John was punctual, friendly, and took us on a beautiful tour of wine country. John went out of his way by to give us the best experience. The bike was excellent, very smooth shifting. The picnic at the end was delicious homemade food which they catered to our dietary preferences. We were not rushed, plenty of time to visit wineries... More

We have been using Central Coast Outdoors for kayak tours with our freshman for the last 6 years! They are professional, safe, and tell you a ton about the bay and the local flora and fauna. We appreciate the work they do to accomodate us and adjust when our schedule has a hickup.

We did a double header with Central Coast Outdoors as we did the Bike Wine Tour in the morning and then then Sunset Kayak trip the evening of September 20. The Bike Wine tour was led by John and Craig and was outstanding. Though we caught a very warm day for this part of the season they made it great... More

We went on the Half-Day Classic kayak tour of Morro Bay on Thursday, Sept. 15, with John, the owner/founder of Central Coast Outdoors. The group consisted of just myself and my 23-year-old daughter. I suggest bringing a windbreaker, which you may need even on hot days. In our case, the time on the bay didn't really require the windbreaker, but... More

This was our third trip with CCO. As always, they provide excellent support for our multi-day bike rides. They will customize the right bike ride for your ability and interest. John and Craig escorted us with their usual mix of thoroughness, knowledge and good humor, along with energizing snacks and a gourmet lunch. We are already planning our next trip... More

This is a second time we were taking tours with this company and we highly recommend them. From the very first contact and telephone conversations with John (one of the co-owners) to all big and small logistical details everything was done perfectly. Our guide, Craig was everything you could wish in a guide and more, - informative and personable, relaxed... More

Great morning spent Kayaking on the bay with two teenagers, it more than held their attention. Craig was an excellent guide and really informative about the wildlife and local history. Even got to see a Sea Otter out in the surf.

We visit the Central Coast from the Los Angeles area every couple of months. Thursday night has a great Farmer's Market in San Luis Obispo, there is plenty of great food in the SLO and Morro Bay area, and there's the great outdoor world of hiking. We've seen quite a few deer and hawks/falcons in the area, and love the... More

We enjoyed a perfect morning exploring Morro Bay by kayak with Central Coast Outdoors. Virginia Flaherty, co-owner, was our guide. She was knowledgeable, fun, and provided just the right amount of information. We were amazed by all of the wildlife that we saw.
