Commemorating my 70th Birthday
  Linda -- Aug 20, 2015 05:25 pm
I have had a clipping from Sunset Magazine for several years advertising this trip. I decided that this was the time to do it. I trained well, was a little anxious as I was doing it solo and at times apprehensive. It turned out to be the best 4 days of my life in recent memory! No need for any of my intimidation. The guide book was spot on, the days passed all to fast, Margaret was extremely supportive and I stayed in the best hotels I've ever been in. Thanks to Margaret and her team. I highly r ... more

Most rewarding trip ever
  jenny -- Oct 17, 2011 10:43 pm
My amazing Mom Clare and I decided to walk to commemorate the loss of my little sister. It was an amazing experience and much more meaningful than going to some resort and sitting around looking at people. Instead there were only cool people you meet along the way who are extremely warm and helpful. You are submerged in nature and the beauty and honesty of it. The flora is stunning and the birds are your constant companion. On long stretches of secluded beach you really feel the power of nature. ... more

Walking the Bay
  Janene -- Oct 16, 2011 10:12 pm
For two 60-year old cousins, who enjoy walking, it was ideal. The accommodations were luxurious, Margaret was always available and supportive, and so well organized everything went very smoothly for us. Can't beat the location and the value. We would highly recommend this adventure to anyone who enjoys walking on the beach. ... more

Active Adventure


This is a walking/hiking trip along the entire coastline of the Monterey Bay, a national marine sanctuary. You will be at sea level and all paths are on or near the beach. There is no elevation gain. The average day involves 10 miles per day, or 5 hours of walking. Optional excursions include kayaking, swimming, surfing, boating, fishing, horseback riding, and other beach activities.

Typical Day


You have a full breakfast at your hotel each morning. You set off on your walk each day at a time you choose to be convenient, with advice from the guide. A 9am to 10am start most days will be recommended. You walk using the custom maps and directions that have been provided to you and carry a gourmet sack lunch. You have lunch along the route at your convenience. You should arrive at your next night's beachfront or beachside lodging by 3pm or 4pm, depending on your walking speed. You can relax, have a massage, take a nap. Dinners are not included in the trip price. However, you are provided recommendations that are on site or very close by. The trips are intended to be self-guided to allow you the freedom to walk when you want and with whom you wish to walk. Your guide will be available by phone 24/7 but will not walk with you.

Age range, type of group


This is a trip for people who love to walk or hike and enjoy seeing the great outdoors. A couple will find this to be a very relaxing and carefree way to enjoy each other while seeing amazing natural beauty without the hustle and bustle of travel. Hiking and walking clubs find this to be a perfect getaway. Children who are interested in marine life and are mature enough to handle multiple days of walking/hiking are welcome. The trips are also perfect for active family reunions. Singles are welcome as the walk can provide an excellent solitary experience during the day with lively activities at the inns in the evenings.

Sleeping and meals


Each night your trail will end at a beach front lodge with great amenities and services. Trips include 5 nights of distinct lodging. One night you will be in a bed and breakfast, one night is a celebrated boutique hotel, one night is a beachfront resort hotel, one night is an inn nestled in the dunes with fireplaces, and your last night is on Cannery Row in Monterey. All breakfasts and lunches are included (except the arrival day). Dinners are not included. However, all of our lodging has great dining either at the hotel or extremely near by. Recommendations will be provided to each walker. A shorter version of this trip is available to those with limited time. A longer and more leisurely trip is also available if you wish to walk less miles per day.

No pets are allowed as you will be walking through nature preserves and other protected beach habitats. No smoking is allowed at any of the lodging.

The 6 day/5 night journey is priced at $1395.00 per person, double occupancy, sharing a bed. Please inquire for rates for singles or families.
