The owner, Bill, assured me that 7 am was the best time for kayaking, and he was right! I thought I would be cold, but with the shortie wetsuit he provided I was totally fine. The water was glassy, the waves were a little high so we only did a few caves, which was fine by me. We saw tons of seals, otters, and even 2 dolphins.
Bill took our photos and provided them to us on a disk for free. He even recommended a place to stop for breakfast and coffee when we got off the ocean.
Was a perfect trip would do it again and recommend it a hundred times over. Give Bill a call and he'll hook you up!
Don't be confused by the "Pismo Beach Dive Shop" and "Pismo Beach Surf Shop" reviews on this site, they're the same thing.

We found Bill's Surf shop online and made reservation a week ahead. When we arrived to Pismo beach on a night before, we confirmed reservation with Bill. You start a tour at 7 am, and we were afraid it would be cold and foggy, but Bill assured us it would be OK, and it was. First and foremost, it felt like we were visiting family members, not just tourists. We were warm in thermal suits that Bill provided, and the next 2 hours were a real adventure of a lifetime. We would advise everybody to take this chance. You won't be disappointed

Had a great time along the cliffs of Shell Beach. The owner and guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Great tour for taking photos. All the gear was supplied that we needed. Both children and adults were welcome and everyone enjoyed themselves. Well worth the money!

My wife, 7 year old daughter and I took a dusk kayaking tour into the caves. The experience was awesome complete with dolphins, seals, and starfish. The guides were great and photographed the entire experience. If you enjoy sea life and enjoy the challenge of getting in and out of the caves without ending up in the drink then this is for you. We'll do it again next time in Pismo.
