We took the half-day kayak tour and had a wonderful trip. The itinerary is great –a visit to a wildlife sanctuary where we saw a variety of birds and some harbor seals, a visit to an oyster farm, a paddle across the bay and a hike across the sand dunes to the ocean. The paddling was generally easy, and it... More

Sunset paddle: kayak tour of Morro Bay. Starts 2 hours before sunset with good instructions and no need to step into the water (launch from the jetty). (You can get your feet wet stepping out of the kayak at the dunes, but you don't have to!) We were lucky to see so many different birds, identified by John, as well... More

The Central Coast is so picturesque! One can walk for hours and hours and still marvel at every cliff, rock formation, the beautiful ocean and life surrounding it. There is a multitude of hiking trails, some more physically demanding, other very easy walks, there are horse back riding tours and bike routes. Everyone can enjoy.

It has been a long time since we have done a bike trip and we had an amazing time. I highly recommend Central Coast Outdoors and if we are back on the west coast again, we will certainly look them up! Everything was so easy, great hotel/camps to stay at, fabulous food, excellent route maps, and really good bikes for... More

John and Craig took my family of 5, my sister's family of 4 and my brother and his son on the most magical three hikes in Big Sur. Honestly, I still cannot believe how amazing it was for all of us - aged 12-59. Cousins bonded, nephews helped aunts cross streams, we laughed hard on several occasions. We all loved... More

I am not an avid ocean kayaker, I have been on two other trips, and I thought this was fantastic! Mandy was clearly very passionate about her job and the wildlife and history of the area. We saw tons of wildlife, including seals and a sea otter and many birds. The views were sensational and the kayaking was nice and... More

John and Virginia organized the most amazing cycling routes and places to stay. The food and support were second to none. This all made for the most unforgettable trip with my son. We will be back for more! Thank you!

My family spent 2 days riding with Central Coast Outdoors in the area around SLO and had a great trip. We aren't experienced riders so we really appreciated Virginia and John's help and guidance. My wife and I spent the first afternoon pedaling through Edna Valley where Virginia helped us get comfortable with the bikes and roads, then took us... More

Our 4 day biking trip along the Big Sur Coast was outstanding! CCO provided excellent service. They provided a private, individualized trip at an extremely reasonable price. We enjoyed delicious picnic lunches tailored for a gluten free diet. I highly recommend CCO.

We just completed a self-guided bike tour, so CCO essentially served as our outfitter. Great service for the money. The fee they charge isn't all that much more than shipping your bike out west and back, and their service comes with detailed maps and route support. CCO is a great company. They genuinely cared that it might rain during our... More
