“Beautiful Scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Just amazing scenery, really worth the effort. Lots of wildlife and plants to see. Recommend that you take a couple of bottles of water and take your time.

“Worth seeing”

Similar to many other aquariums but still worth seeing.
Easy to get around in. Lots to see. Relaxing wandering through

“Beautiful panoramas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Make sure to go for a long walk / bike ride on this ocean side trail. If you are a photographer you simply cannot miss this, plenty of opportunities to catch beautiful landscapes (or should we say waterscapes) and local fauna. Seals, squirrels, birds, seagulls - all you can catch trough your viewfinder!

“Wonderful Walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Walked the trail every day 25-40 minutes. So peaceful. the only sounds were from the harbor seals, seagulls and water. At the end of my walk I watched the sea otters, on their back, breaking open breakfast. The pelicans were perched on the rocks, graceful to watch take off on their flight, dive for fish and return to perch.

“Watch out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

The trail through cannery row is crowded. Period. We were on bicycles threading as gently as we could through walkers, dogs, families, and surrey-like bike contraptions. That was fine with us since the northern reach of the trail was a great ride and nearly empty. The southern end through Pacific Grove was also congested but empties onto a bike lane going toward 17 mile drive...amazingly fun.
