The owner, Bill, was wonderful! He was very accommodating and happy to move our scheduled Kayak tour date when a storm moved in from Alaska! We would have been miserably cold kayaking in the rain and wind! Bill was happy to move it to fit our schedule. Very relaxed but professional and fun! Also, they gave us a DVD full... More

Took the kayaking tour with Bill and Tommy -- three generations of our family had a great time on the kayaks and all went in the water one way or another! The guides are nice guys, no pressure, very relaxed and encouraging to first time solo (13 years old) and knew those more experienced could do more so they adapted... More

We met with Bill, the owner of the shop and he helped us to determine the type of suits that would be appropriate for us to... More

This was my second time kayaking and my Mom's first time. We had a blast. The owner of the shop was our tour guide, he was the best. He made sure we were all safe and educated on what to do. There was another couple that joined us that was a bit apprehensive but at the end of the tour... More

Kayaking with Bill last two hours and is well worth it to get a real flavour of life amongst the kelp beds .he balanced fun with safety and provided a CD of photos that he took. He is a real character and it's well worth doing if staying in Pismo .His yard of stuff is well worth a look too.!

Our kids would never have jumped at the chance to kayak through caves, but wanted to do one activity for our short beach getaway. Highly recommend the pm kayak cave tour. We have relatively low kayak experience. The ocean was calm, no wind and the sun is low. Saw seals very close (apparently 3 seals in particular are very friendly... More

Went kayaking and abalone diving with Bill in Fort Bragg. Had the absolute best time! Bill is one of the nicest guys and was very accommodating since this was our first time in the area.We've had great trips along the coastline thanks to Bill including, Fort Bragg, Shell Beach, Refugio, and Pismo Beach. Can't recommend Bill's Pismo Beach Dive Shop.... More

WOW! this place has everything! If you took one part dive shop, one part surf shop, one part kayak rental outfit, one part museum, one part sculpture/glass/collectibles shop, and one part Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, you'd have Pismo Beach Dive and Surf Shop. Full service PADI dive shop, ethical service and prices. They have more boards than any other shop... More

Bill the owner himself took me out to a reef off of Shell beach and it was astounding! Using his vast experience, Bill instructed me on diving off of the Kayak in a safe and easy manner. Taking a kayak is a much easier way to access some great diving just of the shore of the central coast rather than... More
