we are very sorry that your trip got cancelled. We want each & every person to get to experience their trip. Conditions can deteriorate quickly in Monterey Bay & turn into unsafe conditions. The Captain would not cancel the trip unless it was a safety issue to go out. Often times, the water seems nice right out front of the marina, but conditons change quickly as you get out to sea. We always offer the chance to rebook or receive a refund when these circumstances arise.
