Location & Hours
Awesome tour guide took us from cave to cave most by kayak but 1 even by foot, gave us so much really good background information on plants and animals, showed us the bald eagle pair, reported suspicious divers (loved that he responds when social duty calls) and was super nice, respectful, knowledgeable & helpful all around. The whole experience from booking to tipping was a real pleasure. I highly recommend taking a kayak tour to see the amazing sea caves & parts of the island you would otherwise miss.
Terrific experience. We kayaked with a 12 year old and 8 year old. The 1.5 tour was sufficient as the open water currents are strong and demanded heavy paddling. Our guide was funny, informative and attentive to everyone’s needs on the tour. In the 1.5 hours we explored 5 caves. So much kelp and marine life. We also rented wetsuits for the kids so they could snorkel off the beach and they ended up wearing them all day without any complaints of being cold.
We had guides Ben and Lisa, they were amazing! For a guided tour, they really allow you to explore and create your own adventure in the caves. They keep you safe and help you out when needed. It was an amazing time and so much fun! Highly recommend this, don’t miss the great opportunity.
This was a great experience to learn more about the island and see a lot of beautiful nature. We saw some whales on the ferry, seals on the kayak tour, and foxes on the island. The kayak tour was perfect and it was a thrill traversing the caves. Our guide Marc made the experience even better. He was very knowledgeable about the strategies to go through the caves, and also about the island in general. I would say this is a must see if you are in the area - everything was great!
A must if you’re visiting Santa Cruz Island! We did the adventure tour and it was perfect. Addison was our guide and she was awesome with a wealth of knowledge of the islands :)
