Great experience renting a 2-person kayak. Staff was very helpful and upbeat. Great and quick, explanation of how and where to enjoy our time on the water. We saw sea otters, a harbor seal, and a whole bunch of sea lions. Remember to sunscreen the top of your feet even if the air temperature is in the 60's! And if... More

Kayaking with family of 9. Teens and preteens enjoyed equally. All of the employees were very helpful both with booking and answering questions prior to trip and the actual tour.

The people are nice but VERY MISLEADING!!!! I was clearly and directly told the battery would last the 2-hour rental even if i didn't pedal! ( I was even told to would probably last an entire day!) and even WITH pedaling it didn't last to the end of the 2-hour rental!!! After mentioning it to them they didn't care at... More

So happy that we decided to do this tour. Our guide was Ann. She was absolutely fantastic, she knew everything about the seals, otters, sea lions, generally anything to do with the sea-life and environment. We were on the water for about 2 hours, thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would definitely do it again, or recommend to anyone thinking about... More

I can't say enough good things about this company. This was a last minute decision that I am very glad I made. Whether you are vacationing with your family, friends or going solo, this is a "MUST DO." I rented a sea kayak, but the company also rents bikes and paddle boards. The cost is very reasonable and includes full... More

My girlfriend and I spent two amazing hours on Monterey Bay. Our guide was Justin and he was terrific. Very knowledgeable of the area, environment and marine life. We observed tons of wildlife including sea otters, sea lions, and tons of birds. Highly recommended to spend the extra $15 per person for the private guided tour.

This was the 1st adventure of our vacation! It was so much fun! The staff was super friendly and helpful! We used a tandem kayak and our 11 year old daughter sat in the middle of us (she got super wet, from all the paddling). We saw some great wildlife and I got some great pictures! We'll definitely be back

What a lot of fun. Great staff who helped us launch. We were a business group that rented kayaks to go and paddle for an hour after work, and it was really a lot of fun and great for teambuilding.

This review is for the location at 210 Alvarado. The staff was friendly and helpful getting us setup with bikes, helmets and a scenic route. We road into Carmel, hugging the coastline and bike route. Despite the wind, it was a pleasant and fun ride. Give it a try!

They rent a variety of bikes and pedal surreys to travel around Monterey. They have several locations around the city. Equipment was all in good condition and helmets are supplied. A lovely and fun way to see Monterey and Pacific Grove. I rode out to Asilomar and back. An easy ride.
