Chris’ Whale Watching Tours

The Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary is home to 27 species of marine mammals, more than 100 species of marine birds, and 345 species of fish, as well as the leatherback turtle. Captain Chris Arcoleo, Sr. and his fellow skippers introduce visitors to this wildlife menagerie during three-hour narrated tours of the sanctuary. Collectively, the skippers captain three different vessels equipped with all of the standard safety features, as well as sonar, radar, and eco-friendly twin engines. This technology—plus the captains' vast experience—gives groups unforgettable glimpses of the area's marine life, including the possibility of an up-close encounter with gray or humpback whales. Passengers should also keep their eyes peeled for Pacific white-sided dolphins, California sea lions, otters, harbor seals, and pirate ghosts.

Customer Reviews

We had an amazing time! The crew is great, and very knowledgeable!

I enjoyed being on a smaller boat and the rate of travel which facilitated viewing of wildlife: whales, dolphins and seabirds.
Matthew N. · February 8, 2017
This was a great value. The other whale watching ships were asking around $40 per person. I do recommend taking sea sickness medicine and dress warm it gets really cold once you get out of the bay. They do offer bottled water for $2.
