How to Plan a Kayak Trip to Painted Cave

If you are trying to plan a trip to Painted Cave on Santa Cruz Island, you are in luck. We just posted new dates for the Paint Cave Kayak Excursion in California Channel Islands! This amazing sea cave is one of the largest in the world, extending a quarter-mile long with an entrance ceiling of 160 feet. Painted Cave trips depart from Santa Barbara Harbor; guests will stay on the boat all day and kayak/snorkel from the boat. Sit back and take in the beauty of the Santa Barbara Channel while we take care of all of the details. You will receive a continental breakfast on the ride to the island and a hot lunch on the ride back; these meals are included in the price of your trip.

Enjoy whale watching, incredible sea cave kayaking and world class snorkeling while you explore the rarely visited north-west area of Santa Cruz Island. Come and see blue whales, bald eagles, mega pods of dolphins and beautiful sea life. All kayak and snorkel gear is provided and your guide will be available to lead you through the sea caves and offer insightful  information about the amazing wildlife and spectacular scenery along the way. This special trip is only available select dates this summer:
