From reading the various forum topics, it seems that the options to travel to Monterey Bay from San Francisco are rather limited. The recommendation is taking the Monterey Airbus which will mean we will need to head to the SFO airport from the city first.
The shuttle to SFO should be about $17 and the shuttle from SFO to Monterey Bay would be $50 per person. In total, the 4 of us will spend $268 to get to Monterey Bay and another $268 to get back.
We would like to get on a boat to go whale watching in Monterey Bay but would like to know if it is really worth the journey ( and money!) or would a similar tour in San Francisco let us experience the same 'magic'?
We will be in San Francisco ( 11-15 Oct)
Appreciate any advice! :)
