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.

Guide was enthusiastic and wanting to share. Boat was smooth and comfortable. Space to stand up and walk around in boat. The otters are fun to watch, with relaxed back stroking while eating worms!

Awesome day! I brought my mother and my daughter and we all had a great time. The electric boat is new, quiet, and clean. We got to see all kinds of birds and otters and other wildlife and the tour guide explained everything. What a great day@

Very knowledgeable guides! Every question that was asked they had an answer for. We saw sea lions, otters (and their babies!), harbor seals, and many different birds, including herons and cormorants. They drove very slowly so you can really watch the wildlife. Even still, I'd recommend having binoculars. Very positive experience.
