Our group of 6 ranged in age from 11-65, yet guide Dave's knowledge and explanation of the Morro Bay Estuary, pelican barge, sea otters, harbor seals haul-out, heron and cormorant rookery, tides, channels, Chumash middens, etc..... appealed to each of us! The clincher was yakking across to the Sand Spit, jumping off sand dunes (younger ones), and watching a pair... More

​​Our 30th wedding anniversary trip was great. Our experience on the bike ride was great. The lunch was great (and we learned a great new recipe for salad dressing!) . We had dinner at the restaurant you recommended in Pacific Grove and it was great! Couldn't have expected more. We will be huge fans of your service and feel like... More

We just returned from an abfab nine day self guided biking tour from San Fransisco to San Louis Obispo along the beautiful Pacific Coast. The tour was custom designed for us by John. After we packed our luggage in the panniers on our bicycles (also provided by John) we set out. Bicycles were fine with good brakes and derailleur, directions... More

We just got back from the west coast and one of our highlights was our kayaking trip at the Morro Bay with Craig our guide with central coat outdoors. It was a beautiful morning and we were the only customers. He gave us plenty of history of the bay and surrounding areas. Our favorites were sitting in a small tributary... More

We had a fabulous experience with Central Coast Outdoors for a half day bikend winery tour. Virginia did a great job leading us on a 12 mile ride. She was so easy to talk to and not at all obtrusive. We truly enjoyed her. This company has quality bicycles and equipment. They took care of everything from loading and unloading... More

My wife and I had an absolutely wonderful time kayaking with our tour guide Dave (and another couple). He shared a lot of the history of the area, let us both go at a comfortable pace and was very enthusiastic. We got to see dolphins very close by, some seals and some local birds and more. I've attached a couple... More

We hired CCO for a tour on our first day in Big Sur to get a lay of the land and to be pointed in the direction of must-sees that tourists might otherwise miss. Our guide, Mandy, was very nice and knowledgeable. The day was relaxed and tailored to what we wanted. I did expect a bit more "hiking" on... More

The weather could not have been more agreeable, the water conditions were amazing for our kayak adventure. As first timers, this was the perfect experience for me and my husband. The guides were excellent in pointing out areas of interest--we visit Morro several times a year and definitely learned a thing or two about the area. I would recommend for... More

We signed up for the half day tour, with two children 6 and under. The guides Criag and Katarina were great. Both were very knowledgeable and amiable. Katarina was very patient and accommodating when our son threw a tantrum. Would highly recommend taking the half day tour. It is a great way to learn about the area, and learn of... More
