My wife and I went on a whale watching cruise with Discovery Whale Watch out of Monterey. The captain and crew were very knowledgeable and were able to identify likely feeding grounds. It took relatively little time for them to find multiple pods. They also leveraged their knowledge of animal behaviors to spot which animals were likely to demonstrate more active behaviors. While they assured us that not every cruise is so lucky, they were able to position us to witness the full range of feeding behaviors — including a full breach, vertical pinch maneuvers where three whales popped up out of the water simultaneously, and a wide variety of tail and pectoral fin slaps. It was a very fulfilling experience.
best whale watch of my life and I have been on many. they knew exactly where to find the whales and turned off the boat motor while humpback whales started lunge feeding right next to the boat. they were so close we could see inside their mouths as they breached the surface. they also enticed dolphins to come ride the pressure wave of the boat it was so exciting!
Captain knew where to go and guide (Isahia) was excellent. Followed a pod of humpbacks and saw many other creatures.
This was an amazing tour. We got to see humpback whales and dolphins. At the end we saw a giant Blue Whale!
Our experience was amazing! We saw so many whales! The crew were great! Would recommend using this company
