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 either be walked out to the beach with a parent or with a staff member who will be waiting outside the gate in the morning.
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 offer three hours of instruction per session and focus on team building exercises, fitness, education and aquatic safety.
We maintain a ratio of 7:1 participants to staff during program operations.
Although we spend time in the shallow waters of the bay and ocean, MBLG's is a beach-based program and swim skills are useful but not required for a participant to be safe and successful.
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 nicely informed by our friends at the Morro Bay Harbor 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!
