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

These guys were great! When we booked our kayaking trip I told Eric that my wife and I were going to be camping on Santa Cruz island for a few days. He offered helpful advice and answered questions about the island, completely unrelated to the kayaking trip. Very solid guy who it was a pleasure to do business with. Our... More

We decided to have a slightly different Thanksgiving last year (2012) and go camping and kayaking on Santa Cruz Island. We made our own camping and boat reservations and then contacted Aquasports for a one-day kayaking trip on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. We met our guide, Andy, on the pier before the trip over and he helped us get our... More

So lets start with the boat trip.... Firstly, get a seat inside as you will get cold and wet outside whatever the weather. You can always move about but inside seats go quickly. Please please take anti sickness tablets if you are at all adverse to sickness as it can look calm and be very very choppy. Bonine is recommended... More

My family and I just returned from a one day kayaking trip to Santa Cruz Island, about 20 miles off Ventura. We went in mid-October and the weather was perfect - sunny and warm, with a slight breeze to keep it from being too hot. The water was very calm, warm, and crystal clear. When we arrivied at the ferry... More
