We rented two bikes yesterday to Cycle the 17 mile drive and could not have wished for better service. The girl in the shop raised the seats on both bikes for us, made sure the tyres were pumped up correctly and that the brakes were in perfect working order. The bikes were in excellent condition and very well maintained and... More

You can't approach the wildlife because you need to stay 50 feet away, but the seals sure do approach you. One little guy played with us by swimming back and forth under our kayak. So much fun! Great informative employees that are very conscious about taking care of the wildlife.

This shop resists the temptation of by the hour charging for kayaks. We rented gear and boats for two persons for all day for about $30 each including all gear. The launch is surf-y and the staff has the technique well honed for getting you and your boats out to the kelp. We saw at least 10 otters as well... More

We would highly recommend renting bikes from Adventures by the Sea, but here's some good advice. Unless you are just planning to go a few miles up the coast, you really need to get the electric bike. We found it invaluable getting up the big hills around Pebble Beach. Also, do not rely on the map that is attached to... More

What a great way to see Monterey, from the ocean view. It was a perfect day to paddle. I took both kids out (18 & 16) an did not worry a bit. We paddled from Lovers Point almost to the marina and back. We saw dolphins, sea otters, sea lions and seals. It was truly amazing. All in all it... More

Hired a couple of bikes complete with maps and took to the coast. Guys real good at the shop getting us setup and on our way. Maps great though abit overstated in the nature of type of terrain. We didnt struggle at all in the hard sections marked on the ride. Stated this to them when we returned bikes. They... More

Service was top notch. Ann was our guide. She was great. We saw otters, seals, and seal lions. Ann is super smart and taught us a lot (including how not to fall into the ocean). The online booking was a little suspect - i recomend calling instead of using that. The guys that got us fitted and in the water... More

Me and my friend rented a stand up paddle board for a reasonable price. The staff was helpful and answered to our questions. Furthermore, Adventure By The Sea has a great location, which permits to see an important population of sea seals.
