Firstly, let me say that the scenery in Pismo Beach is breathtaking. The ocean is crystal clear, and the coastline is stunning. When I got into my kayak, I was amazed at how peaceful and serene the water was. It was the perfect environment to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings.

The tour was led by an experienced guide who was knowledgeable about the area and its wildlife. Throughout the tour, he pointed out various marine life, including seals, sea otters, and even dolphins. We also explored some hidden coves and caves, which added to the sense of adventure.

One of the highlights of the tour was when we paddled out to a large rock formation called “Seal Rock.” Here, we were able to get up close and personal with a group of seals who were sunbathing on the rocks. It was amazing to see these creatures in their natural habitat, and it was clear that they were not bothered by our presence.

Kayaking through channels
Timing the waves to glide through channels was fun but a little harder than I thought.

The tour lasted about two hours, and I have to say that it was one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had in a long time. It was a great way to get some exercise while also enjoying the beauty of nature. Plus, it was an excellent opportunity to learn more about the wildlife and ecosystem of Pismo Beach.

Tips for your Kayaking Tour in Pismo Beach

If you’re planning on going on a kayak tour in Pismo Beach, here are a few tips that I would recommend:

  • Pick a reputable tour company: Not only will they provide all of the gear you need, but their expertise will also ensure you have a fun, informative, and safe experience. We’d recommend Central Coast Kayak
  • Bring a waterproof camera: It’s more than just bringing the equipment, you also need to have it secured in a way that won’t put you at risk of injury. I used a GoPro with a chest mount and a GoPro remote on my wrist. While I thought it was a cool perspective, I would have liked to use a helmet mount.
  • Listen to your guide: Your guide is there to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable experience, so be sure to listen to their instructions and follow their lead.
