Whale watching companies - any one better than the others?

by Nusha

I am planning on being in Monterey the last week in August and would like to take a whale watching tour but can't make up my mind regarding which company to go with. Any advice? I realize that there is no guarantee with any of them regarding actually seeing whales, etc...but I am guessing that there is some difference in the quality of service provided overall.

Hello

I'd suggest MONTEREY BAY WHALE WATCH
Int'l +01 (831)-375-4658

Estimated Cost Adults $45, children 12 and under $35, children 3 and under free.

9 a.m. deparurues are scheduled every day from May 1 through December 12, 2008, afternoon Trips are also scheduled, both esitimated at 4-5 Hrs

Monterey Bay is the best place in the nation to observe a variety of marine mammals and seabirds. Whales often shift feeding locations throughout the season and 4-5 hour trips allow ample time to locate and observe them

That best time is between the summer/fall season (when humpback and blue whales are frequently seen) and the winter/spring season

From late November through mid December when the season is limited to humpback, blue and gray whales


Best wishes

I completely agree with the Monterey Bay Watch. We had such an outstanding trip with the Bay Whale Watch! We could not decide whether to take this trip of the trip offered by their next door neighbor. We left at the same time as the other company. We were out for 3 hours, they were out for 2 and a half. We saw whales up close in our last half hour, while the other company's tour was back at the dock. We had an actual marine biologist aboard; they had a marine naturalist aboard. The Monterey Bay Watch group has determined that 3 hours is better than less time as it give them more opportunity to find and observe the whales. They guaranteed whales. If you did not see any, then your next trip is free so that you have a second chance at spotting whales. They do not, of course, guarantee how close you will get to the whales. So spotting whales even from a distance counts as having seen whales. With gray whales it is rare that you get the close up view, although when we were out a couple came right up to the boat. We were LUCKY. Because of the different seasons, and the different whales that are in the area, schedules vary. In the summer when the humpback and blue whales are in the area you may choose from a 3 to 4 hour tour or a 4 to 5 tour.

Travel Tips for Monterey

Sardines

by spgood301

At one time, Monterey was the sardine packing capital of the world. Cannery Row was then the heart of the sardine industry in Monterey. Some remnants of those days exist even now-part of Monterey's history.

Grab a sunset meal along the water front.

We relished a beer with some fish 'n chips at a little English Pub. The waitress was an authentic, red haired, Irish lass recently moved to CA. From the windows we could see seals gathering in the last few rays of sun on bouys and a playful otter dashing and diving between small boats. Great ambiance.

Foggy Sand Dunes at Asilomar State Beach

by zrim

The weather is an attraction in itself. Most mornings seem to be foggy with the sun burning off the mists by lunchtime. The shrouded dunes are great for a short hike and there is no chance of a sunburn in these conditions.

Spanish Influence in Monterey

by Ewingjr98

Besides the Presidio of Monterey, there are other sites that recognize the local Spanish heritage in the Monterey area. I recently visited the Spanish Cross on the beach in Seaside. There, a 20-foot tall cross stands in commemoration of a similar cross erected by Spanish missionaries in 1769. A plaque at the site reads:

"In the winter of 1769, the Spanish expedition in search of Monterey Bay, under the command of Don Caspar de Portola and Father Juan Crespi erected a cross on or near this site and left this message: The land expedition is returning to San Diego for lack of provisions today, December 9, 1769."

The Vizcaino-Serra Landing Site marks the location where Sebastian Vizcanino landed in 1602, claiming this land for Spain. On June 3, 1770, Fray Junipero Serra landed on this spot and helped establish the city of Monterey.

Additionally, the area has the Presidio, the Cathedral of San Carlos Borromeo, Carmel Mission, the El Camino Real, and more.

Monterey's Raccoons

by Ewingjr98

Monterey has the largest population of raccoons I've ever seen in a city, small town, or the country. Some nights near the wharves, just after dark, you'll see a mess of coons sneaking out from under the wooden structure to search for the masses of tourist trash that is lying about. Enjoy looking at these crazy little guys, but don't get too close, they have sharp teeth and are known to occasionally bite with their mouth full of 40 teeth. Adults can weigh up to 35 pounds, and these chubby guys who thrive on leftover bread bowls and chowder must be getting about this heavy. The breed in winter and young are typically born in March or April.

In Monterey you will see raccoons around Fishermans Wharf, on the quieter streets downtown and in some of the parks. They often crawl into the storm drains along the curbs when scared or threatened.

Recently we've had two or three climb up on the roof of our apartment building each night and cause problems.
