Group Tours (Youth Group and Corporate)
For youth groups or corporate travel groups, Central Coast Outdoors is the answer to getting your group outside and having FUN in the SLO County and Big Sur areas! For group travel tours, don't let your youth, school or business group get stuck in a rut in San Luis Obispo County. The Central Coast has a whole wild and unspoiled natural world to offer beyond the traditional Hearst Castle or winery tour. And we can help connect you with that world. Being in nature doesn't mean you have to rough it, however. From waterproof lap blankets on our kayak tours to gourmet picnic lunches on all types of tours, we will pamper you as well. For youth, school or corporate tours in SLO County, Morro Bay or Big Sur look no farther than an excursion planned by the expert staff at Central Coast Outdoors.
School and Youth Groups
Our outdoors tours, especially our Kayaking: Morro Bay Half Day Classic or our Kayaking: Morro Bay Short Paddle, are very popular with youth and school groups. Central Coast Outdoors guides are well versed in providing an educational experience that is also fun! Many scout troops as well as middle school and high school groups have done tours with us. We can usually accommodate up to about 50 people on any of our guided Morro Bay kayak tours. If your group has a special focus, we can also create a custom tour or outing for you. All groups of ten or more qualify for our 20% group discount on any of our kayak tours. And, all youth/school groups with 20 or more qualify for a special rate of $48 per person for our Kayaking: Half Day Classic tour, which is our most popular tour for youth/school groups.
Business and Corporate Groups
Looking to get your office group or business meeting group outside for some fun in the SLO County or Big Sur area? Look no further than Central Coast Outdoors. We can do everything from a 1-2 hour kayak trip or hike to a multi-day multi-sport trip including lodging and food. Your corporate travel group can work with an existing package tour or we can help you create a trip tailored to your group's needs. Our Morro Bay kayak tours also offer opportunities for team building, from having two co-workers in a tandem to more complicated on the water objectives. Have fun and meet your goals at the same time!
“John and his team at Central Coast Outdoors were wonderful to work with. Being out of state was never a concern, as every detail was handled in a timely and professional manner. He was more than willing to customize their regular tours to accommodate our needs and went out of his way to ensure a memorable experience. I would highly recommend them for any opportunity you have!”
