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!

We had awesome experience, the guide was superb, full of information. The staff as a whole was wonderful.

We had the luck of the draw and saw some things (jelly fish) that are not normally seen in the bay

I highly recommend!!!!

John was a great guide. He showed us a ton of wildlife - otters, seals, jelly's and crustations. He was good at keeping the conversation going and made a point to interact with everyone in our group. Highly recommend. Next time in Monterey I would do this tour again, totally worth the $60.

I would suggest parking at the flat fee lot about 10 minute walk away - MOnterey Downtown East. It was a $7.00 cost for all day vs. the $2.00 an hour or so at Monterey Bay Kayaks. That way you can explore all of MOnterey after the tour using your feet or the free trolley from the garage.

Staff were amazing at check-in. They were then patient as our group including another family got ready and suited up. Carla was our guide- enthusiastic and friendly as she gave us intro to kayaking lessons beforehand. During our kayaking experience there was much sea life for us to see and Carla educated us immensely on it. It was an awesome experience and family friendly. I would totally recommend it to anyone.

Our extended family had a great time with two guides who showed us around the slough. They pointed out highlights and helped us to learn about the animals and their habitat.
Really fun morning for everyone aged 13 through 73.
