Stopped by to rent kayaks for the day. Wife and I were first timers and the staff reviewed everything thoroughly and efficiently. Shoved off at a little beach near the Monterey Plaza, and enjoyed about 3.5 hours of relaxing fun. Abundant sea life and lots of curious visits by otters and seals. Whales were cruising by and we were in... More

Renting bikes took a total of two minutes, with helmets provided, and the bikes had fanny packs attached for easy storage as well as a laminated map of the surrounding areas. People working behind the counter were extremely friendly and attentive.

We had a fantastic time. Several kayak novices in our family, our host Miriam was very friendly and took away any nerves. We paddled out and straightaway saw sea lions, otters, and harbour seals. Bay was calm, apparently mornings are usually the best. A super and relaxing way to get to know Monterey Bay.

We spent our 4th of July weekend at Monterey and Carmel. And it was excellent. After full day at the Aquarium (which is wonderful, strongly recommended), we are more than ready for some activities on the water. We came across Adventures by the Sea, and signed up for Kayak Tour. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The only setback was... More

A friend had recommended sea kayaking in Monterey. Very skeptical at first, but these guys made us very comfortable. Showed us how to paddle as this was our first kayaking experience. Just amazing! Seals came up to us as we paddled in the harbor. Highly recommended when you are in Monterey!

It was so fun to go kayaking and see seals and otters!! I don't recommend this to children, because it's a very rough ride, you have to push and work hard to paddle against the wind. But it's so cool to see little animals in the water!! The service was great, they gave us dry suits and life jackets and... More

We stayed across the road from this place so was very convenient. Great staff, all very friendly. We hired Kayaks to paddle around the Bay and then hired Paddle Boards for the first time which was great fun. They gave us some very straight forward lessons. So close to the water and easy to get out. Well worth a visit... More

Two out of the three of us were kayaking almost-newbies, but the staff here made us feel so confident and relaxed. We had a beautiful time kayaking the bay, although it was a bit windy our day, leading to a touch of seasickness from the waves. We got close enough to watch the sea otters play in the kelp and...

We rented bikes for the day to get around Monterey Bay. We stayed on the bike trail most of the time and it was a great way to see Cannery Row, Lovers Point, etc. The girl at the shop was helpful and very pleasant, even though she was busy with a group of campers from the museum. The price was... More
