Directions: please read all the way through

 We located on the Harford Pier at Port San Luis and only 15 minutes from Pismo Beach and 5 Minutes from Avila Beach. San luis Obispo is only 20 Minutes away and Paso Robles is 45 minutes away.

 We meet all of our tours on the Harford Pier which is also known as Pier 3 or Port San Luis. To find the Harford Pier simply exit Hwy 101 traveling from either the North (San Luis Obispo) or South (Pismo Beach) at Avila Beach Drive (Exit 195) and go west on Avila Beach Drive until the road ends in the parking area for the Harford Pier at Port San Luis. The address that works in most GPS / map systems to help you find this parking area is 3950 Avila Beach Drive. Once parked walk out onto the pier and look for the second 5 MPH speed limit sign on the right hand side of the pier as you are looking towards the ocean end of the pier. Our sign is 2 feet by 3 feet in size and is attached to the railing directly below the speed limit sign. Next to our sign is a staircase that leads below the pier to the public landing ( two grey floating docks ) which is where we will meet you 5 minutes before your scheduled tour starts. As you are looking out to sea we are the dock on the left. Please remember that we are not at the end of the pier. We are only about 100 yards from the start of the pier and on the right hand side under the 5 MPH speed limit sign. Another good landmark is the light blue building (Patriot Sportfishing) which is on the left hand side of the pier and we are just 20 yards past this and across the pier. If you have questions please call Capt. Mark @ (805) 540-4667


You only have to pay for parking in the spaces that have green painted lines. All spaces painted white are free all day.


Please note that there is a public restroom on the right hand side of the road as you enter the port area. It is in the Coastal Gateway building and visible from the road as you enter.


Please note that due to a limited number of parking spaces at the port it can be difficult to find parking on weekends and holidays. We recommend for the 11:30 am and 2:00 pm trips that you arrive 30 to 45 minutes early on weekends and holidays. For 9:00am trips weekends and 11:30 am and 2:00pm trips during the week 15 to 20 minutes is usually enough time to find a parking space. Please allow extra time if you will need to use a restroom before the trip.
