I was staying at the Portola Hotel and Spa and decided to rent a bike for an hour. I had already explored (and run) towards Lover's Point and beyond a few times so I headed off towards Seaside. I ended up on this great bike path that took me to the Dunes bike path. I climbed the dunes and then... More

My husband and I did the usual searching for bike rentals in the Monterey California and checking out all the reviews. Evidently, this place had a couple of bad reviews so my husband was opting for another company. However, our hotel clerk sent us this way so we gave it a try and so glad we did. Corwin helped us...

This was a really great inexpensive fun experience my daughter and I had. We rented bikes (cruisers) and just took a ride down the coast. The scenery was wonderful and the ride was great. I can't believe how inexpensive it was to rent the bikes. The associate who helped us was really friendly really helped us out. We will definitely... More

I took up my seven-year-old nephew for the first time to do sea kayaking. Katie was so informative about where to go and what we should look for and what we should be caution about. My nephew and I had the best time ever as we paddled around the Monterey Bay looking at sea lions, sea otters, and even saw... More

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.
