For a true SLO CAL coastal experience, embark on one of the many boating or water tours and enjoy this region from a different perspective.
With SLO CAL's coast running along PCH, you can find boating and water tours featuring boats of all sizes and types, from sailboats and catamarans to yachts and more. Boating companies also offer a wide variety of tours. Looking to spot whales—grey whales, blue whales or even humpbacks—during SLO CAL’s whale season? Set sail on a whale-watching adventure with a tour departing from Morro Bay or Avila Beach. Or take a coastal exploration tour, and learn the fascinating history of the coast as you catch views of marine wildlife—otters, seals, pelicans and other sea birds are frequently seen on any boating or water tour. Knowledgeable, experienced sailors provide insight into the breathtaking beauty surrounding you.
Other tour options include subsea tours, where you can look beneath the water’s surface from windows on the boat’s bottom, elegant brunch cruises and sportfishing excursions, which can be half day, full day or even overnight.
With ever-changing wind and weather conditions at the coast, boat tours are truly an adventure, where no two sailings are ever the same. Whatever boating and water tour option you choose, you’ll be experiencing SLO CAL like never before.
