My 23 year old granddaughter and I spent 10 days touring California in mid-October 2013. We had been alerted to try kayaking with Monterey Bay Kayaks and along with whale watching these were the highlighst of an overall wonderful trip. We were the only two who went out at 4:00 with Alex. Everybody we met at the facility was terrific and that was certainly true of Alex. He geared us up with wet suits, which were no extra charge. Wet suits are a very good idea as they will keep you warm. You will get your butt and feet wet no matter what so the wet suits are great. Wear something minimal like a swimming suit under them. There are places provided to change and store your street clothes. They suggested that we store our valuables in the car which we did.
In their store they sell waterproof cases for your cell phone/camera which has a tether to put around your neck to keep from dropping the phone in the bay.
Our guide, Alex, obviously loves Monterey Bay and its wildlife. Alex showed us many different forms of wildlife and explained their place in the ecosystem. The harbor seals were very curious and friendly and one in particular spent many minutes playing with us. I am thankful that we took the time to visit Monterey Bay and participate in guided kayaking there. I know that this exciting experience will be fondly remembered by my granddaughter and me.
