Imagine embarking on a captivating kayaking adventure as the sun sets, casting a mesmerizing golden glow on the serene waters. Picture yourself paddling through the tranquil Morro Bay, leaving behind the noise and commotion of everyday life, and being awestruck by the untouched beauty of nature. This is the enchantment of kayaking in Pismo Beach.
A Twilight Journey into the Rhythm of Nature
The allure of a sunset guided kayak tour in Morro Bay lies in the unique experience it offers. As recreational users bid farewell to the bay, wildlife becomes more accessible. The fading daylight is replaced by twinkling lights from the harbor and town as you leisurely paddle through the captivating Morro Bay. The tour takes a scenic route, weaving through the bay and making a stop at the pristine sandspit dunes.
Nestled among the sand dunes, with a complimentary drink in hand and a spread of cheese, crackers, and fruit, you will witness the last rays of light before dusk settles in. Even on foggy days, the sense of tranquility that blankets the water as nightfall approaches is nothing short of breathtaking. It is an experience that will leave a lasting impression in your memory long after you leave Pismo Beach.
Wind and Cancellations
Please note that wind conditions play a significant role in determining the feasibility of a sunset paddle. While morning tours are rarely canceled due to wind, afternoon and evening tours may be affected. Approximately 10-15% of the time, sunset paddles may be canceled to ensure your safety and enjoyment.

A Comparison to Other Tours
If you are considering a morning tour, our Sunset Paddle offers a captivating alternative. While our Kayaking: Morro Bay Short Paddle and Kayaking: Half Day Classic tours begin in the morning, the Sunset Paddle allows you to immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring beauty of Morro Bay as the evening unfolds.
Covering much of the same territory as the Half Day Classic, the Sunset Paddle also includes a visit to the sand dunes. Indulge in beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages, and light eats served on the dunes, creating a more adult-oriented experience (minimum age 13). If you have younger children, don’t worry; you can still enjoy the Sunset Paddle through a private booking.
For an extra special touch, you have the option to add a California beach-style grilled dinner served on the dunes. This unique offering is typically arranged as a private tour, ensuring an unforgettable evening.
