Last update 1/27/21 - Regional Stay at Home Order LIFTED!

We are OPEN and SAFE!

The Regional Stay at Home Order was lifted a few days ago. Our area is currently under Purple Tier restrictions. Restaurants can offer outdoor dining and wineries are allowed to offer outdoor tastings as well. We are allowed to be open and offer tours with the same COVID protocols we were operating under from most of last year. Some tours may have additonal restrictions.


Status of Different Tour Types

Guided Kayak Tours - OPEN. No restrictions except masks required while on the kayak docks.

Guided Day Bike Tours - OPEN. For winery bike tours we usually need to make tasting reservations ahead of time. Some wineries may also require us to eat food from their menu instead of our typical picnic lunch.

Guided Day Hike Tours - CLOSED.  Our hikes in SLO County (Montana de Oro and Estero Bluffs) are closed due to perennial permit issues. Our Hiking: Big Sur Ecotour is closed until further notice due to fire damage caused by the Dolan Fire at Lime Kiln State and at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, as well as the closure of Highway One at Rat Creek due to winter storm damage.

Support Vehicle Charter Multi-Day Bike Tours - OPEN. But some hotels may be reluctant to book leisure travel.

Self Guided Multi-day Bike Tours - OPEN. Hotel trips are currently OK, but some hotels may be more reluctant to book leisure travel. Camping trips may need to spend certain nights in hotel as not all campgrounds are open. Here is list of California state park campgrounds that are open.
