We initially stopped by to inquire about the used bike sale they had going on. They were very helpful in assisting us with an extra large bike for my very tall SO. We went back the next day to rent a kayak and had a wonderful experience from the service in the store to the beautiful waters of the Monterey... More

We rented a two-person surrey and biked up and down the coast. Katrina was extremely helpful and explained everything, including what to watch out for. We thoroughly enjoyed this "adventure" and will do it again on our next trip. Definitely needs to go on your list.

Jan was our guide for an exceptional 2 hr experience on the bay at Monterey. No experience in the Kayak needed, just a little bit of paddling involved. Jan shared local knowledge about the bay's history and the sea animals and kept us thoroughly entertained. This was a fun family activity. Adventures by the Sea, supplied wet pants and jackets...

We (6 of us) did kayaking out of Lover's Point with a guide and had a fantastic time! Some of our group hadn't done kayaks for a while and they patiently reviewed how to paddle, recommended clothing - they supply both pants and top but it was a warm day so they told us we'd be fine without the top,...

We also visited the aquarium but it couldn't compare to the amazing natural beauty of hundreds of sea lions on the breakwater. Really quite the sight. So easy to paddle to from "Adventures by the sea". This company was convenient and efficient. We went out for an hour but could have spent the day if we wanted to. The sea... More

Anne took us out on the water in kayaks, it really was a life changing experience! We really appreciate that the sea animals are wild and we wanted to get up close but with out disturbing anything. Anne was very knowledgable and knew all the good spots, we paddled and sat still on the water and before too long we... More

We booked a kayaking tour. It was our first time kayaking. We loved it! They had all the equipment needed, were well organized, and help fit you with the gear and clothing you need. Also, gave you the option of not using some of the gear. Only exception, of course, is the life jacket. Loved their shop dog - Baloo.... More

We decided to take the kayak tours because we wanted to get to know the history of Monterey, the sights were amazing and beautiful. We got to get close ups of the otters and seals and sea lions. I just wished we could've just kept kayaking we sat around in our kayaks which made me bored. The staff was amazing,... More

During a recent visit to the Central Coast we rented a surrey and on another day I rented a bike at the Steinbeck Plaza location. The young men working the counter both days were extremely friendly, patient and helpful. I would highly recommend doing business here.
