Our family just returned from a day trip to Santa Cruz island with these guys and had an incredible time. I don't normally write reviews, but I read the review that was already posted, and had to give these guys props for our trip. From our experience, they ran a very safe operation, and I'm not sure how you can compare a helicopter crash to kayaking. Our guide JD provided us with very comfortable gear and had extensive knowledge on the area. We had our two teenagers with us and they both enjoyed themselves (which is rare!). Would highly recommend this outfit for anyone looking for an adventure at the Channel Islands.

Pros: Lots of fun, dolphins everywhere!

The managers at this establishment believe more in proving themselves "right" than providing their customers with a good experience.

We wanted to postpone our trip because of thunderstorms. Three people were deceased on Catalina Island because of bad weather the same day our trip was scheduled for.

The owners were completely unwilling to do anything about the bad weather and kept all of our money. They claimed the weather was "safe," although unpleasant. I am sure the pilot of the crashed helicopter that deceased three people also claimed it was "safe."

Pros: None

Cons: Take you money. Have crazy 7% "credit card fee."
