Best time to Visit

by Nicckie

I recently visited Morro Bay - we had a great time, but it was a quick trip and a bit chilly. It rained the first day we were there. I'd like to go back and go kayaking and spend time at the beach. What's the best time of year to go for lots of sun and warm days?

Early summer or early fall are good. Mid-summer it can be very busy. It is a nice place isn't it?

Super fun! We stayed at the Inn at Morro Bay, which had a private jacuzzi on the balcony of our room and we were at the south end right next to the National Estuary. It was so cool to wake up to all the unique bird calls.

Thanks for the timing info!

Morro Bay is warmest in late September and early October. My wife and I love the Inn at Morro Bay and now most of the rooms have a hot tub. The early evening hours called "happy hours" and the bar at the Inn has a great view of the bay, Morro Rock and the sunset. I have a tip for a kayak company in my VT Morro Bay pages:

Travel Tips for Morro Bay

The Rock

by Skibbe

The town of Morro Bay is across from Morro Rock, a mariner's navigational landfall for centuries. The rock is a short walk from the town and is a nice place to view the ocean, walk along the beach, or surf. Sitting on a rock and watching a seal come nearer and nearer.


by travelgourmet about GREAT AMERICAN FISH COMPANY

This is the place in Morro Bay for seafood and a view. Located on the water at the embarcadero with the boats tied up right in front of the tables at the bay windows makes the food seem even fresher than it is. The style and ambiance is a sailor's delight with a nautical theme of beautiful heavy wood beams and model ships and ocean decor throughout. A hang out bar that does not intrude on the dining room is also a top spot for local fishermen. It is crowded at lunchtime and on weekends, a reservation helps. The clam chowder soup is rich and creamy with a good portion of clams that make a clam chowder a real chowder. If a restaurant has a great soup, it usually follows that the main course will be good as well. Great American Fish Company has some great dishes and some I felt needed a little help with either a lower price or more food on others.

I know that eating too much or having too much on the plate isn't healthy, but hey, this is a seafood location and my mixed fish plate better be full. It wasn't, so I give it a 3 rating. Improvement needed in price point. I must give the quality a 5 rating, overall. Still worth the trip.

One of the things that I found not only fun to watch but exciting as well, was to sit on the dock by the bay in anticipation of spotting a sea otter. Oh, the occasional seal would swim by, stick its head up and give a bark, but that wasn't what I was looking for. You can find the sea otter at many aquariums but seeing one in the open water is a treat.

The population of the sea otter was up to a million until the fur trade almost wiped out the entire species. In the early 1900's as few as 1,000 sea otters were to be found in the entire world. A small comeback is now here due to sea otters being put on the endangered list. Worldwide, there are now an estimated 100,000 sea otters and of that amount under 3,000 are southern sea otters, which if you are lucky, you may see frolicking in Morro Bay. I was lucky enough to spot one who rolled over on its back and was trying to break open a clam. I wish I had a telephoto lens on my camera to capture the sea otter close up, but I did get a photo of a southern sea otter. Maybe next time I will have a telephoto lens ready.

Morro Bay Power Plant

by atufft

Three of the more disappointing but hard to miss features of Morro Bay are the 450 foot tall smokestacks that rise from the Morro Bay Power Plant right near the scenic rock. The plant is owned by Texas energy giant Duke Energy, but feeds power to the Pacific Gas and Electric System Grid right off the plant grounds. Fortunately, there are plans to reduce the number of smoke stacks to two shorter ones, and change over to a state of the art natural gas generation system which will actually also raise power production slightly. Currently units 1 & 2 are 1950's technology, while units 3 & 4 are 1960's technology. The modernization plan will have two 150 foot tall clean burning exhaust stacks, sea water will continue to be drawn from Morro Bay as a coolant in a once through system that has an ocean outfall at Estero Bay. See the link below for more detailed public information.

Morro Bay - first visit

by cindygoescoconuts

"Hangin' out at the beach"

The beach was great. Ocean lovers will feel right at home here. The water was nice and there were alot of shells, sand dollars and polished rocks to collect. It wasn't crowded either, but we were there during the middle of the week.

"Whale watching"

We went for a three hour tour and ended up on Gilligan's Island. Nah, just kidding. We had a great time watching a mother humpback and her calf. Some Menke whales showed up, too.


Night after night, gorgeous sunsets. It was really hard to leave the beach.
