We had a great time on this 3 hour tour. They made sure we were well equipped - waterproof jackets/pants, kayak skirts, life jackets, etc... Everything for a comfortable ride. We've kayaked before but never on the ocean so this was a very cool experience....More

I had few hours to kill before flight from SFO. Half Moon Bay is always great. You can rent a kayak, a sup or a bicycle and spend few hours.

Great fun. Our guide Sam was very knowledgable about local biology and animal life. Saw tons of seals, birds. This was a great way to see local Bay Area.

We had a great day out on the harbor trying out SUP for the first time. We stayed dry on a beautiful day. Wild life everywhere, bait balls, seals, pelicans and other birds. We had lunch right after on the pier. Very nice day out.

We rented their equipment and spent an afternoon kayaking in the harbor. The harbor - as other people have said - is great for kayaking because it is protected by a sea wall. The equipment was good, and the staff was really friendly and energetic....More
