Avila Beach Whale Watching was originally Central Coast Sailing Charters and was also known as SLOsailing.com We have a great deal of local knowledge and experience with the whales and other animals of San Luis Bay as we have been offering boat tours here since 2012 and in that time we have taken over 11,000 guests out to experience this wonderful place. To keep with our tradition of quality we still have a 6 passenger maximum on each trip making this one of the most personal and interactive whale watching excursions available in California. We have switched from using a sailboat to a much faster and more stable 28 ft power catamaran in order to get to the whales more efficiently which gives us more quality time with them per trip. We have built a reputation in the area for offering a unique and high quality experience for our guests and this is reflected in our online reviews. We are honoured to have been rated the best boat tour in the Avila Beach area for the past 9 years on both Tripadvisor and YELP. We are conveniently located on the Harford pier at Port San Luis which is very close to Avila Beach and just a 15 to 20 minute drive from Pismo Beach or San Luis Obispo. We offer whale watching tours, one hour wildlife viewing tours, ash scattering services and private charters. Please call Capt. Mark If you have any questions (805) 540 4667.
