People climbed into their kayaks on the floating dock, and then are slid off into the water.
Then people practiced paddling while others were launched, then we set up a group photo.

and here another photo getting closer to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the gray buildings on the left:
And took another group photo with the Monterey Bay Aquarium behind us (we noticed people on the balconies at the Monterey Bay Aquarium taking pictures of us).

Everyone saw otters and sea lions and many saw seals.
Nobody fell out of their kayak on this trip!
