We had such a great time on this trip. We saw Orca's, Humpbacks, dolphins, and of course sea lions. The marine biologist on our trip was great...sorry, can't remember his name! They wanted to make sure we saw all that we could and made the trip VERY worthwhile! Highly recommend this trip!

We hit the jackpot - whales jumping, sea lions and birds fighting for frightened sardines and sardine "boils" jumping out of the water to avoid being a meal!!! The crew was great. I doubt this trip can ever be replicated for me and my family.

Hello, We are very sorry to hear that your trip was cancelled. Our Captain's do the best of their ability to still get the trips out even if the seas are choppy, but if conditions turn to unsafe conditions we will cancel the trip in order to protect our guests. Conditions can worsen quite suddenly here in Monterey Bay as we are exposed to the open ocean. Please contact Britt at Britt@discoverywhalewatch.com so that we may further discuss this cancelled trip. Thank you
