What you'll do

This incredible experience will start and end at the same location and has FREE parking. I am an expert guide and amatuer photographer. I will guide you into the most spectacular and hard to reach areas where others have never even heard about! We will descend into an incredible slot canyon with opportunities for one of a kind photos and breathtaking views of the sparkling Pacific Ocean. We will hike the sands of a secluded beach until we reach the mouth of our canyon where we will climb a short rope into a majestic and beautiful green Grotto with a waterfall. We will visit amazing sandstone slot canyons and wind caves on our trek. The hike up is strenuous at times but you will be rewarded with a 20 million dollar view as we summit magnificent cliffs. The experience will leave you with memories and pictures that will last a lifetime!

I can also add custom times (like moonlight tours) for you and your group if you like.....just ask!
Other things to note
This is a safe family, partner, team building and bonding hiking-adventure experience. You may get a little dirty (or not) but will create a memory that will last a lifetime.

Where you'll be

We will visit a secret San Diego slot canyon and one of San Diego's most secluded and beautiful beaches. We may even see some dolphins. The return trip is strenuous but is worth the effort. We will climb a short rope into a secret canyon. Visit sandstone caves and ascend up an incredible slot canyon on our way to epic cliffs. I will be taking your pictures along the way so that you truly have a unique and memorable adventure!

THIS WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY TRIP! Incredible! Amazing experience for solo travelers. Tons of free parking right at the meeting spot! I went by myself and met such incredible people in the group. Such a great time from start to finish. The views are breathtaking the entire time. I am so happy Victor took so many photos, especially since I am on my own it was amazing to have great documentation of these memories! Victor is an excellent tour guide! He is friendly, engaging, knowledgeable, a great storyteller, so kind, and so helpful! 11/10!

Victor was thoughtful with candid and posed pictures throughout our hike. He is kind to share all of them with our group for free. We enjoyed our sunset adventure very much! Thank you for a wonderful experience!!!

When we began this experience we encountered a separate group of girls who were stuck on one of the cliff ledges. When the group of girls asked Victor for assistance he told them no without any explanation. After seeing this, my boyfriend and someone else part of the group went to help them down. Once they rejoined our experience with Victor, he then scolded them for making him a liability for helping the group of girls. While I understand the hesitancy and need to protect a business, there was also a lack of compassion and human factor that was a huge turn off from the beginning of the experience. The slot canyons were nice, but didn't appreciate being spoken to like children after helping someone which set the vibe for the rest of the time.

Victor was so patient and full of information. He did a great job of guiding our tour and directing us exactly along the way. He took beautiful, amazing pictures of everyone so you have some wonderful memories. Just like an outdoor excursion, it can be construed as having dangerous moments, but Victor was super helpful getting us through each path. He was very patient. If you don't have at least low level of fitness this probably isn't for you, but if you love adventure and stepping a bit out of your comfort zone then you'll love this tour. 10/10 would recommend and would definitely go again.
