My friend and I went on the cave kayaking adventure with Laird, and we had a fabulous time! Laird made the experience memorable and exciting, even though a very low tide with a very big swell meant we couldn't go in or through all the caves. We saw starfish and coral of every color of the neon rainbow, and lots of wildlife, too! We even got to see a HUGE blowhole! You'll have to go yourself to find out what that is!

We had a great day, great guide "Kenji", also a great group of people. beautiful caves, and beautiful water. The information online made it easy for beginners to know what to bring (except gloves, you should bring some for sharp cave walls). I would recommend this trip to any nice people who like peaceful places!

My husband, friend and I all had a wonderful time kayaking with our guide Kenje, around Santa Cruz Island. We were beginners, as were the others who were part of our group. We were given great instruction and were able to feel confident and safe exploring the sea caves around the Island. Our guide provided us with a wealth of information about the Islands and the animal-life. I highly recommend Santa Barbara Adventure Company to others who want to kayak in the Channel islands.

We took a group of about 8 people kayaking on around Santa Cruz Island. The trip was great fun, in no small part because of our guide, Laird. He is extremely knowledgeable and welcomed the opportunity to answer our questions and show us all sorts of interesting things and take us into the coolest ocean caves! Plus he took us to a beach when the kids wanted a break and didn't mind that we got a little off schedule. I'd highly recommend it for adults or kids.

Our group (a mix of adults and teenagers) had a wonderful time kayaking the sea caves on Santa Cruz Island this Christmas vacation. The scenery was absolutely stunning with abundant birds, seals, and other marine life. Laird was our guide an was fantastic. Our group had a mix of kayaking experience from beginners to somewhat experienced and we were all satisfied at the end. Laird guided us expertly along the coast and into various caves, encouraging us but never pushing anyone to do anything beyond their comfort level. I felt totally safe the whole time. He was also incredibly knowledgeable and told interesting stories about the island the the creatures that live there. We asked many questions and I don't think there was one he couldn't answer. He also didn't push us on a strict timetable. When we stopped at a beach and the kids wanted to just play around he was happy to wait until they were done. He was an excellent guide and it was an amazing experience. Highly recommended!
