We spent four nights in the Monterey area and experienced many of the area's attractions in that time. The Elkhorn Slough Safari was the most enjoyable attraction for the money in the area. The boat operators were very professional and knowledgeable, making sure that our experience in the slough was comfortable, enjoyable and met all of our expectations. Otters are... 更多
We were a group of 25 who pre booked a charter a month in advance.the pontoon boat with a naturalist on board as well. We saw wonderful sea life from start to finish. The pontoon boat is comfortable with good views from anywhere on the open boat.
What a wonderful way to start the day! A trip on a pontoon-like vessel down the Elkhorn Slough (pronounced slew) with our genuinely enthusiastic and very knowledgeable guide, Austin. We saw masses of harbour seals, sea lions and sea otters and their pups, and umpteen bird species and learned much about the Slough and its environment. A great opportunity for... 更多
If you are in the Monterey, CA area, and particularly if you're with kids, don't miss this opportunity! You get on a flat boat, like a party boat, with maybe 30 people, a captain and a very verbal "guide." You glide thru this slough and see huge numbers of animals and birds....California sea lions, Harbor Seals, and the big draw,... 更多
The best part of the trip is the knowledgeable naturalist who accompanies you. We saw lots of wildlife, but more importantly learned a lot.
I have lived in the Santa Cruz area for 5 years now and have been on all the ocean field trips and kayaking with my kids. I thought I had seen and known it all about the Elkhorn Slough wildlife (sea lions, harbor seals, otters, and lots of birds). I heard about this place word-of-mouth from another Santa Cruz native... 更多
Visiting Elkhorn Slough in spring is perfect as the range of animals and birds are supplemented by the addition of adorable babies and/or prospective parents in courting phase. Seeing the wildlife is made all the more amazing thanks to the information given by the knowledgeable captain and naturalist on board.
Great nature excursion!! Loved it!! Boat ride to view marine animals and water birds. Excellent guide and boat captain. They pointed out and seen lots of animals!! Lots of sea otters. It was an amazing adventure. Takes you through the slough where you would not be able to view the animals by land only by water. Very knowledgeable. Had coffee... 更多
Great day to go on a flat bottom boat ride. the guides were quite knowledgeable in animals and the area. SOO many otters and sea lions. Never a dull moment. Great place to bird watch as well
Ashamedly not being such a bird-lover, etc.,this tour was surprisingly interesting and fulfilling. The captain and naturalist were very learned about the flora & fauna of the Elkhorn Slough and created a wonderful little local adventure. We got much information about sea otters, sea lions, various birds, the massive sub marine canyon, and history. Quite worthwhile and well-priced. They served... 更多
