Guaranteed Whale Sightings Year-Round

Whale Watching Monterey

The Monterey Bay is California’s best location for viewing humpback whales, killer whales a.k.a. orcas, gray whales, blue whales, great white sharks and the abundance of marine species including dolphins, jellyfish and mola mola, which call the Pacific Ocean home.

Sea Goddess Whale Watching promises you a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Our whale watching tours depart from Moss Landing, at the mouth of the Monterey Bay Canyon, one of the largest underwater canyons in the world! The canyon is a nutrient-rich zone that attracts all types of marine life, making Moss Landing the best place for whale watching tours in the entire state of California, and Monterey Bay including San Francisco.

In fact, the Monterey Bay is home to resident whales & dolphins and visited by so many migratory whales that we’re able to offer guaranteed whale sightings year-round. Plan your day!

  • That was an experience of a lifetime. We had water-spouts all around us. We had whales swimming in tandem and single animals seemed curious about us on the surface and came up right next to the boat. I've lived in this area for about 10 years and I can't believe it took me so long to check that out.
  • Great crew and boat, perfect for the family. We went out on the Sea Goddess and the crew was really great. The onboard naturalist gave us a lot of interesting facts and information about the bay and the whales. We saw several whales and one whale followed along near the boat breeching over 100 times! It was amazing to see. I have been on other whale watching trips and these guys are the best! Thanks for a fun time!
  • Definitely recommend The Sea Goddess Whale watching tour. The crew was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The boat was very clean. We saw quite a few whales, sea lions, sun fish and jellyfish. Thanks for an awesome trip!

  • What an amazing trip we had! 4 beautiful whale spots, with three of them cresting out from the waves at the same time! The staff was so friendly, great with the kids and their questions and full of awesome knowledge. I would highly recommend this tour!
  • Excellent day on this boat. Very clean. The crew made sure we saw whales and dolphins...a lot of them. The naturalist on board was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of information. My 9 yr old grandson was amazed!
