This was the most fun we've had in a long time! We saw amazing animals and learned a lot! Our guide Ray was very knowledgeable and we felt very safe with him! Neither of us had ever kayaked before this trip!

Wonderful experience all around! We are locals but never kayaked Shell Beach before. The cave excursion gave us a whole new perspective on an already loved place. The guides, Brent and Christian, were great. Very helpful and fun. Highly recommended!

John was a great guide and enjoyed him. In the future, we will ask for an experienced group to go with, though, because there were beginners in our group and it slowed us down.

I strongly recommend the cave tour. The tour is a great experience and if you are lucky you can even see dolphines or whales and the guides are awesome :-)

We were my husband, our 12 year old son and me. My husband and son were in one kayak and I was by myself in another one. Needles to say, nature in Pismo Beach is simply amazing: the caves, the rocks, the birds, seals, dolphins......More

John, seasoned guide of 20 years, took us through caves and kelp beds and pointed out marine life that surrounded us. Made it challenging for those who were adventurous and also didn't push those who were more r

Outstanding experience! From the time we arrived, we knew we were in good hands. The CCK team was friendly, organized, professional. They joked around and encouraged us to have fun, but always reminded us that our safety was their #1 priority. Our guides Brent and...More

Yes you have to make reservations, this can be done online. They only have a certain amount of spots each day. You arrive at 7:45 and it goes until around 11:15-11:30.
