Given the early departure, it was really nice that they included free coffee at the wharf. We caught a TON of rockfish. There were many other guests on the boat, but it was not too crowded. A lovely outing!

The boat crew could improve the experience by asking all novice fishers to come to one area at the beginning of the trip and giving basic instructions on how to bring a fish in safely over the side, how to remove a hook, etc.

Great views of humpback whales and bottlenose dolphins in Monterey Bay.

We saw several whales immediately after leaving the harbor. The captain then decided to go north toward Moss Landing, where whales had been seen earlier in the week. I wondered about this strategy, since other whale watching tour boats stayed closer to the harbor where whales were currently congregating. We didn't see any whales after cruising around for about 90 minutes of the 3-hour tour. The captain did find several pods of dolphins, and I got some great shots of two dolphins swimming directly under where I was standing, which was very cool. We then headed back south and spotted another pod of whales. He got us within about 75 feet of one humpback that gave us a fantastic show slapping the surface of the water with his enormous tail for at least 10 minutes straight. It was magnificent to see. The other tour boats had to play catch-up, and by the time they got to where we were, the whale had pretty much stopped. That in itself was totally worth the $25 Travelzoo deal.
