Overview
Set out on a spectacular dune buggy adventure on the sands near Pismo Beach, CA, approximately 1.5-hours north of Santa Barbara. For 2-hours you'll whip across dunes and zoom alongside the coastline past crashing waves in either a single or multi-person 4WD vehicle, enjoying what locals truly consider 'off-roading.' This is actually the only public beach in the state where driving is allowed. Instruction is included, so no need to worry if you've never ridden in a dune buggy before.

With a signed waiver anyone with drivers license can drive. Some are only 1 seaters so you would have to wait. We had a family of 4 so we got 2 one seaters and 1 two seater so we could switch while out in the dunes.

IMHO the dune buggies are much safer because they have better stability (wider wheel base), you are protected by the vehicle's cage, wear helmets and buckled up with seat belts. With the ATVs you only have the helmets... More
