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.

Teens wanted to paddle board in the bay, but were advised the water was a bit to choppy and they might be risking a soaking. So instead they soaked each other racing in kayaks. My daughter and I took a nice canoe and we went...More

When we visit our son at Cal Poly, we usually hit a local trail for a family outdoor activity. However the weekend we were here, the temperature was in the mid 90s- a bit too hot to hike. I suggested we head to Morro Bay...More
