It was so nice being out on the ocean with such beautiful views! We explored a private beach and collected seashells and other sea treasures, we... More

I called Bill and he booked me for the next day. The guides Bill and Cory handled everything very professionally with warmth and a great deal of humor, you feel very comfortable right from the beginning. It was exciting to hear Bill tell us many stories about what we were seeing - the fish below, the cliffs on the shore,... More

Great place to visit. The museum is a sample of surfing history including my 1965 Pismo Beach nose rider. My granddaughter G. G. says Tommy is the best surf instructor. Kayak tours are the greatest

This place is awesome! A hidden gem right off Pismo Beach. Definitely recommend the guided kayak tour, got to see some of the hidden caves and explore the kelp beds. The tour guide was funny and very informational. A must do adventure!
