The Central Coast is an outdoor recreation, sight seeing, and wine tasting paradise. You can experience great hiking, mellow backroad bike trips, water sports, wine country tasting tours, great restaurants, and world class coastal scenery all in one day. Learn about the history and culture of this area along the way if you are interested. Want a beach break? I will provide everything you need for experiencing any of our terrific beaches. I can also arrange sea kayaking, standup paddle boarding, surfing, parasailing, and boating expeditions or lessons. I will customize day trips according to your preferences anywhere between Santa Barbara and Ragged Point. Tours are $50/hour for up to six hours per day. Multi-day trips are negotiable to go further up or down the coast.
I love outdoor recreation, food, wine, history, and scenic tours. My favorite outdoor activities are hiking, hybrid cycling on back roads, sea kayaking, standup paddle boarding, and relaxing on the beach. I know the best trails in the area, some of which are not known to the public. I am familiar with all the microclimates along the central coast, so I know where to go depending on the weather. I am a gourmet cook and wine connoisseur. I love all types of food and know the best restaurants in the area in all price ranges from the Cowgirl Café to Gennaro’s. I am a member of several wineries where I can arrange free tastings for up to four people. I know all the wine regions from Paso Robles to Santa Ynez and the best wineries to visit where you will not have to jostle with a busload of tourists. We have spectacular scenery here, and I love to drive the Big Sur Coast and the back roads of the Paso Robles and Santa Ynez viticultural areas. I can show you pristine coastal areas that have not changed since Juan Cabrillo sailed the coast in 1542. We have some terrific hidden gems here that most people miss as casual tourists. Exploring in my SUV is one of my favorite activities, so I know many back roads seldom traveled by tourists. I have studied the history of this area, including the early Native American Indians, Spanish missionaries, the Mexican ranchos, the settlers of the 1800’s, and the modern era including the development of the wine industry, Cal Poly (our premier university), Diablo Canyon, and conservation efforts.
