Virginia is a great guide! Super patient and knowledgable about local wild life. She took great care of our group and showed us a variety of birds and wild life living in Morro Bay. We had so much fun! Sea otters are my favorite!

This place has sit inside kayaks as far as I've seen all the other places only have sit on tops. The workers are very nice and pointed out oyster beds for us to check out. Make note of winter hours.
