Crew and guide were very knowledgeable about the Monterey Bay and the wildlife. The only complaint was the advertised anal bar only had chips and cookies. I would advise you take your own drinks and snacks. The ride lasted about 2.5 hours.

The humpback whales will still be in the area feeding in August. They will be the most reliable. Blue whales are also a possibility. The Orcas come and go as they feel like it throughout the year.
