Monterey Bay is a bay of the Pacific Ocean located on the coast of California.
Santa Cruz is located at the north end of the bay and the city of Monterey is on the Monterey Peninsula at the south end.
Monterey is best known for its world-renowned golf course, legendary racetrack, and incredible aquarium… but there’s one more attraction that’s often overlooked: the Monterey Canyon, one of the largest underwater canyons in the world. Carved by a river several million years ago, the submarine canyon begins off the coast of Moss Landing, exactly in the center of Monterey Bay and extends a hundred miles out into the Pacific Ocean, reaching depths of over two miles below the surface. We hope that this piece reminds you of this geological wonder–which is similar in scale to the Grand Canyon–that’s hidden just beneath the waves.
