Giving thanks for a wonderful summer and getting ready for the winter whale season

Thank You to everyone who joined us for Whale Watching and Shark Tours this summer and fall. We appreciate your business and compliance with Covid-19 Health and Safety Regulations. Your continued patronage means so much to us.

The season’s not over! Whale Watching tours run year-round and can be the perfect activity for locals ready to get some fresh air, school groups, visiting family or work colleagues looking to spend some time together outside the office.

Whale Watching trips on Monterey Bay run DAILY over the Thanksgiving holiday week.

December trips are available - we'll start seeing migrating gray whales soon!

We continue our commitment to safe operations on board our boats. We are abiding by Santa Cruz County and California State Health Department Regulations for outdoor activities.

* Passenger loads are drastically reduced on our boats so you'll have plenty of room to spread out along 60 feet of rail!

* Face masks are required for all passengers and crew.

* Boats are equipped with hand sanitizer and running water in the restroom.

* Canned beverages and wrapped snacks are available, or BYO picnic lunch (no outside alcohol).

* We are following all health protocols to keep you healthy while you enjoy the fresh air and amazing wildlife on Monterey Bay.
