Plan on spending some time here, there's lots to look at!! Didn't rent SUP's from him it was too rough in Pismo, but even if you aren't looking to rent or five with them it's worth going to see a little piece of Pismo surf history, and Bill is super cool to talk to!!!

It's a neat shop of nick nacks that are hard to come by. We bought a mermaid statue that you'll never find elsewhere! The owner, is a surfer-cool nice guy. We made some kind of wheel & deal & Bill, the owner, didn't have any second thoughts & gave in. Please stop by to check out the shop & you... More

My wife and I had our 10 year old daughter on vacation with us. Pismo Beach Dive Shop accommodated us having a younger child, which the other popular kayak tour biz in the area refused to do. Bill was our guide and he made us feel right at home even though it was our first time kayaking. We not only... More

The owner, Bill, was wonderful! He was very accommodating and happy to move our scheduled Kayak tour date when a storm moved in from Alaska! We would have been miserably cold kayaking in the rain and wind! Bill was happy to move it to fit our schedule. Very relaxed but professional and fun! Also, they gave us a DVD full... More

Took the kayaking tour with Bill and Tommy -- three generations of our family had a great time on the kayaks and all went in the water one way or another! The guides are nice guys, no pressure, very relaxed and encouraging to first time solo (13 years old) and knew those more experienced could do more so they adapted... More

We met with Bill, the owner of the shop and he helped us to determine the type of suits that would be appropriate for us to... More

This was my second time kayaking and my Mom's first time. We had a blast. The owner of the shop was our tour guide, he was the best. He made sure we were all safe and educated on what to do. There was another couple that joined us that was a bit apprehensive but at the end of the tour... More

Kayaking with Bill last two hours and is well worth it to get a real flavour of life amongst the kelp beds .he balanced fun with safety and provided a CD of photos that he took. He is a real character and it's well worth doing if staying in Pismo .His yard of stuff is well worth a look too.!

Our kids would never have jumped at the chance to kayak through caves, but wanted to do one activity for our short beach getaway. Highly recommend the pm kayak cave tour. We have relatively low kayak experience. The ocean was calm, no wind and the sun is low. Saw seals very close (apparently 3 seals in particular are very friendly... More
