Serene canoe rideCatch A Canoe & Bicycles Too
Super dog friendly and helpful. Provided dog life vest and cushion for bottom of canoe. Round trip was about 3 hrs. We brought sandwiches n ate on the river. Bring water, sunscreen, and dog treats. Saw harbor seals and birds. Took a little before our dog got used to being in canoe but enjoyed it by the end.

Beautiful long walkMendocino Coast Botanical Gardens
Docents are very helpful and dog friendly. Takes about 1.5 hrs for whole walk. Worth it to do the whole walk for ocean views. Bring water for you and dog. No drinking fountains on trail. So many sites for you, so many smells for your dog.

Great location!Carmel Lamp Lighter Inn
We stayed in the Dolphin Room, a nice room that comfortably fit three of us and our dog. The outdoor seating had an area with a covered fire pit that was a cozy, warm place to enjoy the complementary breakfast and evening wine and cheese. It had a friendly, helpful staff and dog bowls, dog beds and blankets. The outside dog shower was convenient after a walk to the beach. Location is a short walk to the beach and town. We will definitely come back here.
