From the ferry ride to the kayak tour, it was a great day on the water. Eric (who we booked with) was great and stayed in touch with us all week to be sure we had up to date information on what to do. Tony, our island guide, was so knowledgeable & authentic; he told interesting stories, had tons of... More

There's a great campground with lots of shade under magnificent Eucalyptus trees. Had we known and seen the pictures prior to booking this day trip, we would have hauled our gear to stay overnight. Well worth the money to Kayak with Aquasports. We wouldn't know which cave to go in with our guide Andy. Super nice and knowledgeable of marine... More

Very impressed with this business! Professional, friendly, and well educated! Tony was my guide on the Santa Cruz islands and was phenomenal! I will use their service again.

My family booked a day trip to Santa Cruz Island with Aquasports. We had them handle the ferry reservation. The trip was very well organized, with clear instructions emailed to me in advance of the trip. Our guide, Andy, was fantastic and we enjoyed spending our day with him. He took our small group on a tour of many sea... More

We booked an overnight trip to Santa Cruz island in Channel Islands National Park in late October. The weather was perfect, and the seas relatively calm. Our guide Tony is one of the senior guides. Office staff were very helpful with answering questions and providing lots of information prior to the trip, and e-mail correspondence is prompt. We got very... More

We started out from the Ventura Harbor, heading for the Channel Islands (Santa Cruz Island). On our way to the island, we saw hundreds of dolphins playing around the boat. Amazing! We landed on the island and Tony, (our guide from Aquasports), went through all the directions before we got started. Kayaking the caves was incredible! Tony was a fabulous... More

What an incredible day kayaking around Santa Cruz Island, part of the Channel Islands. Our guide Tony, brought us through many amazing caves. He was always sure to check them out before hand to make sure they were safe. It was always our option to go through them or not. I never felt any pressure to make a move I... More

I arranged a two day kayaking trip over the summer with a group of boy scouts through Aquasports. What a great weekend. The guides accommodated kayakers with a range of experience and took us in several sea caves on the first day and for a picnic to Potato Harbour, which can only be reached by sea, on the second day....

I wanted to take my teenaged grandkids on an adventure that didn't involve electronics, and asked my son to come along for the paddle. I chose to do some sea kayaking in the Channel Islands, and I'm so glad that I did! We camped overnight because I was unsure of the timing on the kayaking and the boat back to... More
