What people are saying about Monterey

Captain John and his crew, Alfredo, were very friendly and handled everything well. Our origianally scheduled tour was canceled due to weather but we were rescheduled for the next morning. We saw lots of harbor seals and California sea lions, 5 humpback whales (2 and later a group of 3), 8-9 Risso’s dolphins, and 2 purple jelly fish plus Alfredo identified several species of birds. He was very knowledgeable about marine animals and he only talked when he had something worthwhile to say. It was a very good tour, even though it was pretty chilly and the air/sky was orange from the smoke from all the fires. I would definitely recommend Discovery Whale Watching Charters.

We went during a bad time due to the wildfires going on and the fog, but it was still an amazing experience thanks to the nice staff, they did a great job. Although we didn’t see whales, we did get to see a lot of other marine animals. Since we didn’t see any whales, they gave us a “rain check ticket” so we can come back for free and see the whales! I loved it and would definitely come back and recommend to anyone! We were also able to bring our dog on the boat. 10/10

It was our first whale watching expedition!! I thought it was great! There were moments when we didn’t see any whales but it was still enjoyable. I also liked that there were extra masks on board! Thank you for that. It was very nice to have hot coffee and tea on board too.

Jonathan was an excellent tour guide. The electric bikes enabled me to ride where I would not have been able to on a regular bike. Jonathan was helpful in suggesting how much battery assist to use as well. Learned a lot of things about the local area.

The Aaron, the captain and Isiah were amazing. Very knowledgable about the whales, sea lions, seals and other animals we saw on the trip. We were lucky enough to see six whales. It was the trip of a life time.
