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.

Visited with our 2 teenage boys, cannot recommend enough. We all had a fantastic time, booking process was smooth, check in was easy, staff were friendly and knowledgeable, zip lines were fun, scenery was beautiful, wish they had more lines but it's still worth every penny. You felt really safe and secure at all times yet it was still cool... More

The exciting experience of Zipling at Margarita Adventure through Santa Margarita Ranch was fantastic. My only criticism is that the runs were too short! I wanted more once I started. The staff is super nice and informative and I enjoyed the sights and stories of the area. Also one important detail that I wasn't sure of going in, was that... More

Everyone in our group of eight (ages ranged from 13 to 71) had a fantastic time. Even the normally jaded teenagers thought it was totally cool, and were still talking about it the next day! The staff was excellent and very attentive. Highly recommended!!!

My son's family came to visit from Colorado with children , 12, 9, and 7 years old. We went out with the 9 a.m. group. Zip lining was new to most of us. We completed our contracts online which made check in quick and easy. Our driver gave us lots of information about the ranch. We were suited up quickly,... More
