To clarify, it was genuinely a lot of fun. I was visiting a friend in Monterey for a week who then took me to MBK for my first ever ocean kayaking experience. The staff was kind, the location was awesome, the kelp forest along with otters and jellies made it even better but once again the price was rather hefty just to take out a double kayak for a few hours. I believe that it being seasonal during the height of tourist season increased the price but if you have the money to burn and want fun in the historic waters of Monterey Bay, look no further.

Don't kayak a lot, so the prespect of a two hour kayaking trip was a little daunting. However, the guide was extremely helpful and very knowledgable about the process, the area, and the wild/sea life. It was a lot of fun.

We took the 11am tour with Brittany and Mason two very knowledgable guides who guided us through the harbour and round the marina. Frequent stops were made to view the wildlife and the highlight was watching a sea otter try to get on board a fellow paddlers kayak!

We took the 11am 2 hour family tour into Elkhorn Slough...we were there celebrating a birthday! Everyone, from the cashier to the guide, was friendly and helpful! Having the wet suits included was a real bonus too. Some in our group had never kayaked before and the guide was very patient. He was very knowledgeable with the Elkhorn Slough habitat as well. The amount of wildlife we saw was amazing...sea otters, pelicans, lion head jelly fish, sea lions and more. I hope to be back soon except to take the tour to Kirby Park and catch the van back! :)

After a brief training/safety session we enjoyed a great kayak trip on the Monterey Bay. I liked that we stopped several times to enjoy the wildlife. Care was always taken to assure we didn't get too close. The pace was easy and 2 hours was a perfect amount of time.
