From the Monterey Bay Aquarium to the superstar Pebble Beach links, Monterey County is brimming with ways to enjoy its spectacular scenery. But when you're ready to amp up the action, check out these adrenaline-fueled options — and get ready to earn big-time bragging rights.
The only way to make the view of Monterey's coastline more breathtaking is to see it from 18,000 feet during a one-minute, 120-mph tandem jump with Skydive Monterey Bay.
Head out on a night dive with Bamboo Reef Dive Center or Aquarius Dive Shop to swim among mysterious kelp forests, and come face-to-face with creatures that prefer the dark.
RACE CAR DRIVING
To rev up the thrills, get behind the wheel of a Formula One racing car at the Allen Berg Racing Schools at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, run by former Formula One World Championship driver Allen Berg.
