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.

We heard about Margarita Adventures from a friend. We went online to schedule a zipline tour for a fun activity. Signing up was very easy. It was a long, but pleasant drive from Ventura County to Santa Margarita(a very small town). We were welcomed by a very friendly staff in the office. The team operating the ziplines was very patient... More

This is a great zipline tour. I had done this back when they first opened and they have since added two new lines to the tour, in addition to a suspension bridge. Too much fun! Tour guides are friendly and knowledgeable including the bus driver. Looking forward to my next visit!

We all had a great time -- two older adults, two 20-year-olds, an eight-year-old. Definitely worthwhile.

We, my girlfriend and I, went to Margarita Adventures on 1-6-17. We had an absolutely fantastic time. First, you start off with a short bus ride across acres and acres of wine country while being entertained by stories of the history, wildlife, wine and culture of the land. Second, you arrive at a safety equipment area where you don your... More

This was the best time. Everyone who interacted with us was fantastic. From the check in, to the zip lining, to the wine tasting after; all were friendly and helpful. Loved all the information provided along the way. I said yes to a good sunny/hot/cold day activity, but I think either extreme would be difficult. Too hot and the hiking... More

Not only was the ziplining so much fun, but everything was so well organized and the staff so friendly and helpful that the entire experience was amazing. Starting from the shuttle bus driver giving Santa Margarita history as we rode out to the ranch, to the mini hikes between ziplines, and of course the thrill of flying over the fields... More
