What an incredible time, we had 20 Humpback Whales surrounding the boat for the entire trip! High Spirits is a 60 ft. vessel that accommodated the 24 guests on the cruise very comfortably, with the upper and front decks offering a lot of space for photographing and viewing. Captain Jim Davis and Naturalist/Photographer Kate Cummings were not just a pleasure to spend time with, they were equally considerate of all the guests/photographers and most importantly the Whales. Kate had an answer for every question about the animals migrating through Monterey Bay, their habits, their actions and the ecosystem in the Bay. We saw the first Whale after barely getting outside the harbor and spent much of the day surrounded by a dozen or more individuals at a time. It was a lot of fun watching the sea lions follow the whales and dive with them, acting like they are pretty much enamored with these majestic mammals. I can recommend this experience to anyone and everyone.
