Adventures by the Sea - New Monterey: Kayak Rental or Standup Paddleboarding Lesson from Adventures by the Sea in Monterey

Excelling at watersports, like aging gracefully or enjoying dried fruit, requires acceptance of pruney fingers. Outfit yourself for aqua play with today’s Groupon to Adventures by the Sea in Monterey. Choose between the following options:

  • For $15, you get an all-day kayak rental (a $30 value).
  • For $32, you get a two-hour standup paddleboarding lesson (a $75 value).

The friendly staff at Adventures by the Sea helps visitors develop their sea-legs by equipping them with the buoyant tools for various waterborne activities. When kayakers arrive as early as 9 a.m., they first receive paddling instruction and a wildlife orientation before donning their wetsuits and mounting their kayaks. Guests then unleash themselves on Cannery Row, where they can take in views of Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary until sunset and potentially spot swimming harbor seals, diving pelicans, and indigenous hot dogs growing in their natural habitat.

Adventure by the Sea’s lively paddleboarding instructors outfit visitors ages 12 and up with standup paddleboards, paddles, and wetsuits before imparting their aqueous knowledge of propelling oneself over water. During the two-hour standup paddleboarding lesson, new paddlers hone their balancing skills by skimming across the ocean while trying not to tickle passing otters. After departing from Cannery Row with an accompanying instructor, participants take to the sea and feast their eyes on a heightened view of oceanside scenery. Like dodgeball and professional high-fiving, paddleboarding's easy-to-learn mechanics and easy-to-operate equipment make it a compelling sport for all ages.

Adventures by the Sea

Adventures by the Sea is owner Frank Knight’s love letter to Monterey Bay. As an avid cyclist, kayaker, and surfer in his youth, Frank decided to share the gift of the bay by providing land- and sea-activity rentals for tourists. But, what started out as a small bike-rental shop frequented by local hotel guests eventually transformed into a four-location recreational company that now offers kayaking, bicycling, SUP paddling, and surrey-carriage rentals and tours.

Bicycle renters can cruise along 17-Mile Drive and the rocky shorelines of Pacific Grove, while surrey-carriage rentals provide a low-key communal pedaling adventure for up to four riders. Patrons can also enjoy the serene environment of Monterey Peninsula as they glide through the waters of Cannery Row and Stillwater Cove—both part of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary—on the company’s kayaks and standup paddleboards (SUP). During tours, knowledgeable guides rattle off facts about the area while pointing out its wildlife, such as harbor seals lounging on the rocks and otters snapping pictures of kayakers.

Along with providing land and water activities, Adventures by the Sea helps guests build stronger relationships with one another through their local group adventures, which include scavenger hunts. When customers are ready to invest in their own trustworthy gear, the company’s pro shop helps them stock up on boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, and paddleboards from brands such as Surftech, Naish Hawaii, and Paddle Surf Hawaii.
