  • We had a fantastic experience on the 3-hour kayak tour on Santa Cruz Island (Scorpion Harbor). Hector was a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. I would highly recommend this trip!
  • Excellent tour of the Channel Islands Sea Caves! We saw so much wildlife including sea lions, seals and sea birds and explored some incredible caves! The tour guide, Elise, was awesome! She had so much knowledge on the islands and was great at breaking down how each cave would be and gearing us up for the paddle in. We can't wait to go back!
  • This cave kayaking tour is wonderful! I’m visiting the area for a few months and have done this tour twice! My guides have been Aaron & Chuck, both very knowledgeable about the island, wildlife & kayaking. Highly recommend!!
  • We did a seaside bike ride and a refugio kayak trip with 10 of us - 4 adults and 6 kids. Kim in the office was fabulous and so helpful with all the planning. The staff for the bike ride (Scott and Sam) and for the kayak trip (Kyle and Sam) were excellent! I highly recommend doing any kind of outing with this company.
  • Hector and Jerry were fantastic guides on our half day kayak tour from Santa Cruz. The boat ride to the island was extremely rough due to high winds. Hector made sure to check on us and even provided ginger candy to help ease our stomachs. Despite rough waters on the trip to the island, we were able to navigate to three caves. Hector and Jerry gave great instruction on kayaking tips that helped my girlfriend (who has never kayaked) and I navigate the waters easily. They were always aware of surroundings and there to assist when needed. After kayaking was over, they provided trail maps and suggested their favorite hike. Awesome experience, highly recommend it.
