This location is one of the best for open ocean kayaking adventures. It's a real physical test and a complete reconnection with nature. Santa Cruz Island has one of the largest caves in the world. Trust me, getting inside that cave, seeing pure marine life, touching the cliffs, and hearing waves crash right next to you is unforgettable.

Pro Tip: Pack a delicious lunch with you. There are no vendors on the Island, and you will get hungry after a few hours on the water.

Oh what fun! Worth every bit of money. My husband went for the adventure day trip and we both have no swimming experience. Joe took great care of us, we got to kayak in the ocean and tackle some adventurous waves. The guides took us into the caves, showed us some nice kayaking tips and tricks and made sure we were comfortable. We also learnt some interesting facts about kelps, seals etc. during the tour we saw seals, different birds and touched a sea urchin. The company gave us a jacket, floaty, helmet, kayak and pedals. Wet suit was optional, we skipped it since it was warm and sunny. Carried some water and bars for the trip. After the tour we had enough time to quickly do cavern point Hike. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a fun filled day.
My partner, my mom, and I, did the discovery sea cave kayaking tour on 4/2/2022. Marc, our guide, was incredible! He was so knowledgeable and fun. We felt safe at all times and Marc prepared us for any outcomes and gave us the tools to succeed! We cannot wait to come back and do this again. I highly recommend it!
The experience this company provides while visiting Channel Islands NP is incredible. I cant express how much I would recommended them! From an easy check-in the morning of at the pier, to actually being on the open water and in the sea caves on kayacks, they made it safe and easy. We did the 4hr tour and it was a full 4 hrs in a small group. Our guide, Jared, was very fun! Afterwards, there was ample time to hike the island and our guide recommended Potato Harbor Overlook Trail (which was a great recommendation). We saw tons of wildlife (Seals that came right up to our kayacks, Sea Lions, Dolphins, Foxes, Birds). Probably one of the best experiences you can have at a NP. **If you're into taking pictures by the actual NP signs, the official one is located back on mainland. Make a right when you leave the ferry parking lot, go a couple hundred yards, and it's there in front of the building.
We had a blast! Sea Cave kayaking is an incredible experience and I can't recommend it enough. Channel Islands Adventure Company made our experience fun, easy, and safe. We loved our tour guide - Chuck! He knew so much about the area and shared with us a lot of interesting information, he was also very funny and made us laugh a lot which is always a plus! We can't wait to come back and do this again!
Had an amazing time on the island. The staff was amazing especially our guide, Brian. Opted for the beginner kayak cave tour and had a great time. Got some awesome pictures and memories ✨️.
