This classic half day kayaking tour of Morro
Bay is our most popular trip, and with good reason! After you drive
along the coast to Morro Bay and the meeting point your tour begins. An easy morning
of paddling takes in a heron rookery, the bird haven of Grassy
Island, as well as chances to see otters and seals. After taking all
this wildlife in, we beach our kayaks on a secluded part of the
outer sandspit for a fun dunes hike to a hidden Chumash shell midden.
A short walk past the midden, we come to the Pacific Ocean and
unparalleled views up and down miles of secluded beach.
Back on the bay side of the dunes, you'll either return to your
kayak for the short paddle back to the kayak docks or linger a while
longer for a gourmet picnic lunch including complimentary wines from
Vina Robles and locally brewed beers. The picnic lunch is highly
recommended and the perfect way to round out one of the best
outdoors experiences on the entire California coast. This trip is
designed with beginners and family groups in mind and includes basic
paddle and safety instruction at the start of the tour. Total
paddling time is about 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
Do I need to have prior kayaking
Absolutely not! Our kayak tours and kayak trips on Morro Bay are
designed to accommodate beginners as well as experienced kayakers.
In fact, about half of our participants have never even kayaked
What kind of kayaks do you use?
We use traditional "sit inside" kayaks. These tend to be drier, more
comfortable and perform better on the relatively flat water of Morro
Bay than "sit on top" kayaks. We offer single or double kayaks,
depending on your preference.
Do I need special gear?
No. Although you will get a little wet, wetsuits or other special
gear are not required. Our recommendations:
1. Wear footwear that can get wet and muddy.
2. Avoid blue jean long pants or cotton sweat pants. These can soak
and hold water, making you wet and cold. Wear shorts or lightweight
3. Bring a jacket - a windbreaker or waterproof jacket is best.
What time of year is best?
Morro Bay is a great year round kayaking destination. The weather is
mild all year. April through October is virtually rain free. In
winter, there is a possibility of rain, but the rain tends to be
infrequent and storms are often separated by days or weeks of clear
weather. Winter is also the best time to see the incredible
diversity of migrating birds that call Morro Bay home for that part
of the year.
