We highly recommend this fun family activity! Anyone we met the rest of our time in Monterey we gushed about what a fun, inexpensive activity this was.

It was fun to be in the slough, so quiet and lots of playful harbor seals.

Marc, the owner, was very helpful in getting us acquainted with the bike. He said it was very stable and it was. I had to get off to unwind sea grass from the prop and I never felt uneasy about falling in. A great, fun experience.

This was more like a nature expedition as we were able to view a mom otter with her baby in the water, purple jellyfish, a variety of birds, and another otter using a rock to open up a clam to feed itself. Fantastic!

The bike is a workout! Be sure to wear pants with slim legging. I wore loose khakis and the bottom of my pants were covered with grease from touching the wheel during my trip.

The pure joy of seeing so many animals and sea life as we peddled along, so quiet out in nature, in the water. A way to get close to nature and get exercise. Highly recommend this trip. Friendly staff.
