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.

A group of my friends ziplined last week when we got together for our annual reunion. Having graduated in the mid-70's, some of us had this on our "bucket list." :) We all had a great time. There is about a quarter mile of uphill walking, but never felt rushed. The tour guide was fantastic, as the history of the... More

I've ALWAYS wanted to do this!! So long overdue. I'm not a thrill seeker by nature but honestly if I knew how much fun it was and how safe they make it, I would have done this years ago. From the moment we stepped in their offices, we were treated like valuable customers and instant friends. The exceptional service continued... More

There is not one, not two, but six ziplines, in a one hour tour, each one unique and each one fun. The guides are friendly and professional. They take care of everything for you. All you have to do is just go. You don't even have to hold on. I loved it!

Our first time zip lining and it was fantastic!!! Views were beautiful, staff were excellent and very knowledgeable. The lines were constructed with redundancy for safety, so we felt safe at all times. We will be back!

The first time I zip lined here they only had 4 lines and that was fun but now they have six which means the fun has multiplied! The staff are nice and knowledgeable about the vineyard. We saw lots of deer, fawns, cows and calves and an eagle. I will definitely be back!

Margarita Adventures zip line was one of the most fun events to participate in on the Central Coast. It is fun for visitors as well as locals. The staff is very pleasant and informative about the ranch and events and is highly concerned about safety. I took my granddaughter for her first adventure on zip lining and she loves it.... More
