Our guide Bill was quick to get us suited up and out to the beach. I appreciated the fact that we didn't sit around. We just came from Cancun and everyone in Mexico was on a different timetable than we are up here. In Mexico we sat around, sometimes for hours, before actually leaving to go to the excursion location.... More

From there we kayaked through caves and along the coast getting really close to the amazing birds and sea animals. The seals came to play and the sun shone on... More

We had an amazing time and Bill made sure that we were safe, challenged appropriately and got to see as much sea life as possible We saw seals, an otter playing right next to our kayaks and a beautiful...

Bill, the owner, was very pleasant to work with. We scheduled a Shell Beach kayak tour in July. A freak storm came in and it was touch and go whether we could kayak or not. Bill was very flexible, giving us a water/weather report and his opinion on the likely conditions - then allowed us the choice of kayaking or... More

After talking about it for a long time I decided to go on an ocean kayak adventure with my boyfriend. We are both ocals in the area and had been talking about going together. Bill got us outfitted with all the gear we needed (spring suit, booties, helmet) and a tandem kayak (we had the option to do singles or... More

We had an amazing time on our kayak tour of the dinosaur caves in Pismo Beach. Our tour guide Bill was awesome and made us feel very safe and in good hands.

Just completed our first ever kayak tour. Our guide Bill was a ton of fun and we completely enjoyed the trip. We had so much fun we are buying kayaks from them real soon! Highly recommend this tour anytime you in the area. Lots of sea life including whales and great view of the coast line.

I called in last minute with a sea cave kayak tour request for two. The owner Bill took a friend and me out personally, just the three of us. He was a funny guy and provided great instruction for us as we are beginners. He even brought out his digital camera and got some great snapshots of us. He showed... More

I went on the guided 3 hour sea cave kayaking tour with a group of friends on Easter weekend. Bill and his staff did a fantastic job. Our group had both experienced and inexperienced kayakers and we all had a blast. They cater to all the different skill levels, so each person had the option whether to enter a particular... More
