“Outdoor Education Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I had the privilege of having SB Adventure Company organize my Spring classroom camp out at Ocean Mesa Campground. In the past, I've had to completely set up our camp site, including meals, activities, etc...It was such a pleasure have Mike and Matt lead our trip. They were so experienced, organized, professional, and fun! The food was delicious and the activities they planned for us were age appropriate, interesting, and educational. Mike led a hike down to the beach where he opened our eyes to the many wonders around us, highlighting interesting historical facts about Native American tribes and how they survived. Mike also led many fun games for my 6-9 year olds that helped develop team-building and trust between my students. Matt was an amazing cook and was kind and helpful during the whole trip. I look forward to many more trips with Santa Barbara Adventure Company and highly recommend them to educators and families alike.

“Unique great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Our tour guide Landon based the trip on our skills. As our group improved in our techniques we expanded the amount of caves we explored. He provided us with a lot of local history and facts which just added to the great experience. Don't Miss this trip

“sea kayaking was terrific!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We had a fabulous time sea kayaking with Kelsey and Adam on Santa Cruz Island! The company was extremely well organized, and we felt very comfortable with Kelsey and Adam. They explained everything clearly and were quite patient with all of our questions. The actual kayaking experience was incredible--they both helped to make sure we were able to execute the techniques necessary, and took us to some amazing caves. There was never any pressure to do anything, and they made sure that everyone in the group was able to do what they wanted. For example, a couple in the group wanted to spend more time snorkeling and hiking, and so Kelsey and Adam made sure that they had the opportunity to do so. For those of us who wanted to spend more time kayaking, they gave us that opportunity as well. They gave great information about the sea life and the area around the Channel Islands. They were also very personable and easy to talk with--we enjoyed chatting with both Kelsey and Adam before, during, and after the trip about stuff other than kayaking, and also during the boat ride to/from the island. I would definitely use this outfitter again, and would love to try some of their other adventures.
