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

I'm reading some unpleasant reviews and I must say me and my husband had a very nice experience. I thought the people were very friendly and helpful. We were definitely out on the water a long time in search of whales. It was a great experience.

Boat was a little small (not many places to sit) but great fun out on the Monterey Bay.
