We offer three hours of instruction per session and focus on team building exercises, fitness, education and aquatic safety.
The program is held on the south side of Morro Rock inside of the North Jetty, at the beach commonly referred to as Widdle Walls. There is a gate that keeps cars from driving up to the beach, so kids can be dropped off and picked up at the gate. A MBLG staff member will walk the kids into the beach location.
Driving Directions: Follow Coleman Drive towards Morro Rock, and keep going all the way to the locked gate. On your right will be Morro Rock and on your left will be the harbor entrance/south jetty.
In the picture below, Widdle Walls is the patch of beach on the bottom left and the gate drop off location is on the top right, just beneath the small words "Coleman Dr".
We maintain a ratio of 9:1 participants to staff during program operations.
Swimming skills and previous ocean experience are not required for MBLG participants!
You might be asking yourself, "I thought that beach's name had a different spelling?" The answer is Yes... and No. We originally spelled it the "other way," and were kindly informed by our friends at the Morro Bay Harbor Patrol that actually the "other spelling" came from a misprint from the Tribune Newspaper in the 70s. The name "Widdle Walls" came from a local fisherman's young son, who called the little waves that wrap around the North Jetty "Little Walls" with an adorable young man's accent. We decided that we liked this name better and so have adopted it!
