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 have been to a few zip lines but this was our 1st time at this venue. All in all it is a good time and the lines are fun and fast. The 1st line was long and slow. The 2nd line was SO fast and the stop was abrupt...this is ok but maybe a heads-up would have been nice... More

This was a great experience. The guides were friendly and well trained. Everything was very safe with redundant lines and harnesses. A nice treat was listening to all the history and learning about the natural wildlife that lives on the ranch. I think this is great for families, couples and large groups. I would look to do a corporate outing... More

We went on the adventure for the first experience on a zip line and found it enjoyable from start to finish. The employees (guides) were very friendly and made the whole experience very pleasant. The zip lining was easy and it was a great way to take in the property and enjoy the fresh air.

I attended the zip line with a family of 5 including an 8 year old. I felt very safe and comfortable with the staff members and the tour guide driver is very knowledgeable about the history and wines produced in the area. I had to zip line with my old year old daughter on 4 of 6 zip lines if... More

This was my first experience ziplining and the perfect place for it. I was so nervous, but the team of experts put me at ease with their knowledge, skills and great attitudes. My 24 yr old son accompanied me and has ziplined in Puerta Vallarta before. He was impressed with the facility and thoroughly enjoyed his experience, as well. The... More

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
