My son and I had an amazing day yesterday touring the caves on Santa Cruz Island. Our guide Halli was just incredible. So knowledgeable and passionate about the Island. About to enter one of the caves, we heard the sound of a peregrine falcon and Halli managed to locate it on the cliff and tell us all about the bird's... More

We went out by ferry to Santa Cruz Island in the Channel Islands and went sea kayaking in caves along the cliffface. It was amazing! Our guide, Aaron, was great as he knew which caves were good to enter and which were not. If you have never been caving by kayaking, or you are not an experienced kayaker, take advantage... More

Our group will never forget our Santa Barbara sea kayaking adventure! Mother Nature cooperated and we were able to go in several sea caves, through tidal pools and even shoot through one cave opening. Our guide, Adam was a teacher, great guide and very professional. It is well worth it and very important to remember the tip for the guide.... More

We kayaked with them on Friday the 13th. It was our lucky day. Weather perfect, all we needed was a polo shirt and the seas were light but enough of a swell to make things interesting. We spent a good three to four hours on the water. We saw everything you'd expect to see and more. Sea lions coming very... More

My husband and I went on the bike riding wine tour. It was AMAZING! Kyle was our awesome guide and was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. We went to two wineries and rode 10 miles while looking at stunning scenery. We had a great day and will definitely be requesting Kyle for our next tour!

We did the bike & wine tour today and it was fabulous! Our guide, Laird, gave us local history and was so friendly and personable. Both wineries were beautiful and we had wine shipped home to Texas. Our lunch was spread out on a tablecloth for us to enjoy while tasting different wines at the second winery. I would recommend... More
