Monterey Bay Whale Watch
- Jo annJul. 8, 2019Don’t Go Out In The Afternoon
Don’t take your pet out for the afternoon tours. The water was rough and my dog was terrified. Yes, the staff were incredibly dog friendly and helped me when I threw up three times over the side of the boat along with at least a dozen others. The problem is their boats are not equipped to withstand the rough water and huge swells we encountered. Do yourself and your dog a favor and take Dramamine and take a tour in the early morning.

They were so great with my dog Padmé!! She absolutely loved watching all of the whales and they kept stopping by just to ensure she was having a great time!! Love it!!

I went whale watching with humans on the new Blackfin catamaran. The seas were rough and several humans became sick, but I had the time of my life and was begging for my kibble! I saw 80+ humpback whales and thousands of Dolphins. My humans would recommend other dogs to remember to bring water, snacks, and toys or chews as 4 hours can get long. Beware... The staff are so pet friendly that your humans will have to make sure they don't try and take you away in their pockets (kidding). Highly recommend.

My Lab mix and I visited the Monterey/Carmel area, because it was touted as a very pet friendly destination. We learned that this is very true. One of the highlights of our visit was a whale watching trip with Monterey Bay Whale Watch, which allows dog visitors (with reservations) on its cruises. There is no way I can do justice to this quality company, other than to say it was far beyond my expectations. The captains and crew are highly knowledgeable about marine biology, and add depth to the experience with their narration. I would recommend this company to anyone, even without a dog companion in tow. They were wonderful with my dog, who was a bit timid about boarding (although once he saw the four-legged crew members up on the bridge, he was ready to join them!). I discovered that a boat load of marine mammal enthusiasts were the perfect group for us; Rowdy made a lot of new friends. We had a truly great one-of-a-kind experience. I hope to take another cruise with this company; we need to see the Blue Whales!
