We called Bill first thing in the morning and were able to get a 5 pm kayak tour for that same day. The tour was awesome - we saw seals, many kinds of sea birds, and of course the caves. If you are not adventurous you could still enjoy this tour by not going in a few of the caves... More

Great place to visit. The museum is a sample of surfing history including my 1965 Pismo Beach nose rider. My granddaughter G. G. says Tommy is the best surf instructor. Kayak tours are the greatest

This place is awesome! A hidden gem right off Pismo Beach. Definitely recommend the guided kayak tour, got to see some of the hidden caves and explore the kelp beds. The tour guide was funny and very informational. A must do adventure!

Just by walking into his 'eclectic' business without anything specific in mind, Bill said "You both should go for a Kayak tour tomorrow morning." So my wife and I turned to each other and said, "Why not?" Next morning Bill delivered and we had fun just as he promised. Highly recommend that you do the same. The free photo CD... More

If it's an amazing day on the water with a kind and knowledgeable guide your looking for give Bill a call and book one of his awesome ocean adventures. We had an absolute blast kayaking with him! He even took pictures and put them on a disk at no cost.

Bill was very friendly and helpful on the phone when I called in advance to inquire, then later book a Kayak tour for my family of 4. Bill's genuine interest in making our trip successful continued throughout our entire visit; from getting fitted for wetsuits at his shop, to the kayak tour and even later in the day when we... More
