Great fun at Morro Bay

Staff were friendly, helpful and made for a great hour canoeing out in the Morro Bay. Saw plenty of otters and seals.

My husband and I rented a 2 man kayak last week and had a great experience. The man who helped us (wish I had gotten his name) was so incredibly friendly and helpful- he gave us great advice on where to go and how best to navigate the tide and use our hour wisely. They have a space to store... More

We went on a whale watching tour with Sub Sea tours and it was so great! We would have been happy to have seen one or two whales from a distance, but the expert crew on the boat guided us towards the middle of a whole group of whales, which took about an hour sailing. It was one of the... More

We booked the morning trip - had breakfast in the diner at the harbour and watched the sea otters. The Captain and his mate were really enthusiatic, knowledgeable and entertaining - which made the trip great. We spotted humpback whales and followed at a respectful distance. Just before we headed in, we came to within about 20 feet of two... More

We were staying at San Luis Obispo and wanted somewhere close by to Whalewatch. Booked this on the net the night before. When we arrived my heart sank because there was a real sea fog. We could hear sealions in the harbour but could not see them through the mist. Whilst waiting we saw a couple of sea otters .... More

Great whale watching trip. We took the afternoon excursion since the morning trip was booked. We checked at 10:30 to see what the weather and water appeared to be. Everything was calm and clear. However, by the time we left 2 hours later a layer of fog had rolled in and a little chopiness had begun. The crew did a... More

Had THE best time whale watching out of Morro Bay last Sunday, 9/25/2016. Saw all kinds of whales, seal lions, birds. Were so close to the whales we could hear them breathing! I can't stop telling people about what an awesome trip we had. Can not WAIT to get back!

We wanted to just chill out for 45 mins so took this tour around the bay. It is reasonably priced and they show around some lions, sea otters and buildings, Morro rock and coastal buildings. It is unique because you can go down in the boat and see fishes from glass window, so this small boat allows both upper deck... More
