I have had a few experiences with Monterey Bay Kayaks. Everyone I have encountered have been very friendly and helpful. I went on a Stand-Up Paddleboarding tour with John at Elkhorn Slough. He was very helpful in providing SUP tips and he is quite knowledgeable on the wildlife in the area. It was a great adventure! Being on the water... More

We had an incredible time! Our tour guide was amazing and super knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife. It added so much to our experience. As a quadriplegic/wheelchair user, I had a great experience. I felt stable and comfortable the whole time. They definitely know what they're doing! I highly recommend a tour with this company - you won't... More

I took the Monterey Bay Kayak 2.5 hour kayak tour of Elkhorn Slough about 30 minutes north of Monterey, California in March. Monterey Bay Kayak outfitted us well with wetsuits, splash jackets, and life vests. One must provide one's own water shoes, gloves, hat, and water bottle. The staff was most cordial, and our guide provided interesting information about the... More

My friend and I went and had a blast. Our instructor was wonderful and funny, and she was incredibly knowledgeable about the area. She showed us a lot in our 1 and 1/2 hour trip around the bay.

I brought my college class here for a group trip through the Slough. Monterey Bay Kayaks was easy to work with, very helpful in planning this trip, and accommodated our fluctuating student schedules. Would highly recommend!

I'm a single Dad with two kids. The tour guide was wonderful with my daughter in one kayak me and my son in the other. A quick but thorough training lesson and we were on the water learning about the local sea life. The kids were thrilled to be navigating the ocean for the first time. Lucas was a great... More

This was an exceptional experience! Our Tour guide, Lucas, was knowledgeable about the wildlife and area, and was able to keep our tour, full of various ages and kayaking expertise, engaged and having fun. Bonus, I went when the water was cold, and wet suits were provided. Highly recommend!

We paddled the slough on a cool but dry winter evening. Our guide was very knowledgable and helpful, and the equipment provided was good quality. Overall very professional. We enjoyed seeing birds, seals and sea otters. However the bioluminescence - which was the primary motivation for the tour - was very disappointing - it was barely visible and we visited... More

I had a great time kayaking with Monterey bay kayaks! It was a lot of fun and informative too. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to go kayaking but nervous to go out by yourself. Get ready to see sea otters and sea lions!

They care- about the ecology of the bay and of the sealife in it.they know the history of the bay and the elkhorn slough. They also pay attention... More
