I was looking for something to do with two teenage girls. This was a fantastic solution. The girls had a blast, Bill was a positive instructor making the girls quickly gain confidence and the ability to stand a catch some fun waves.

We stopping in 6 months ago to browse through the 1000s of knicknacks and antiques and were told about the sea cave kayaking the shop has as well. We came back and took them up on their offer for the kayak tour and could not have been happier! We got up close to a big, fuzzy otter, got to explore the sea caves and had some fun navigating passages and kelp beds. We stopped along the beach and our experienced guide, Randy, helped us search for seaglass and agates. Nothing but good things to say and highly recommend this tour for any level kayaker!

My mom and I went out with Bill on a tandem kayak for my birthday (go 60!). What an amazing time. He knows the area, he knows the surf, and gives a great tour. We will be back next year.

This was the best kayaking trip we’ve ever been on! Randy took us through a ton of caves and to about 5 different beaches that could only be accessed by kayak. The bird watching and beach combing were phenomenal!

Nuff said, You kayak through caves and rock outcroppings. You will see a lot of birds and seals, travel across kelp beds, and possibly see otters, dolphins and even whales. Quirky surf shop is packed with stuff. Wet suit, and equipment is included. Guides will take pictures and upload them online or burn a disc for you. Guides know where to get the good shots, and the good places to venture through. I would do this again, and would encourage any visiting family members to check it out.

I went on a solo trip to Pismo Beach and wanted to kayak and check out the ocean side caves. The grandfather and grandson duo at Pismo Beach surf shop made it happen. They lead an excellent tour, had great energy, and over all we're super kind folks. I highly recommend this shop and there services to anyone passing through Pismo Beach! Thanks guys!

We had an awesome time on this tour. Bill suggested that because of the weather that we wait to take the tour the next morning. Great idea - the water was calm, and tide was low. Ryan was an awesome guide. Would definitely do it again!

Loved the shop as well - lots of cool stuff to look at. :)

Absolutely cannot say enough good things about Bill and the gang at Pismo beach sure shop. We scheduled self guided kayaks, but Bill suggested a tour when the weather changed. Amazing choice. His guidance on the tour was fabulous and lead us to awesome sea life, while keeping our teens entertained. Highly recommend Bill and the shop.
