What a fun weekend kayaking with the family, We found Central Coast Adventure at a random pick and they were great. The price is good, helpful and friendly staff. I felt being one with the nature, the bay, sea lions swimming next to our kayak, it was the best! We will be back for sure plus it's a great workout.... More

My husband and I did the 1/2 day kayak trip with Craig, and Mandy assisted. It was fantastic. They were both very knowledgeable and approachable. We especially enjoyed the sea lions and the sand dunes. We would do it again. Also, 4 years ago, we did the bike ride from Ragged Point to Cambria, we thoroughly enjoyed that also. After... More

We went on the 1/2 day kayaking trip with Craig, and it was awesome! It was like a private tour, since it was only our family (5 kids, 2 adults), and Craig really tailored the experience just for us. We spent a lot of time at the sand dunes, which the kids loved. Was quite a highlight for our vacation!

We did the sunset tour with Kyla and it was a truly memorable part of our overall holiday - the setting was amazing, great to see so much wildlife, drinks and nibbles on the sand dunes was idyllic and we paddled back home in near darkness. Everyone in the family absolutely loved it, including my wife who was a little... More

We had an AMAZING time on the tour. Everything was great - the trails, the lunch, and especially Mandy. She was so knowledgeable - we learned so much more than if we had navigated on our own. I'm not sure how she managed to drive on the curvy road, engage in conversation with grownups and entertain 3 kids all at... More

Our sunset kayak tour with Craig was amazing! He was so fun, friendly and knowledgeable about the bay's unique history, features and inhabitants and genuinely enjoyed sharing it with our family. We paddled next to harbor seals observed birds in various habitats before heading to the sandslip for snacks while we watched the sunset - God put on quite a... More

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?
