El Estero Boating
Welcome to El Estero Boating
Come enjoy the fun and beauty of boating on Lake El Estero... a jewel of a City park lake in the heart of downtown Monterey... just 2 blocks from Fisherman's Wharf! Our paddle boat rentals, called El Estero Boating, are located across the lake from world-famous Dennis the Menace Park, within the City of Monterey's larger El Estero Park.
There are plenty of things to do in Monterey and so much to do within this beautiful park... it offers our great paddle boat rides, the always-fun Dennis the Menace Park, picnic and barbecue areas, fishing piers, a skatepark, and more. Come visit us on Lake El Estero and enjoy your day on our paddle boats and all this wonderful park has to offer!
Our location is the corner of Del Monte Avenue and Camino El Estero, on Lake El Estero just across the street from the Monterey Beach and the Recreation Trail. Come see us!
