Agree with above; if you go on a whale watching tour you will probably see whales. I went in June of this year and we saw many whales, and it was amazing.
We will be in Morro Bay on Wednesday 10 September and would like to take a whale watch tour. Do we need to book in advance to ensure we get two seats?
