About Morro BayBoth the town of Morro Bay and the bay that fronts it are named for Morro Rock, a dome-shaped volcanic peak that rises out of the Pacific Ocean, 578 feet above the northwestern end of the city's harbor. In the 1870s Morro Bay was a port for the region's cattle ranching and dairy industries, which were later replaced by commercial fishing and oyster farming enterprises.
Boat tours and boat rentals are available along the Embarcadero. Less than a mile south of SR 1 is Morro Bay State Park.
