My husband and I were more than happy with Central Coast Outdoors experience - a honeymoon bike trip from San Francisco to Santa Barbara. Mike (and his daughter!) met us at our first Airbnb, dropped off all of the gear with excellent turn-by-turn directions to and from our custom itinerary. Mike knows these roads and the terrain so well, we... More

All of our CCO Morro Bay paddles have been wonderful - we tried the sunset paddle yesterday and loved it - our guide, Karen, was knowledgeable and fun! We had the bay to ourselves and was so peaceful. The sunset was breathtaking. Highly recommend this paddle and definitely, all of the MB paddles that this outfitter offers.

We spent the morning paddling with Mandy and learned about the ecosystem of this beautiful estuary. The orientation was to the point and we were soon out on the water learning about the wildlife and unwinding as we paddled. The kayaks were in good condition, the reception was warm and welcoming, and we felt immediately comfortable with our guide, who... More

We had a great time on Morro Bay. My son and I were both experienced paddlers and Mandy and Craig took great care of everyone on the trip. We saw seals, birds, giant sand dunes and extinct volcanoes! What else could we have asked for?

We were supposed to be a group of 6 but had to cut down to 4 a week ahead of time and the company was very accommodating. Our guide Mandy met us where instructed and we were off! Nothing but good things to say about Mandy - she added a personal element to the tour due to her history growing... More

We did the half-day kayak trip in Morro Bay and what a fun time we had! Erin was our guide and was quite knowledgeable - a biology student nearby and was a perfect guide for a curious soul like me! My husband's kayak had a leak and kept taking on water making it harder for him to haul that extra... More

We are very glad you had such a good time on the tour with Erin. We also apologize for the leaky kayak! We have instructed our staff to be even more diligent about inspecting kayaks prior to use. Thanks! More

We are a group of six 45 - 50 year-young women. Virginia picked us up at our rental house right on time, and we had a fabulous trip! Virginia was knowledgable about the local area, was patient with those of us who were not the strongest bikers, and was just as gifted with the lunch! Totally recommend this company and... More

My husband and I loved, loved our both adventures we took while visiting Morro Bay and Big Sur this summer. We booked the Kayaking in the Sunset and the Hiking in Big Sur to see the the wonderful redwoods and the famous waterfall plunging into the exquisite turquoise waters of Big Sur. Both guides: Steve and John were very informative... More

Had a great time with the guide, Katharina. She was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and plants which you become immersed in as you set off. They provide a dry bag and waterproof blanket. A very personal experience! Definitely worth it! A great deal too! We were also able to meet a fishermen catching stingrays. Very cool!
