We had a great time on the Cave Excursion outing; the guides were very experienced and skilled at leading us through the caves, explaining and demonstrating how to navigate the waves, etc., and making sure everyone had a safe, fun experience.

I knew I was out of shape, but dang this experience really slapped me in the face with that fact. Overall, it was really fun! Going through all the caves and seeing otters from a distance was amazing.

Tom was very helpful in setting up the reservation. We were a group of 4, all with kayak experience though skill levels varied and only one or two had a bit of rock gardening experience. Andrew gave us a great cave tour, customized to our skill and adventure levels. He explained the path through the pour-overs and caves, always gave us the option to go around, stepped in to help when needed. He did a very good job of starting with less challenging obstacles and building until we had all the adventure we wanted. It was great fun and a great learning experience.

I chose to celebrate my wife's bday in Pismo Beach and I knew we couldn't leave without doing something outdoorsy/adventurous. So I booked a cave excursion tour and we had Kristian as our tour guide. It was our first time but we weren't the only first timers. We payed attention and asked questions which Kristian welcomed and encouraged. He also made us feel confident as we embarked on our kayaking journey. Thank you to all at Central Coast Kayaks! We are still talking about our experience till this day!!

We were visiting Cal Poly and wanted to do something fun while we were there. I am glad the zipline tours were sold out as we had an awesome time on the Cave Excursion Kayak with Kristian and Noah. Great customer service over the phone. One of our sons wasn't sure if he was joining us so I added him late. I'd forgotten to do the final call to add him and Kristian called me as we were driving there the day before to check if he would be joining us. There was another group of 3 with our foursome that were beginners so they slowed us down a little, but we still did all the caves and had a great time. Maybe they kept us from getting sore as we stopped a bit more while we waited for them. It is so much easier in a single kayak so don't do the tandem. I loved having wetsuits as other kayak tours I have done in the past did not provide them. It was also a nice perk to get photos included in the tour price sent by Dropbox. I've brought my own waterproof cameras on other tours and this is so much better. We saw otters, harbor seals and sea lions and Kristian had lots of good information on the wildlife. I highly recommend and will be back!
