Awesome Cave Kayak Tour!

They provided all the gear and we had two guides that expertly took us on an amazing adventure. They also provided water and snacks. Up close, we saw pelicans, sea lions, cormorants and even a white-tailed kite! Both guides take photos of the whole trip and all the photos are free at the end of the trip.

Great outing with Kristin and Kristian

My girlfriend and I took our 13 year old daughters on a 3 hour trip over labor day weekend. We booked last minute and were thankful we got in. Overall GREAT outing with plenty of fun for all adventure levels. My daughter and I got dumped a couple times and they caught some awesome pics of us that are definitely framable. Very well run organization!

Cave Tour

What an awesome tour. You see a whole other side of the coast out on the water. The staff was super helpful and fun. My husband and I had a blast on this trip and would recommend it to anyone. The novice kayakers were helped and watched over the whole trip which was good. And the guides were vigilant to anyone that may have trouble. Well worth it to take this trip.
