Monterey Bay Whale Watch is sponsoring a fund-raising whale-watching boat trip for the Monterey Bay Chapter of the American Cetacean Society (ACS/MB) on Saturday, June 25, 2016. We will see a variety of whales, dolphins, seabirds and other marine life, with special emphasis on searching for Blue Whales. Proceeds from this trip will benefit ACS/MB's educational programs and research grants to local graduate students.

Local distinguished naturalists will be on board to offer explanations and background information concerning the marine mammals, birds and other creatures encountered. Highlights of recent summer/fall whale watching trips include sightings of blue whales, humpback whales, Pacific white-sided dolphins, minke whales, and numerous common dolphins. Sea lions, harbor seals and sea otters are among the other marine mammals frequently spotted. Birds likely to be seen include pelicans, gulls, cormorants, common murres, black-footed albatross, sooty and pink-footed shearwaters, phalaropes and terns. Sea turtles have also been seen, as well as close-up views of ocean sunfish (mola mola).

The cost is $60 per person. Boarding is at 9:30 a.m. The cruise will depart from Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey at 10 a.m. and return at 3 p.m. To sign up, you can either phone us at 831-375-4658 or use our online reservation form. Credit card will be used only to hold your reservation, and you'll pay at the shop right before boarding the ship.
