Awesome customer service!! My whole party was raving on how much fun they had. Also very encouraging to those who are alittle scared of the water. Will definitely continue doing business with these guys.

Stopped by to rent a few boogie boards. The guy who helped us was really friendly and nice. He picked us out really NICE boards that were in great shape! He suggested a kayak trip and we explained that while that sounded great, we had our dog with us. "Not a problem!", he said. Apparently, if your dog will sit... More

We had such a great morning here with Bill and Roody. The water was calm and the wildlife was amazing. Roody was a perfect guide keeping us safe but also knowing how much thrill to add. Surfing waves on a kayak was great fun and the very cool seal who copied us was a real treat too! Thanks again for... More

We were still on the road headed for Pismo. When I told them this, they said sorry but they were not doing the 7:30 a.m. tour the next day.... More

Decided to take the whole family surfing and could not have had a better experience! Brian was an excellent instructor, the kids loved him. It couldn't have been a more beautiful day and we have memories to last a lifetime. Will definitely swing by for more surfing next year.

Excellent tour with Randy. Both kids had kayaked before, but not in the ocean. I had never kayaked so it was a great learning experience. Small group, great sites. Thanks!
