When you join an expert-led tour, you’ll discover hidden gems and insider spots. It’s like having a friend in town show you the best of the coast.

Guided tours can provide an opportunity to experience the road less traveled including cruising a sandy beach via fat tire bike, exploring the site of the Mavericks big wave surf contest with a former participant, and paddling along a kayak pro who will lead you through a rich, offshore marine environment. Foodies can learn how cheese—and paint!—is made from a delightful goat farm, and boost their spirits with an artisanal distillery tour that ends with tastes of hand-crafted gin and vodka.

Farmers, surfers and tourists aren’t the only ones who roam these parts. You’ll discover our spectacular wildlife on a docent-led tour of local state and county parks which lend insight into wondrous tidepools and remarkable elephant seals which have enjoyed an extraordinary resurgence after being threatened with extinction. Plus, seasonal whale watching trips put you in the middle of one of the most visually spectacular wildlife displays on the planet, the annual migration of the mighty grey whales.

Want to explore historical sites at your own pace? Swing by our office to nab a booklet published by our local historical society that will lead you to the region’s heritage treasures, filled with tales of love, betrayal, and a ghost or two. And don’t miss our annual Farm + Fish + Flowers event which takes a limited number of lucky visitors to historic sites, farms, and nurseries not usually open to the public.
