Mostly the same 5 star review as others. Cubby is awesome and the cove is lovely. There is no guarantee of wild life, but we did see a male sea otter and seals on the beach. We were lucky that the tide was low and sea calm so we could go into some of the caves with the kayaks --... More

We loved our kayak trip to the sea caves! The staff was friendly, energetic and helpful and got us launched into the ocean without capsizing! I highly recommend this experience for all families! It is affordable fun and the sea caves are close, so it is not overly strenuous. Perfect, beautiful day and balanced out our Hearst Castle tour with... More

This was the first time my husband and I had ever thought about kayaking on the ocean. When we arrived they were so kind! Before going out on the ocean, he made sure we knew what we were doing and what to do. Once in the cove, it was breath taking. The seals following us around, the pelicans diving into... More

This was the first time my wife and I have ever been ocean kayaking. Cubby, owner and guide, was so helpful, knowledgeable, and all around great guy. He made our three hour trip fun and full of adventure. He was able to point out sea otters, harbor seals, sea lions, many aquatic creatures of the kelp forests, and creatures of... More

We were a large group (8) and did the San Simeon Cove Tour. For $50 each it's a deal! Fun time on the water: whale sting, up close with otters, history lesson, chance to kayak into a cave and a great work out. It is a must do! Cubby, Billy and Bobby our guides were wonderful. Cubby provided a ton... More

Well, I'm only going to confirm what all the other people who have reviewed Sea for Yourself Kayak Outfitters (and gone on a tour with Cubby) have said. It was amazing! My husband and I are pretty experienced kayakers, but we had never kayaked in the Pacific. We really wanted to learn about the ecology, weather, and currents of the... More

Great service and fun via this kayaking experience. Cubby is very knowledgeable about weather, wind patterns, kayaking tips, and more. We went through a good part of the cove, seeing some hidden beaches and going through or into caves. We did get out into the open ocean for a bit. Saw a grey whale from the shore, male and female...

Cubby's a cool guy, and the location is world class beauty. I'm pretty much ruined for other places now, because they don't measure up. You won't be disappointed...

We did a 3 hour kayak trip and had a fabulous time. The owner is extremely knowledgable about the ocean, it's inhabitants and ecological surroundings and relays his passion for all of it to you in a fun and interesting trip. Thanks for a great time - we'll be back
