Step into the world of enchanting natural beauty where the aromas and sounds of the sea pervade the streets and squares of the city and drifting on the ocean breeze recalling the days passed. There are only a few places as fascinating and vibrant as Monterey Bay. With miles of dramatic coast, Monterey Bay is a wonderful playground for nature lovers, adrenaline junkies and escape artists alike.

There is hardly a spot in the whole world that boasts such diverse wildlife as Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary, with emerald-green kelp gardens, playful seals and silvery bottlenose dolphins. One of the best ways to experience its abundant marine life is to take a kayak. Kayaking, you may even have a face-to-face encounter with the Southern Sea Otter. Another big thrill is whale watching tours that offer opportunity to have salt-sprayed encounters with the huge beauty of blue, grey and humpback whales migrating past the bay.
