We've rented from them many times - always very easy, good equipment and parking available! And the Elkhorn Slough is a great place to kayak.

Good quick service, close to the put-in for the Slough. Friendly staff helped with newbies as well as experienced customers, they offer sit-in and sit on top kayaks.

Kayak Connection is extremely organized and well run. The tour guides, Aaron and Nani, were the best. They made extra time to stop and explain the wildlife we saw and took great care to stay the required distance from the marine life, which was everywhere!...More

The staff was very friendly but the tour was a big disappointment. Granted, it was a windy day but I would expect a 3 hour guided tour on the Elkhorn Slough to be a 3 hour tour on the Slough...actively kayaking with the tour guide...More

We drove to Moss Landing and Kayak Connection from Monterey. We've kayaked in Monterey Bay but this was a much more enjoyable experience- easier kayaking and much moe wildlife. I was pleased that they provided a skirt to keep the water out, an almost water-proof...More

Hi, we are a family (boys are both 24) coming to Monterey on Monday 11 April and hoping to book the Elkhorn Slough kayak tour. The issue is that I see the kayaks are for 2 but there will be 3 of us as my wife is not doing this activity. How do you deal with the odd man out (in this case me)? I will book as soon as possible once clarified this will work for a group of 3. Many thanks, Graham Johnston, Glasgow, Scotland.
