Monterey Bay: Whale Watching Tour
- Duration options: 3 - 4 hours
Totally worth it! First time doing something like this and the experience was amazing. We celebrated our son's 4th birthday enjoying the scenery. Zack the bartender let the Captain know it was Lil man's birthday, and they gave him a birthday shot out to him which made it even more special. Family friendly and also recommended for couples. I'll be back with my lady and leave the kids at home for a couples night out. Thank you again and see you all soon.
The meeting spot was a little confusing, but the driver was on time and waited for everyone. We had only 1 hour in Sausalito and the ferry to Fisherman's wharf wasn't available the day that I went. However everything was pretty much just as described. The stop just after going over the bridge was an amazing view of the Golden Gate. It's a fantastic photo op!!
Overall, we had a great trip and Joe was an awesome tour guide. We wished that we could have spent more time in Sausalito as the 1 hour lunch break felt very rushed and we weren’t able to enjoy the beauty of the waterfront town. Alcatraz was a bit of a disappointment as we were in and out in about 30 minutes, though this is not at the fault of Gray Star.
We completed this hunt with a 7, 10 and 13 year old and they loved it! The clues were at a great level where all could participate. It took us 2-2.5 hours to complete it since we, as parents, were committed to not helping them but allowing them the joy of figuring it out on their own. It was a great way to see parts of downtown LA!
The boat left the dock right at 3pm. The tour guide was awesome at describing all the landmarks and even threw in some jokes here and there! It was such great weather and it was such a great first experience with my significant other. Would definitely do it again next time for 2 hours because it was that nice and relaxing!! 10/10!
