A recent survey ranks whales' bellies ahead of safety deposit boxes and mattresses as the preferred place to store valuables. Experience one of nature's most priceless resources with today's deal: for $15, you get a whale-watching tour at Randy's Fishing Trips and Whale Watching, located on Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey, which is about 1.5 hours from San Jose. Whale-spotters must make a reservation beforehand.

A family-run enterprise since 1949, Randy's Fishing Trips and Whale Watching takes marine mammal enthusiasts on a sailing excursion around Monterey Bay, where whales often hang out and swap favorite krill recipes. Either Captain Brent or Brian, both certified skippers with masters licenses from the United States Coast Guard, will narrate the aquatic wildlife tour of the bay. Gentle humpback whales are the feature attraction from May–November, and sailors from December–April can become acquainted with the gray whales that have migrated from Alaska. Marine biology buffs may spot several other fascinating ocean organisms, such as killer whales, sea otters, silver-finned raccoons, dolphins, octo-gorillas, and seals. If your trip ends without spotting a whale, you'll receive a free ticket for another expedition.

Randy's Fishing Trips and Whale Watching whisks sea-seers on two vessels, the Chubasco and the Sur Randy, each including indoor and outdoor seating. With bathrooms and enclosed lounges, aspiring whale riders will be able to revel in the bay's beauty without having to ask a nearby otter to borrow his hand sanitizer.

Tours are subject to availability and weather conditions. Not valid with any other offers. To cancel, you must call at least 72 hours in advance.
