My favorite part of the tour was having a great naturalist, Aaron , who was able to inform us and enrich the exotic what we were seeing. I love birds so they were the stars of the show but my grandchildren loved the otters and the harbor seals

Calm and relaxing tour in a beautiful environment. The electric powered boat is what sold me - relatively quiet and no fumes. Naturalist was passionate and knowledgeable and had interesting information to share, but the only complaint is that her voice often could not be heard, and my family member who wears hearing aids unfortunately missed all of her comments.

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.
