Kayak Connection is extremely organized and well run. The tour guides, Aaron and Nani, were the best. They made extra time to stop and explain the wildlife we saw and took great care to stay the required distance from the marine life, which was everywhere! During the 3+ hours, we saw many otter families, including pups playing as well as... More

The staff was very friendly but the tour was a big disappointment. Granted, it was a windy day but I would expect a 3 hour guided tour on the Elkhorn Slough to be a 3 hour tour on the Slough...actively kayaking with the tour guide pointing things out on the way. It took about 1/2 hour to load everyone and... More

We had a simply wonderful trip tonight. The tour guide Helena was really warm, friendly and helpful. She guided us through a straightforward orientation and got us going. She directed us the whole way through and helped keep the group who were all at very different levels together. On the trip we saw loads of harbour seals. You know they... More

We drove to Moss Landing and Kayak Connection from Monterey. We've kayaked in Monterey Bay but this was a much more enjoyable experience- easier kayaking and much moe wildlife. I was pleased that they provided a skirt to keep the water out, an almost water-proof top, and life preserver. The water was not rough and the wind only kicked up... More

The rental was great. Very easy and they didn't try and ding us with lots of extra charges. The rental included all gear and clothing that we might want. The down side was that we had to endure the 15 minute how to before we could get under way. Also you launch from the beach yourself so you will get... More

Our family of 6 went on a morning kayak adventure with our guide Kirsten and another couple down the Elkhorn Slough. Kirsten was very knowledgeable and caring that our children were entertained and could keep up with the paddling and our group. All the kayaks we used were tandem which made the paddling easier. The equipment was nice and in... More

I signed up for the morning kayak tour at the Moss Landing location. The guide, Francisco, was amazing and I could not recommend him enough. Friendly, knowledgeable and motivating with those who had never kayaked before. We saw sea lions, sea birds and sea otters... was a delightful trip! I would definitely go back again and rent my own kayak... More

The folks at Kayak Connection are very helpful and accommodating. We were able to choose from different kayak models. They explained the difference in performance, and in staying dry. They told us exactly what we needed to know to maneuver from the ocean to the slough, and back. The wild life is awesome! I've lived on the Monterey Peninsula for... More

Our half-day rental was reasonably priced and we couldn't have asked for more beautiful scenery, better marine life, or more fun. All of that was great. Just pay attention to the tides so you are paddling back as the tide goes OUT. (You can paddle against the tide going into Elkhorn Slough - it's a bit strenuous but fun. It... More
