How to Reserve a Trip
Reservations are required, but reserving a day trip is easy! Payment in full is normally asked for at the time of reservation, unless other arrangements have been made. There are several ways to reserve a trip:
  1. Call us at 805.528.1080
  2. Submit a reservation 24 hours a day with our on-line reservation system.

“I wanted to say how much we both enjoyed our kayaking trip in Morro Bay with you and your colleague. As busy people who both work hard and travel a lot on business, vacation time is extremely precious to us, so your professionalism, patience and enthusiasm made the trip all the more enjoyable... I'm sure this won't be the last trip to the area...”

Gift Certificates

We are happy to offer gift certificates. Buying a day trip for one or two people makes an excellent gift for that outdoors enthusiast on your list. Just call us up and we can do a gift certificate over the phone with a credit card. We'll mail you the gift certificate, as well as a brochure with a link to our website so your excited friend or family member can check out everything we have to offer. Call 805-528-1080.


All prices quoted are per person. See below for youth discounts.

Payment Information

For day trips we normally ask for payment in full at the time of reservation. If the day trip you are reserving is more than one month away, instead of payment in full you may request to pay a $15 per person deposit to secure the space and pay the remaining balance one week prior to the tour. If you wish to to utilize the deposit and remaining balance system, please phone us direct at 805.528.1080 as our online reservation system is only set up for opayment in full at time of booking. For multi-day trips more than one month from the time of reservation or large group trips, we usually ask for a 20% deposit and have several options for final payment. We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover (no American Express) as well as check or cash.

Confirmation Packet

After the deposit is received a Confirmation Packet is sent to you. The packet includes more information about the trip, including a recommended clothing and gear list and a "Release of Liability, Assumption of All Risks, and Arbitration Agreement" that must be signed and in our possession prior to the trip start.

Cancellations by Us

Once you have received a confirmation of reservation from us, we make every effort to run the trip. However, occasionally we need to cancel a trip and we reserve the right to do so. If anyone has signed up for a trip that we cancel, we will notify them promptly and offer a full refund or the opportunity to transfer to another trip. Central Coast Outdoors is not responsible for any expenses incurred in preparation for any cancelled trips, including air fare.

Cancellations by You

If you have to cancel a day trip for any reason, the following refund schedule applies, except for bad weather on a day trip - see below.

Days Prior to Start Cancellation Fee/Person
8+ DaysNone
4-7 Days$15
0-3 DaysFull Cost of Trip

There are no refunds for leaving a trip early or for not using any of the services that are part of the trip. If you want to transfer to another trip or another date, you may do so free of charge for day trips more than one day prior to the trip start.

Our cancellation policy for multi-day trips and large group single day trips may be different. Please consult your confirmation packet or contract.

Cancellation Policy Due to Bad Weather

If the weather is really bad on the morning of a day trip, you have three choices. First, continue with the planned activities (perhaps with alternate activities worked in). Second, transfer with no additional fees to the same trip in the future. Third, cancel entirely with a $15 per person cancellation fee. We always wait until the morning of the trip to make this decision because weather forecasts are not always 100% accurate. If the weather is so bad that it is a safety issue, the guide will cancel the trip and there will be a full refund.

“Jennifer and I had a great time! The food was excellent. The guides showed great skill in their level of involvement. Because of the excellent service we are looking forward to a return trip to Morro Bay. Five stars!”
