Join us for a natural history adventure unlike any other!
Guides Tanya Atwater and Elihu Gevirtz will interpret the natural history via two-way radios throughout the drives and then in person at significant stops.
We will drive to Refugio Beach - an area of cultural significance, and one of CIR's many restoration sites - and then wind our way up the canyon to Refugio Pass along the Santa Ynez Ridge. From there we will wind our way east atop the ridge, treated to sweeping views of the Santa Ynez Valley to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south. We'll have time to get out of the jeeps to get up close and personal with some of the more exceptional areas as well. This whole experience will be narrated by Tanya and Elihu, adding depth to the awe-inspiring scenery.
The adventure will wind its way to the historic Cold Springs Tavern, where we'll be treated to live music, tri-tip sandwiches, and beer-battered onion rings. Drinks are available at extra cost as well!
The trip will return to Santa Barbara around 3:00 pm where we'll unfortunately have to ask you to exit the jeep and bring the adventure to an end.
Full refunds will be offered until one week before the trip, April 30th at 11:59 pm. Following that time, we can only offer a full refund if we are able to fill your vacancy. Otherwise we regret that we will not be able to issue a refund as we have a very slim profit margin on this trip.
