Whale Watching Package

The amazing depths of the Monterey Bay Submarine Canyon make this region one of the best places in the world to watch for whales, dolphins, rare sea-birds and other marine wildlife. Depending on the season, various species of whales and dolphins are frequently sighted throughout the Monterey Bay. Our partner and neighbor, the Princess Monterey Whale Watching, located on Fisherman's Wharf has years of experience in leading boat tours to spot Gray Whales, Humpback Whales, Blue Whales, Pacific White-Sided Dolphins, Risso's Dolphins, Northern Right Whale Dolphins, Common Dolphins, Killer Whales and Dall's Porpoise. Each two and a half to three hour tour on a fully-equipped large vessel is led by experienced Marine Biologists to assist in sea-bird sightings, identification of marine wildlife and guidance in sighting species. Just a short walk from the Portola Hotel & Spa, guests will board one of the whale watching vessels and create memories to last a lifetime.
