Goddess Fantasy Vessel

Find out why the Goddess Fantasy is considered the nicest boat for whale watching on the Monterey Bay! Our big, comfortable, clean, and spacious vessel is waiting for you to come aboard!

The Goddess Fantasy vessel is perfect for…

  • People prone to seasickness. Larger boats, such as the Goddess Fantasy can handle sea conditions with more ease.
  • Photographers. Photographers have consistently said they prefer Goddess Fantasy over any other boat because they can easily walk around our 360-degree main deck and upper deck viewpoint for wherever the whales appear!
  • Bathrooms. We run a spotless boat including our clean bathrooms. Both located near the stern (back) of the boat.
  • Marine Biologists. Guests frequently comment on how knowledgeable our naturalists are and how courteous they are when it comes time to sit back in awe during the acrobatic displays of the magnificent sea life.
  • MORE WHALE WATCHING TIME. Due to our location at Moss Landing near the mouth of the Monterey Submarine Canyon typically means less travel time to where the whales are feeding on the abundance of rich nutrients!

Sea Goddess Naturalists

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 Santa Cruz and San Francisco.
