My daughter and I had a wonderful time during this trip. We wanted for nothing! We had padded seats for the bikes, wonderful lunches, directions, recommendations for accommodations along the route and a wonderful guide, Virginia, who helped to make sure we were doing well and did not miss any turns! Thanks so much, it was a trip to remember!

We had a fantastic full day hike with John at Central Coast Outdoors. He was incredibly knowledgeable about flora and fauna. He appealed to adults and kids. I highly recommend this tour.

My husband, me, and our two boys (15 and 12) did the half day kayaking trip which included kayaking the bay as well as exploring the sand dunes and the beach on the ocean side. I was hesitant about doing this trip. But, I talked with Rose on the phone and she made me feel very comfortable and excited about... More

We had the best kayak tour. We weren't sure what to expect since we had never done this before. It was awesome. We ended up with a private since no one else signed up. Rose was our guide and was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend for any age. Be prepared to WALK or trek the sand dunes.

We had an excellent tour with Erin, she really appreciates the bay and knows a lot about it. The whole trip was beautiful, not too strenuous, very well paced, nice combination of in and out of kayak.

We visited San Luis Obispo for one week when my husband was attending a work conference. Our last night there, we decided to take the Morro Bay Sunset Kayak tour. WOW!!! What an amazing trip. Our guide, Kyle N. was amazing. He shared so much interesting information with us about the surrounding area and wildlife, and he was quickly able... More

My wife and I did a morning tour with our 2 young daughters (4.5 and 7.5). The guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. She customized the tour to fit our needs. We saw great stuff - including several encounters with harbor seals. I highly recommend this tour. My only regret is that we didn't do it sooner so that we... More

Every once in a while I have an experience that leaves me in awe. I planned a couple of days away with my 19 year old son and signed up for the sunset kayak tour, because I had to work that morning and couldn't leave LA until early afternoon. We arrived at the Morro Bay Marina at 5:45 pm and... More

The guide was very knowledgeable, and we got to see so much wildlife and other natural wonders. Seals, sea lions, birds, crabs, shells, jellyfish, oysters. . . Very much worth it. My only beef was that we were told to be there at 8:30 for the 9 am departure, and we waited until almost 9:45 for a family to show... More

Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback. I am very glad you had such an awesome experience on the bay with us! However, I apologize for having to wait so long for the other party after you had arrived early. This is unacceptable. We have clear guidelines for our guides to not wait this long for tardy participants for... More
