Terrific experience

Aaron was a fabulous and very knowledgeable guide. Though I’ve visited the slough for over two decades now, I learned many interesting facts and history I’ve never heard. We saw many birds, otters, and seals as well.

My husband and I enjoyed such a gorgeous day/tour aboard this fully electric, super quiet catamaran, while visiting and touring the Elkhorn slough. So proud! Tons of information given and wildlife to enjoy. Not to mention the fresh air, while taking it all in. <3

An absolutely memorable experience! Captain Wendy and Guide Helena did a great job in explaining the wildlife, answering questions and promoting the Elkhorn Slough’s bountiful wildlife and beauty. We were fortunate to set out on a picture perfect day and with the ultra quiet electric boat, had the chance to really “commune” with nature. Very highly recommended this tour specifically because of the guide, captain and electric boat. You won’t be disappointed!

Great outdoor choice for tough-to-please crowds

Highly recommend! Our family includes die-hard nature lovers, and people who are more skeptical about doing things outdoors, and this was a hit with everyone. Aaron and Joe are knowledgeable and personable, and they are persons with knowledge. Definitely suggest making time for this activity during your time in Monterey. We saw honest to god otters! Also great bird wildlife, sea lions, and more!

The company and experience were great. The Viator app was terrible, link didn't work, address was not linked. Better to book directly. But do go, these guys were great.

It was fun to see the Sea Otters floating by us while chewing on food , such as snails. Loved viewing the large amounts of wildlife, i.e., sea lions, harbor seals, cormorants, great and snowy egrets, brown pelicans, as we floated by in our catamaran. Our tour guides were very informative and super friendly!! My husband, granddaughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Highly recommended!!!!

We loved this outing so much! We had a group of 11 seniors, ranging in ages between 75 and 85 yo. Getting on and off the boat was no problem, even with a walker. Every care was taken to make sure everyone was comfortable. Our boat captain was very skillful and knew what we needed to enjoy our trip. Our tour guide was super knowledgeable. Thank you so much, and we'll book again!
