Located in San Luis Obispo County,
Morro Bay is truly a sight to see. Morro Bay
is one of the most scenic paddling getaways on
California’s Central Coast. You’ll be amazed by the
picturesque sights you’ll feast your eyes on while
paddling. It is nearly
impossible not to be drawn to the panoramic views,
diverse nature, and abundance of wildlife that make
Morro Bay so beautiful. In addition to the wildlife,
there are beautiful wildflowers from early spring to
early summer. Kayakers flock to Morro Bay to enjoy
the bay’s deep blue waters and stunning scenery that
make this such an unforgettable paddling experience.
Kayaking on Morro Bay can be one of the most
rewarding outdoor activities you can do! It allows
you to see the harbor seals, sea lions and otters,
as well as literally hundreds of species of birds,
including several rare and endangered species.
Morro Bay provides excellent kayak fishing
opportunities for sand bass and halibut. Many types
of fish are abundant in the bay. The entire bay has
been good for sea bass. The salmon and albacore
fluctuate year to year, but albacore can add some
sizzle when schools move into the area. In the
spring, trolling anchovies for salmon is very
popular. Try live-bait drifting with anchovies for
halibut in the summer and jig fishing the shallows
for rockfish in the summer and fall.
