My sister and I went looking for an adventure and that is exactly what we found. Though neither of us are spring chickens, or what you would call terribly athletic, we decided kayaking the bay would be fun. Our guide (darned, I wish I could remember his name) went above and beyond to make sure we had a safe and... More

We saw a bunch of kayakers out on the water when visiting the Monterey Bay museum, and that piqued our interest. While we were walking down cannery row we stumbled across a couple returning to Adventures by the Sea. They gave the company a rave review so we walked in and booked a kayaking tour for the next day. We're... More

We didn't do the water activities, so I can only speak to the bike rental. We rented the small surrey for $25.00/hour. Worth every penny. Our two year old daughter couldn't get enough. You ride on the Monterey Recreational Trail. There are some fantastic views, and plenty of places to stop for a coffee or a bite to eat. They... More

My husband and I visited Adventures by the Sea on Labor Day weekend. We walked in without any prior reservations, and were able to quickly get a kayak rental. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They provided us with a kayak, oars, wind suit, life jackets and a dry bag (to keep your camera and personal items dry on... More

The family and I decided to rent a survey bike in Monterey to take advantage of the great recreation trail. The place was jumping on the holiday weekend so there was a "wait list" a mile long when we checked in. Next time we'll make a reservation for sure. The survey bike was $25/hr (seems fair) and was a good... More

My friend and I got a private tour of Stillwater Cove (only 2 of us signed up) by John. He is a marine biologist and very knowledgeable about the history of the area, the marine life and even knew about the lives of some of the Pebble Beach residents. During the 2 hour guided tour we saw sea otters and... More

Store managers and owner not very nice. Was told one policy at one of their locations and a different at the other. My kids were looking forward to do big bike from one location to the other. And despite what I was told at one place they refused to let us do what we wanted with my kids right there... More

This looked like a fun thing to do...leisurely ride for an hour with my wife up and down the waterfront. Well...prices were reasonable, scenery was nice, employees were helpful. But this was a LOT tougher than it looked, especially on any kind of incline. There aren't gears so you work really really hard, and navigating the narrow poles at the... More

Had a great morning cycling along the coast, bikes were basic but easy for the kids to handle. Stunning scenery despite the weather, made for a fun morning. Staff were very friendly. Would recommend as a great way to see Monterey.
