  • Our guide was experienced, pleasant, and paid close attention to the particular needs of each group member as well as the group as a whole. We had a real adventure, but I felt safe the whole time. Pay...  more »
  • Awesome to have a elephant seal to come close to your kayak. Love to hear the seals bark at your kayak. Wonderful challenge to kayak in the caves and come back out alive. Must do on the bucket list.  more »
  • Our family of four decided on the 1.5 hour Discovery Sea Kayak tour in the afternoon so that we would have some time to also explore the island during the morning. The views from the top of the ridge ...  more »

  • Virtual communication with the people at Santa Barbara Adventure Company was a pleasure, we switched to a different adventure after booking and someone got back to me right away and was super polite & helpful. We did the ultimate kayaking experience and visited a number of caves, I was amazed how close we were able to get to everything! I never thought I'd actually be able to paddle into a sea cave! Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and set a good pace for paddling. Every staff member we came into contact with was a pleasure to interact with, so much that our group commented how nice & helpful everyone was!! I would really recommend this to anyone traveling to the channel islands- if you are thinking about it just do it!! Thank you to everyone at Santa Barbara Adventure Company!
  • Awesome experience kayaking. Excellent guides, great food on the boat, and the opportunity to take a nap in the bunk beds underneath was a great treat since we were driving all night to get to Santa Barbara. They had an great packing list of things to take that I felt very prepared for the trip. I loved it so much that I will definitely go back next year to do this again and explore one of their many kayaking tours.
  • My boyfriend and I went last month and had an awesome time. Tours like this aren't usually our thing but this was a great experience for us! We learned a lot (the guides were amazing, so friendly and knowledgeable) and loved getting to see all the caves that probably would have been challenging to find on our own. I highly recommend!
  • My best friend and I just spent 2 nights on Santa Cruz Island. We booked a Kayak tour on line and it was smooth sailing all the way. Our Kayak guide - Chuck - was just fantastic! He walked to our campsite to give us a reminder. We were fitted with our safety gear which was all in excellent condition and clean. After our preliminary instructions, off we went on our Sea Cave Adventure. It was AWESOME! Not only did we go in and through multiple caves, we also learned quite a bit about marine life, animal life, and geological history of the island. All in all a wonderful experience. Cannot wait to return.
  • I don't normally like tours, but I loved this one. Our guide Hector was very knowledgeable about the island's history and geology. He expertly guided our kayak group through the many caves and arches. My family and I were truly amazed. My family was thrilled with the experience. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who craves adventure.
