I'm by no means new to outdoor adventure. I am however fairly new to watersports. Our guide was super fun, funny, and extremely knowledgeable of kayaking, the channel islands and its wildlife. My little brother and I had so much fun and learned a ton. We may have to go back again to tour another island!

This trip was Awesome! A must for anyone who wants to really experience the Channel Islands. We're a mid-aged couple with a little flat-water kayaking experience, so we were a bit unsure about the physical workload and the ocean waves. Our guides Adam and Estoban made sure everyone was having fun, and the kayaking was paced perfectly so that it... More

We had Laird for our wine guide, and he was wonderful. He managed our group with ease and was well prepared. We all truly enjoyed our tour and would definitely recommend SBAC.

Santa Barbara Adventure Company was awesome! With a group of 90 people, SBACo managed us all so smoothly. They were well prepared, high spirits, and ready for anything. The guides were great and informative about the areas we were in and we all felt very secure and safe. We had the opportunity to go Kayaking and Stand Up Paddle boarding... More

We had Kyle for our guide and had a wonderful time! We were there on a Wednesday right after school started, so it was just the two of us and we had a blast. Kyle was very knowledgeable of the area and kept us entertained with information and stories of the area. We stopped to enjoy a picnic lunch and... More

I have been ocean kayaking 4-5 times around various bays and harbors in SoCal -- this was by far the best experience. We had a guided tour which made all the difference. Adam, our guide, was incredibly familiar with the island's wildlife and history. Was a little skeptical about kayaking the sea caves but the Adam showed us the way... More

I have never been kayaking before and was beyond petrified! But our guide Adam was amazing. He talked with me and made me feel so safe! He was fabulous. The kayaking was phenomenal. One of the best experiences of my life. I cannot express how much Adam helped and what a great guide he was! The whole day was beautiful!

We had such a great experience with Santa Barbara Adventure Company! Adam rocked our socks as our Kayak guide. So knowledgeable, and friendly. My friend had a minor freak out before we went out, and he was able to calm her down and make sure that she had the best day. After the kayaking we swam, hiked, and were thoroughly... More
