About Blue Ocean Whale Watch
Blue Ocean Whale Watch is owner-operated and has the most unique boat on the bay. Our boat, High Spirits, is a 60ft yacht with plenty of space inside and out. An observation deck up top provides a 360 degree view of the bay and a perfect vantage point for spotting wildlife and taking photos. Our tours depart from the heart of the Monterey Bay: Moss Landing Harbor. Moss Landing is the closest port to the start of the Monterey Submarine Canyon; a nutrient-rich area that attracts a variety of wildlife. Blue Ocean Whale Watch is owned and operated by Captain Jim Davis and Captain/Naturalist Kate Cummings. Jim, Kate and the rest of the crew love their jobs which makes a big difference in the experience of our customers. Whales are spotted year-round in the Monterey Bay as well as a wide variety of fascinating wildlife! We look forward to welcoming you on board!

Captain Kate inspired me with her passion for whales! With her expert ability to find wildlife we enjoyed watching two humpback whales, risso dolphins, sea lions, sea otters, a variety of birds, and mesmerizing jelly fish. I can’t wait to take this tour again!

Never, never, never have I been on this boat & seen the same thing twice. Always something new & exciting. Great Captain & Crew. I learn something new & see something new, each time I go out. Captain Kate the GREATEST. or the GOAT

I come out with Blue Ocean time and time again. The boat is spacious with indoor and outdoor seating (not that you sit much during whale watching tours) but the main reason is Kate, the captain and naturalist. She is a book of knowledge of all things whale and marine related. You won't be disappointed.

Whale watching is a great way to spend time outdoors. Although we didn't see a lot of wildlife, it was very peaceful. We saw one young humpback that entertained us for quite a while, also some sea lions. The weather was overcast most of the time (this was a 10:00am trip) and it gets cold - be sure to dress warmly in layers and take sea sickness medication. The boat is clean and comfortable. Great for about 15 people - I'm glad they aren't taking full capacity. We did not pay extra to sit on the upper deck, the view was just fine from the front of the boat on the lower deck.
