“Beautiful day touring the Morro Bay Estuary”

Central Coast Kayaks
Ranked #1 of 8 Tours in Pismo Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 15, 2012

A great family activity and one where you can take in the beauty of the California coast ecosystems. Our guides were extremely knowledgable in both the kayaking (good for first time kayakers) and knowledge and respect of the surrounding environment. On our tour as promised in the website amd brochures we saw lots of sea life from harbor seals, bat rays, turkey vultures, comorants and pelicans. Took the tour with the lunch option and had a nice picnic lunch on the sandspit before paddling back to the docks. A highly memorable and educational day!

Whether you're a novice or an experienced kayak-er, this is the place. The owner and his staff are very knowledgeable, and obviously love their jobs. They made recommendations on the size and type of kayaks we needed, and the boys delivered the kayaks to the beach, gave us a short lesson on how to kayak, and helped us push off. They also told us which sea animals had been spotted that day, and what the tides and winds were like. Wet suits and booties are available for rent, and the prices for everything are very reasonable, including T-shirts. Water proof cameras are available for purchase, and we recommend buying one- you'll be amazed at what you see! Reservations are helpful but not always necessary. Remember to tip the boys!

I have been up to the central coast many times but never got around to doing a tour with central coast kayaks. This time made sure I left time in my schedule to do it. I'm so glad I did. They provide you will all of the gear including booties, wetsuit, helmet, sunscreen, etc.. The day I went the swells were less than foot, it was like kayaking on a lake. The landscapes from the ocean were beautiful. Saw a ton of marine life including seals and dolphins. Went inside to several different caves and even stopped for a snack on a remote beach only accessed from the water. Great adventure with friendly guide(john was our guide) who even takes pictures of the outing that you get on a cd when the trip is over.

These guys build up your confidence and they know the area so well. Amazing fun day, so much to see. Live the fact they give military discount and burn a cd of pics from your trip. I will be going back!

CCK is awesome! The cave tours are amazing, going over the swells is exhilarating and you don't have to have any prior experience. The staff provide great instruction and are very helpful. A definite must do for anyone in the area. Take the tour!
