From start to finish - our experience with Monterey Bay Kayaks could not have been any better! Our guide was PERFECT - incredibly calm , personable and knowledgeable! He had a passion for the ocean and all the creatures in the ocean. He offered incredible insight into the lives of the ocean life we encountered - this was by far the BEST way to educate and offer - first-hand experience while having a BLAST! This was our first time kayaking on the ocean but he put us at ease instantly and by the time we arrived back to the beach - all we wanted to do was book our next trip!
