These guys are terrific. We did a Big Sur hiking tour with John, one of the company owners, and he couldn't have been cooler, more knowledgeable or more accommodating. My wife and I actually weren't feeling all that well that day, but John made it work anyway. Great gourmet lunch. And he made it possible for us to see a... More

Had a great hike with Virginia- she was incredibly knowledgeable and great to talk to- really enjoyed our hike with her! We'd definitely hike with her again the next time we return to Big Sur. Couldn't have asked for a better time.

This is a great spot to get away from crowds and enjoy your own private section of Central Coast Beach front on the Pacific Ocean. Enter the Bay with a canoe, or kayak at the Western boat ramp in Downtown Morro Bay. Be prepared with water, food and to pack out any human waste, there are no Port-o-potties where you... More

I'm glad you had a good time on the sandspit at Morro Bay! But it does not appear from your comments that you took a tour with us. We do guided kayak tours on Morro Bay and often do stop on the sandspit, however. More

Took a wonderful 3.5 hour kayaking trip in Morro Bay led by our able guide, John Flaherty. We learned a great deal about the local floral and fauna, as well as the oyster-harvesting operation in the Bay. Even though we live on the Central Coast, we got a chance to see the coast from a totally different perspective. And we... More

We like biking and we LOVED biking with CCO. We took two tours with this company - Paso Robles and HWY 1, - and Virginia, our guide, was great - helpful, flexible, knowledgeable and experienced. Our bikes were very good and lunches were delicious. We highly recommend them!

My husband and I booked Central Coast Outdoors for a hiking tour in Big Sur while on our honeymoon in November, and we loved it! John, our guide, was friendly and informative. We met him at a State Park and hopped in his car. He took over from there for the next 6 hours. We walked up and down the... More

Absolutely fantastic trip. It was just me and my girlfriend for our 6th month anniversary and everything was absolutely perfect. The guide, John, was extremely easy going and a blast to talk to, he had extensive knowledge about the area and was also a fantastic cook. Once finally reaching the sandspit where we would eat dinner, me and my girlfriend... More

We wanted some exercise to balance our wine tours and restaurant outings so I booked a bike tour for the middle of our trip to Paso Robles. We wanted the security of a sag wagon . Our guide was John, and because we are beginner to moderate road bicyclists, he gave us an east side tour of Paso Robles wine... More

We did the Morro Bay 1/2 Day Kayak Tour With Lunch and it was amazing!! Our guides, Dave and Rose were very knowledgeable about the area, the birds and the sea life. They really took good care of us. The lunch was delicious! The salad recipes are posted on the website. I made the tabouli and it was a hit!!... More
