This was an AWESOME experience. So glad that my mom and I went. We saw so much wildlife including BABY OTTERS. 🥰 Everyone on the team was super knowledgeable and was just as excited as we were about the animals - that’s passion! Would recommend to anyone!

Beautiful day, very nice boat, great commentary. I took my grandchildren and they learned A lot. The 14 year old said he has to write an essay for school so he's going to write it about the slough. We saw lots of otters, some eating housekeeper worms. That was a highlight for the kids.

Exceptional tour of the Elkhorn Slough gives me hope for a sustainable future

Being in nature on this exceptional tour of the Elkhorn Slough gives me hope for a sustainable future. The Captain and well educated tour guide are doing things the right way to protect the fragile ecosystem of the Elkhorn Slough that birds and animals use as a safe haven. We saw playful sea otters, flipping sea lions, and Harbor Seals basking in the sun. I picked up birding during the pandemic and to my delight the tour guide is a bird expert and answered all of my questions. This experience was the highlight on my first vacation in 2 years. The new catamaran was custom built for these tours and is quiet, comfortable, with great views. Dress warmly since the wind can kick up. I left the flyer for this tour with the front desk at Springhill Suites Dunes at Monterey Bay and told them to recommend this trip to visitors.

I was happy to find this newer way to experience the Elkhorn Slough on a catamaran with my son and grandkids. The ship is new, pristine, and comfortable. The tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and knew the environment well. We went out on a calm sunny day, but there was wind on the water, so be sure to pack a jacket with a hood if you have one (hats may blow off) and some sunglasses and binoculars if you have them. Highly recommend!

The team at Monterey bay Eco Tours was outstanding in their depth of knowledge and approachability. The all electric boat was delightfully stable and whisper-quiet. We had no trouble hearing every bit of the narration and conservation. This was a unique and delightful experience that I will repeat and recommend to all my friends.
