Best bike ride in the country!

This was our second visit to Monterey Bay and we love it! There is no better way to enjoy the beautiful ocean view along the 17 mile drive than on a bike. You can take your time... read more

Booked the 2 hour Kayaking trip in the Monterey Bay. We had Ann as our guide and she was wonderful. She obviously has a passion for the area and has incredible knowledge of the bay.

We rented kayaks from Adventures by the Sea on Cannery Row on two days in late May. Our first excursion was a two hour guided tour with Anne. She was a fantastic guide who was very knowledgeable about the Monterey Bay ecosystems and the history of Monterey and Pacific Grove. Even though we’ve been coming to Monterey for over thirty...

We shopped other rental groups and had the 'Why are they in sales' feeling. Then we stopped in to Adventures by the Sea and were treated like human beings. We came back the next day to rent a bike and the same friendly atmosphere remained. We 'thought' we knew what was good for the bike path, but we went with... More

We rented a 3-person kayak for the day. $30/person. We went out and saw otters, sea lions, seals. Not only is it worth it for the sea life but also for a different view of the coast line. The equipment was in good shape. The staff was friendly and helpful. It included pants and a jacket which kept us warm... More

We spent the Memorial Weekend at the Unscripted Monterey Beach Resort. Among the activities we undertook was renting kayaks and paddle boards from Adventures by the Sea at their 32 Cannery Row location. James greeted us and made us feel welcome right away. We filled out the release forms, and picked out appropriate garb for our expedition. James took three... More

While in Monterey we took advantage of riding the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreational Trail by renting bikes at the 685 Cannery Row location . We got there right after opening and the young man who helped us out (Jason?) was so very nice and professional. He helped to pair us with the right size bike for us. We had a... More

Rented a tandem kayak with my dad for my birthday. It was great! We got out pretty easily and made our way through the kelp. Got to see a hmch of seat otters which I was hoping to see. We heard one of them making a strange call and realized it was a baby calling for its mom. She came... More

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...
