Owner description: At Margarita Adventures, we offer a uniquely thrilling perspective on true California landmarks-the historic Santa Margarita Ranch and Santa Margarita Lake. Our guided kayaking tours will take you on a serene and beautiful excursion to Santa Margarita Lake, where you are sure to see an abundance of birds and wildlife. Tour includes lunch. On our zipline tours, you will embark on five distinct ziplines spanning more than 4,800 total feet, starting with an epic 1,300-foot valley crossing and finishing with our biggest yet: a whopping 1,800-foot soar over right over the vineyard! Tour - Along the way, you will learn about the ranch's remarkable natural features and role as part of California's famed Mission Trail. Your tour concludes in the historic hamlet of Santa Margarita, where you have the option to sample wines from the ranch. Advance reservations are required. Nature - During your tour, you will experience the remarkably diverse natural environment of Santa Margarita Ranch, which spans five distinct soil types and numerous habitats across 14,000 acres. Sustainability - Santa Margarita Ranch is a testament to how native ecosystems can be nurtured and even restored within a working ranch and vineyard environment. During your tour, you will learn about the numerous sustainable practices that are making a difference in the land and what it produces. History - From early Native American inhabitants to Spanish padres, Mexican generals and colorful outlaws, Santa Margarita Ranch boasts an illustrious cultural and historical pedigree that is unrivaled on California's Central Coast. Wine - Santa Margarita Ranch's sustainably farmed vineyard is the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles American Viticultural Area (AVA). During your tour, you will discover why Sunset Magazine called Paso Robles "the West's most exciting wine region." With our four ziplines, we aim to change your perspective, both literally and figuratively. Our tour is designed to accentuate our larger mission: to promote a deeper appreciation for our natural surroundings, and to ultimately see things a bit differently while providing a thrilling experience along the way.

I was terrified....before I got to Santa Margarita! The first step on the first zipline was the hardest...after that I never wanted to get off! Beautiful scenery and very knowledgeable staff. I haven't stopped talking about this fun experience...I will bring some more people with me next time! By the way...I am terrified of heights! Anyone can do this!

My husband, teenage daughter and I all went on the Margarita Adventures zip line excursion on 10/24/14. From the reviews I had read on TA, I was expecting a fun zip line experience and it was definitely that. But, what stands out to me about this excursion is how much more we got. It takes about 1/2 hour to travel... More

I fancied doing something a bit different on my road trip, and stumbled across this. I'm so glad I did! It was so much fun, 5 long ziplines and great scenery. There were only 7 of us in the group as well, so not much waiting around. Staff were all helpful and friendly.

My 2 kids (12 and 9) and I did the Zipline adventure in August 2014. We were looking for an outdoor adventure activity and as the rivers were running too low for whitewater rafting we decided to do this. We had great fun. The company were very friendly and helpful. Our group was quite small (8) so there wasn't a... More

We ALL had a terrific experience and two who were determined to just watch and not take part, changed their minds and had a GREAT time too. We all look forward to this adventure again someday soon.
