The Morro Bay adventure will take you through the quaint beach community of Cayucos and the seaside community of Baywood Los Osos. You will get up close and personal with Morro Rock and its resident sea creatures. There won't be any excuses not to put your feet in the sand and watch surfers jockey for position to catch their perfect wave. Follow the curvy roads through the wet marshlands, eucalyptus forests and find yourself at Montaña De Oro State Park.
Fasten your seat belts and have your camera ready for this colorful adventure tour. Departure begins, you navigate through the city of Paso Robles heading southbound. The route to the coast is an exciting driving experience; cruise through the valleys and vineyard-covered hills and enter the twisty canyon road. The lush trees completely cover the roadway as a natural sunshade canopy. This wilderness is densely populated with giant old oak trees and generations-old farms and ranches. Whale Rock Reservoir sits just inside the coastline within the hills above Cayucos and provides gorgeous vista points and photo opportunities. The quiet seaside community of Cayucos was prehistorically inhabited by the Chumash people approximately 11,000 years B.C. Cayucos Pier and Landing was originally built in the 1870s for shipping local farms, dairy and agricultural commerce. Today it is a popular attraction on California's central coast.
Morro Rock is a 581-foot tall volcanic plug that rises above the Pacific ocean and is visible from several miles away. The giant lava dome helps protect the adjacent Morro Bay Harbor from rough and stormy seas. The harbor, huge rock and vast sand dunes are home to a spectrum of native wildlife. Resident sea otters and seals are usually seen playing in the harbor water, as the harbor is a sanctuary from the open water predators, like the great white shark.
Morro Bay Maritime Museum and Museum of Natural History welcome you to visit and learn the region's rich history. The port hosts several restaurants, eateries, gift shops and fresh fish and seafood markets. The tour continues and travels through the back bay marshland and estuary.
The sleepy community of Baywood Los Osos has the only road to Montana De Oro State Park. Montana De Oro, meaning "Mountain of Gold" in Spanish comes from the golden wildflowers found in the park. The park consists of several miles of shoreline, sandy beaches, coastal plains, streams, canyons and hills. Spooner's Cove is a popular destination with ample parking and many photo opportunities. The valley road to Montana De Oro ends at the State Park. This is the turn-around point for this adventure tour.
