My friend and I had the chance to enjoy kayaking around Anacapa island with Blue Ocean Kayak. The price included the boat trip to the islands, a double kayak, and a guide. We saw harbor seals, sting rays and topped it off with an amazing opportunity to kayak through caves and arches. No pressure or need to go into ones... More

Our group of seven totally ENJOYED our day with Blue Ocean Kayaking! 3.7 miles of the Pacific ocean under our belt along with a few caves (and sea lions!) Reservations were easy to make, directions to the boat were helpful and the staff excellent! We loved our 10 mile boat ride to the island and especially the ride back eating... More

We shared a double Kayak and saw harbor seals, sea lions, garibaldi, sting rays, halibut, abalone, dungeness crab, lobster, cormorants, oyster birds, pelicans, squid eggs, gulls, and went into at least a dozen caves. Good day, no wind, flat sea, not to hot. Good boat trip on a solid vessel that drops you at one end of the island and... More

What a great adventure! The facilities are exceptional. Since Blue Ocean Kayaking has their own ferry you don't have to worry about the additional cost and time of arranging transportation (they are the only company I found who does this). Being able to store our extra clothes, camera, etc on the boat while we were kayaking was so convenient! Also,... More

What a GREAT way to appreciate sea caves. GJ was our guide & was magnificent, he MADE the trip 100% awesome. Eleven mile boat ride out to Anacapa. Got out of the back of the boat & into the kayaks. It was daring while not being dangerous. I would suggest doing this if you have upper body strength. Fascinating getting... More

Blue Ocean Kayaking is the best! Our guide, GJ, was funny, knowledgeable, and personable. We saw dolphins on the way to Anacapa, plus many seals and sea lions, not to mention all the birds once we got there. It was so easy to step right from the boat into the kayak. The sea caves were amazing and we got to... More

I enjoyed each and every minute of my Blue Ocean Kayaking tour! It was so nice to be able to get into the kayaks right from the boat once we got to Anacapa. GJ led us into many sea caves plus we had plenty of time to just paddle and enjoy the Island and the wildlife. We saw so many... More

We were planning a trip to Santa Barbara originally but ended up in Oxnard since we got our hotel on points. Wanted to go Kayaking and looked up many trips from Santa Barbara but wanted to see if there were any in Oxnard and boy was I glad I did. This trip was amazing! The guide GJ was a pleasure... More
