew was efficient and professional - we had no hiccups at all with check-in, boarding, or any time aboard. I was thankful that we were reminded to buy a parking pass at the wharf so as not to get a parking ticket while out at sea: those little details really helped us sit back and enjoy our trip.

AND WE SAW HUMPBACK WHALES! Honestly never thought I would be able to see them with my own eyes. It was fantastic. Would recommend 10/10. Even though the day was gray and quite cold out on the water (listen to them and bring hats and real winter coats, even in August!), that didn't dampen our delight at all. An amazing opportunity.
