About Us

Sea Salt, obtained by the evaporation of seawater, is used in cooking and cosmetics. Historically called bay salt or solar salt, its mineral content gives it a milder taste from table salt which is usually refined from mined rock salt. from Wikipedia.

At the Monterey Bay Salt Company, we believe that the cool mineral-rich saline waters of the Monterey Bay Sanctuary provide our natural sea salts with a unique flavor.

As the first salt company in Monterey Bay in over 50 years, Our company brings forward the tradition of harvest pure natural Sea Salt,directly from the source; the Ocean. We make our Salts naturally through evaporation and reduction of Sea water in solar green-houses and shallow pools.

How we extract our Natural Sea Salt from the ocean water.

  • Our solar green-houses known as “Salt Houses” are filled with fresh sea water from the Monterey Bay.
  • The sea water evaporates naturally from the heat of the sun and the dry effects of the wind blowing through the greenhouses.
  • Over a period of time, Salt crystals float on the pool surface, then grow and sink to the floor to form the salt bed.
