No matter what moves you to travel, come and enjoy the area events!
Bring mom out to enjoy a beautiful Mother's Day playing outside in our warm sunshine. Whether she's feeling adventurous or wants to spend her day relaxing, Morro Bay is the perfect getaway to experience breathtaking natural beauty. Here are just a few of our favorite Mother's Day activities here in town:
1. HALF-OFF sportfishing on Mother's Day
Enjoy an ocean-adventure with Virg's Landing on Mother's Day for less! Come aboard a fishing charter and catch some delicious in-season rock fish. You may also meet our local marine mammals just outside the bay -- humpback whales, dolphins and more. Call (805) 772-1222 to reserve your seat.
2. Visit the baby herons:
Mother's Day is the best time to see newborn great blue herons at the heron rookery, right outside the entrance of the Morro Bay Museum of Natural History. It's common to see both males and females caring for their young, which typically hatch early in May. Be sure to look high in the tree boughs, as herons can have nests up to 100 feet off the ground. Pack your binoculars along to catch a better view. Stop by the Museum of Natural History and talk with one of our local experts for more information.
3. Brunch at Windows on the Water:
Open special hours just for our wonderful mothers, Windows on the Water will be serving a delicious brunch starting at 11am on Mother's Day. From 2pm-7pm, they will be serving the regular menu along with special Mother's Day dishes. Call (805) 772-0677 to reserve your table.
4. Say hello to our baby otters: Almost too cute to handle, our baby and mommy otters typically hang out toward the edge of the water next to Dockside restaurant and are seen all the way to Morro Rock's parking lot. They're often spotted cuddling with their mommies, eating some lunch or playing around in the water. You'll want to bring your camera!
