We were moved to the Monterey Bay location in hopes the weather would be calmer. Our instructors and guides were very accommodating and patient with us. Because of the rains and strong winds they pulled us out of weeds and sandbars and towed boats across the bay as we struggled. Since we had to end the tour early because of weather they set up team-building games for our group which we enjoyed. We don't have any negative feedback to provide.

Our guide was amazing and new all kinds of things about the ocean. He was able tell us all kinds of different information about the ocean. Helped us out with kayaking since it was our second time. We also saw a whale which was such a wonderful sighting. So thankful that we had our guide to help us navigate the water and see so many amazing things!
