We had a great time and everything was way better than expected. The staff went above and beyond to take care of the older gentleman we had on the boat. Everyone had a great time including my wife and 8 year old daughter. The coffee and hot chocolate was a nice touch.

Crabbing was okay but fishing sand dabs with the kids was great. On top of that, kids were treated with the marina life of Monterey. They were able to see whales, dolphins, sea otters, and multiple species of fishes.
