About Us

Since 1985 MBK has been a locally owned and operated business that was started by Jeff and Cass Schrock. At that time, we were pioneers specializing in eco-tourism. Sea kayaking was almost unheard of in California, especially in Monterey Bay. The amazing Monterey Bay proved to be a unique and perfect place for providing sea kayaking tours, classes and rentals. In addition, we have been committed to providing excellent customer service, with friendly and knowledgeable staff and the highest quality equipment at our retail locations.

Monterey Bay Kayaks offers a unique sea kayaking experience designed to be fun and educational for people of all ages and abilities. Kayaking is a wonderful way to increase awareness, understanding and respect for our marine life and coastal environment. All of our programs at Monterey Bay Kayaks are designed to minimize impact on marine wildlife and foster stewardship of the environment.

In 1992 the US government agreed with Monterey locals that Monterey Bay was truly a national treasure. The Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary became the nation's largest marine sanctuary, covering 5,322 square miles. Both of our locations at Monterey Bay Kayaks are fortunate enough to be located within this precious region.

Join us and let us show you how kayaking on Monterey Bay can be an exciting, enjoyable experience, simply unlike anything else!
