Our daily whale watch trips are 2.5 to 3 hours in duration. (Trips are weather permitting.)
We travel to different locations within Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary to view whales and dolphins throughout the year.
Our crew will show you how to spot whales and dolphins as well as give you advice on how to best capture photos and videos of the wildlife.
Please be advised that Monterey does experience afternoon wind, so the sea conditions tend to be rougher in the afternoon.
In addition to the recommended clothing and sun protection, you may want bring a camera, binoculars, water and snacks. (up to a small cooler is permitted)
Our vessels are now licensed for beer and wine sales on board and our shop is licensed for beer sales. Therefore, guests are no longer allowed to bring their own alcoholic beverages on the trips. We do have beer for sale everyday in store and beer and wine on the vessels for sale to individuals 21 years of age and older in accordance with the California Alcohoic Beverage Control regulations.
