Embarcadero - Morro Bay

The Embarcadero is "downtown" Morro Bay, with restaurants and shops (buy kites). Here you can rent kayaks and bikes, go on whale watching and wildlife tours, and sunset boat cruises. Around the bay are parks, natural history museum, and lichen filled forest.
 

On the Embarcadero

      Rent sea kayaks or paddle boards and go or a spin around sheltered Morro Bay.
      In season (December to March) are gray whale watching tours.
    At Sub Sea Tours, a bright yellow boat provides an underwater view of harbor seals, shiny schools of fish, giant kelp and sea otters.
    Or, if the water isn't clear, take a wildlife tour of the estuary in an electric launch to look for sea birds and otters.
      Stop into the small Morro Bay Aquarium, to see (and feed) sea lions, and get a peek at other marine life such as brightly colored fish, pink sea anemones and orange eels.
    Tidelands Park – This is really fine playground, with pirate ship and giant octopus climbing structures, grassy areas, picnic tables, and a nice walkway along the bay.
  Museum of Natural History – Museum has hands-on exhibits about the bay, tidal flats, sand dunes, volcanic activity that created Morro Rock, marine life and wildlife around Morro Bay. Little one will enjoy the "toddler tide pool" (play with stuffed animals). Afterwards, take a walk to Windy Cove or White Point.
    Morro Bay State Park – Take advantage of Morro Bay campground, and take the trail up Black Hill for panoramic views of Morro Bay and Morro Rock.
elfin forest
  Elfin Forest – Take a walk on a one mile boardwalk loop, through a magical forest of native pygmy oaks, sagebrush, manzanita (red bark), ferns, monkey flowers, lizards, butterflies, and lichen floating in the oak trees. Watch out for poison oak, strollers okay, a fun walk for toddlers.
