We booked an overnight trip to Santa Cruz island in Channel Islands National Park in late October. The weather was perfect, and the seas relatively calm. Our guide Tony is one of the senior guides. Office staff were very helpful with answering questions and providing lots of information prior to the trip, and e-mail correspondence is prompt. We got very... More

We started out from the Ventura Harbor, heading for the Channel Islands (Santa Cruz Island). On our way to the island, we saw hundreds of dolphins playing around the boat. Amazing! We landed on the island and Tony, (our guide from Aquasports), went through all the directions before we got started. Kayaking the caves was incredible! Tony was a fabulous... More

What an incredible day kayaking around Santa Cruz Island, part of the Channel Islands. Our guide Tony, brought us through many amazing caves. He was always sure to check them out before hand to make sure they were safe. It was always our option to go through them or not. I never felt any pressure to make a move I... More

I arranged a two day kayaking trip over the summer with a group of boy scouts through Aquasports. What a great weekend. The guides accommodated kayakers with a range of experience and took us in several sea caves on the first day and for a picnic to Potato Harbour, which can only be reached by sea, on the second day....

I wanted to take my teenaged grandkids on an adventure that didn't involve electronics, and asked my son to come along for the paddle. I chose to do some sea kayaking in the Channel Islands, and I'm so glad that I did! We camped overnight because I was unsure of the timing on the kayaking and the boat back to... More

We booked a day trip to Santa Cruz Island a few months in advance. We are National Park adventurers and thought kayaking would be a good way to experience Santa Cruz island in a day. We did arrange our ferry through AquaSports who utilized Island Packers; this worked out fine. The day we arrived at the ferry, there were three... More

The Channel Islands are one of the most magical parts of our planet, and the guides of Aquasports have taken us on unforgettable adventures. The sea caves are far more exciting than any Matterhorn ride, the aqua jewels of transparent seas more alive than any magician could imagine. On our last trip with Tony - who could be a patient...

Myself and 4 college roommates met up in California for a camping trip. We spent 3 days on Santa Cruz Island with Andy and Amy from Aquasports as our guides. While we have some experience kayaking and canoeing, this was our first sea kayaking adventure. Andy and Amy were super patient and extremely knowledgeable. The kayaking was challenging (we were...

This was a fantastic experience. The water was turquoise and clear with excellent visibility. We went into about 7 caves. The maneuvering and steering through the caves was fun and exciting. The scenery was gorgeous. Saw kelp, sea lions, and harbor seals. Our guide Jim was helpful and knowledgable. The trip was safe and relaxing. Way better than the La... More

My friend and I had never gone sea kayaking, so we were a little apprehensive about what to expect. I guess I expected to be treated dismissively because of my lack of experience, but Eric was totally attentive, informative and non-judgemental. We chose to do a 4-5 hour coastal trip which was really amazing. We started out with an on-shore... More
