THIS TOUR IS VERY AFFECTED BY THE WAVES! If there is a swell, we cannot do the tour. We take your safety seriously and want you to enjoy yourselves! So, we will be in touch with you if the waves are too big to do the tour.
If you are down for this memorable challenge, you will get the opportunity to paddle on the turquoise waters to check the amazing cave and arch formations that appears along the lush, mountainous coastline of Ventanas Beach. If the wave conditions allow us, we will try to pass through a cave or two! (THERE IS NO GUARANTEE TO PASS THROUGH THE CAVES - safety is our #1 priority). Our guides will teach you about the different names of the caves and stories behind the names. We will also pass down different legends of this coastline, including the skull that protects the coastline and the hidden treasure where X marks the spot! We also explore the two walking caves on Ventanas Beach and do a little wave surfing with our kayaks!
