What People are Saying...
On a trip across California we came across this fantastic experience. I can honestly say that it was one of the highlights of our trip! Mary was a fantastic teacher for us complete newbies, and not only teaching us how to SUP, health and safety but also gave us a little nature tour of the bay which we found so interesting!
My son and I rented paddle boards here and it was the best experience! The store recommended a time for us the following morning when the winds are usually low and the water was smooth and wonderful. We received great instruction prior to launching off of a little beach area where all of the equipment was set up for us and ready to go.
Loved the staff, the setting, and the equipment. Great rates too! Thanks for a great experience!!
Went with a group of friends for the 2 hour nature tour and it was so much more than we could have ever expected! The instructor Mary is incredibly kind and helpful. She was very helpful and encouraging in helping a friend that was new to paddle boarding but was still able to provide us with a lot of cool information about the Bay and the plants and animals living in it. We had an absolute blast and it was SUCH a deal.
We found out that Morro Bay Paddlesports rented kayaks so tried them for the first time. The couple could not have been nicer or more helpful. They really care about what they do and that you are safe and outfitted properly. The kayaks were in excellent condition and they included brand new vests which were a modern version that didn't have all the cumbersome straps. They took care to advise on the currents and tide conditions. I highly recommend this place!
We received a great introduction, the equipment was in excellent condition (super clean wetsuits if you rent one which is nice to have on cloudy days in July) and the team was smart, funny and incredibly knowledgeable about boarding but also the local biology.
PS... the shop associated with this team is also wonderful! It has a great selection of paddle boarding supplies but also some well-designed clothing!
