If you are trying to plan a trip to Painted Cave on Santa Cruz Island, unfortunately due to transportation logistics, increased costs and guest interest we will not be scheduling regular tours to Painted Cave at this time.
However, you can book kayaking and snorkeling tours on Santa Cruz Island year around by taking the ferry to the island. These tours have the advantage of a “landing” meaning you can also hike and explore the island.
While on the ferry you can whale watching, witness mega dolphin pods and enjoy a quick right to the island. Come and see blue whales, bald eagles, mega pods of dolphins and beautiful sea life.
