Experience 

CIEx has been running sea cave kayaking tours at the Channel Islands for over 30 years and our guides have intimate knowledge of the area. Our vessel supported kayaking tours have been curated by our founders who have kayaked around all of the islands and chosen the best places to run day trips. 

*Snorkeling Note: in order to keep to our schedule we may have to reduce snorkeling time in order to position ourselves safely in front of advancing weather in the Santa Barbara Channel. If snorkeling is something you absolutely want to participate in without rush, please try our EPIC Sea Caves of Anacapa Combo instead.
