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!

Victor’s tour was great! He was able tailor the hike to our fitness level and let us push our limits. The trail is magical, even a cloudy sunset. He’s knowledgeable about the area and very welcoming. Definitely a unique way to explore San Diego!

It is a 2 hr of unique and well packaged adventure, definitely more than a nice scenic walk or hike. We do a lot of hikes and treks, but this one was a nicely structured experience, little of many things to make it memorable and enjoyable. Victor the guide was the cherry on the top, patient, making the trip enjoyable, informative and safe.

What an experience! The pictures posted captured our interest and we were not disappointed. From the start, the hike was well organized and Victor was a terrific guide. He was timely and provided the group with the necessary supplies to make the hike safe and comfortable. He led us into one of the most beautiful slot canyons that we have visited. Although having been in the area for many years, I never knew this canyon existed. He was attentive, making sure we were all safe during hike, taking pictures and pointing out landscapes. He carefully explained the use of the rope ladder and how to navigate. I would highly recommend this hike!! It is arduous and tricky lin sections and you should be in good shape with an appetite for adventures in order to fully enjoy. Thanks, Victor, for a memory we will remember for years to come!

This hike was a San Diego vacation highlight. The views and landscape are spectacular. We never would’ve experienced this part of the city without the guidance of Victor. Many photo opportunities throughout the hike topped off with one of the most beautiful sunsets.
