We were recommended kayaking in Monterey to see the sea otters. Due to disorganisation on our part, the guided tours of the main bay were fully booked so we booked a tour of the Elkhorn Slough instead and are so happy we did. We were lucky enough to be the only guests on the tour and to have sunny clear January weather. Our tour guide, John, was so knowledgable and enthusiastic about the history of the Slough, the nature and preservation of it. We saw a whole range of wildlife, including the adorable otters. Beyond the nature though, it was just a really relaxing peaceful morning on the water. Would thoroughly recommend.

The 1.5 hour was perfect. We took our two daughters - ages 5 and 8. The guide was wonderful and very patient with them. The tour was one of the highlights of our trip.

After visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium getting out in kayaks to see the sea otters, seals and birds in their natural environment was beyond fabulous. Our guide was knowledgeable and attentive to our safety and the safety of the animals. Strongly recommended for all ages.

Had an enjoyable 1.5 hour kayaking tour. The guides were knowledgeable and ensured the whole group stayed together. Would definitely visit for a longer tour if time allowed

We did a 9am kayak around the bay. Since we had young kids we had to have a guide with us but we totally preferred it that way because she was amazing. Our guide was a pre-school education major that also knew tons about the coastal wildlife. She was great with the boys and made everyone feel safe while still having a great time. We saw sea lions, harbor seals, sea otters, and all sorts of birds that our guide knew the names of but I have forgotten. Truly a great experience that we would highly recommend for any family visiting or living the the Monterey Bay area. Plus they make it very easy by suppling the wetsuits and splash guards as well as the equipment.
