Kayak Morro Bay with Us

Kayaking Morro Bay with an expert nature guide from Central Coast Outdoors ensures you will see the wonders of this extraordinary National Estuary. You can kayak Morro Bay in all its moods, sharing it with wildlife like harbor seals, sea lions and sea otters, as well as literally hundreds of species of birds, including several rare and endangered species. Please click on any of the individual kayak tour links on this page to find the best Morro Bay kayak tour for you.



The waters of Morro Bay are protected from the open ocean by a scenic four mile long sandspit and the weather is moderate year round, creating an ideal place for beginners, families and experts to kayak. Our kayak trips in Morro Bay California are also well suited for youth groups and business or corporate groups. Our experienced and knowledgeable guides enhance any excursion you'll have on the water with us. We normally have a low client to guide ratio (no more than 8:1), so you'll never feel like you are lost in a crowd. Join us on one of our kayak trips on Morro Bay and experience one of the best kayak trips in California.

“Our experience with your company was amazing. From our first phone call to leaving the dock after the trip, everything was wonderful. You and your guides were personable, knowledgeable and accommodating. Our family had a wonderful time, learned a ton, and my partner and I are hooked on kayaking... Thanks for an incredible experience!”
