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 six distinct ziplines spanning more than 7,500 total feet, starting with an epic 2,800-foot tandem line. Flying next to a friend or partner, you depart between two legacy red oaks, then soar over a steep canyon forested with blue oaks. Next, you crest over a high ridge and conquer a broad valley at heights reaching 160 feet before finally landing on the distant mountainside, completing an epic journey that you’ll never forget.You'll end your tour with an epic 1,800 foot flight 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 six 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.

This is not only an amazing zip wire experience, it's a really interesting insight into a working ranch and the innovative ways they are doing business today. Our tour guide had a fantastic knowledge of the ranch and the town which he shared with us on the way to and from the zip wires. As for the zip wires, you... More

We took our family of 5 to Margarita Adventures for a great day of zipping. The people connected with the program were all great, helpful and informative. The lines are all ground ground so you just have short walks to the next line and you do not have to do any climbing (although the walk is up hill to one... More

I wanted to take my boys on a outing before college started and recalled how they liked go-carts when they were little. I looked into renting dune buggies at Pismo Beach and discovered a package that included both the ATVs and the Zip Line Adventure. Perfect. The timing was great. We enjoyed the Oceana Campground and were one of the... More

You meet at their office in town and they take care of everything else. A bus takes you a short distance to a local hilltop where you begin a series of zip line excursions over vineyards at a large private ranch. You are fitted with your harness at the first line and carry it with you. All the lines are... More
