Monterey Bay hosts dog friendly parks, beaches, and more!
Monterey Bay is known for its beautiful beaches, gorgeous wildlife, and rich history. But did you know that Monterey Bay is also a dog-friendly city with lots to do for you and your pooch? Come to Monterey on vacation and don’t leave behind your four-legged family member!
Many local businesses offer pet-friendly activities. The Monterey Bay Whale Watch offers great dog-friendly whale tours. If your pooch is leashed, they’ll enjoy a thrilling boat ride out into the bay for the possibility of spotting killer whales, humpbacks, blue whales, or others! The Casa Munras Hotel & Spa and the Best Western Plus Victorian Inn are both pet-friendly properties, perfect for you and your best friend! Our staff can assist you in booking your Whale Watching tour and can help you call ahead to check for availability.
Another great pet-friendly adventure can be had with AG Venture Tours. Specializing in wine tasting, sight-seeing, and agricultural education, getting into the spirit of Monterey County is easy with AG Venture Tours! These half or full day excursions are completely customizable, great for groups, and best of all, they allow dogs on van tours for no additional fee on leash! Evan Oakes, owner and operator of AG Venture Tours, is an agricultural scientist who specializes in viticulture, so your tour will come with fascinating information about wineries and the beautiful Monterey County environment. Call ahead to check for availability.
Monterey Bay also has a plethora of dog-friendly restaurants, with patios that allow your pooch to relax while you enjoy your meal. Give your restaurant of choice a call and see if dog-friendly patio seating is available. Some restaurants offer a few doggy menu options and complimentary water for your thirsty pooch.
Dog-friendly beaches include the Monterey Recreation Trail, Monterey State Beach, and Asilomar State Beach. El Estero Park and Jacks Peak County Park both allow dogs on leashes. Our beaches and trails are some of the most beautiful outdoor spaces imaginable. They’ll be sure to take your breath away as you explore the landscape with your four-legged friend.
With so many pet-friendly things to do, it’s no wonder our guests love to bring their pups on their Monterey Bay adventure!
