“Great activity for active teenagers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014 via mobile

Fantastic tour guided by Mason. Saw so much different wildlife including the highlight - a mother sea otter swimming on her back with a very small baby on her tum. Had seals swimming right up to our kayaks being nosy. Magical

“Two hour Marina Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

We did the 16:00 tour of the marina with a fantastic tour guide, George. We got to see plenty of wildlife accompanied by a clearly knowledgeable commentary from our courteous guide. I would certainly use this company again. The overall service from the initial booking to taking the tour was superb.

“Had fun, learned a lot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We (two adults, two kids) really enjoyed our 4pm Monterey Bay kayak trip with John. Sea otters, seals, and sea lions very close to our boats! Exciting!
John taught us a lot about the animals and the kelp forest.
Very easy paddling and stable kayaks.
I highly recommend this activity!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

The team at monterey bay kayaks ( Elkorn Slough) was efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. We saw sea otters, seals, california sea lions, pelicans, many types of other birds. 35$ For a whole day of kayaking with all the equipement was REALLY a deal!

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

We had a two hour tour, the 4.00 p.m. slot. Luckily it was just the two of us and our guide, Richie. I was a bit nervous as I hadn't used a kayak for years, but it was a really great experience. He showed us so many interesting things that you wouldn't even know existed from the shore. Loved seeing the otter munching away at a crab! And all the interesting wildlife tucked under the jetty. Kayaking back at the end was fun as we avoided swimmers, canoeists and fishermen! A very friendly outfit, as others have said they'll look after your stuff at the counter and kit you out with all you need. Wonderful experience that I'm so glad we did. Would highly recommend.
