“I love that we do something different every day with this job — I’m trained in everything from wine tours to kayaking to rock climbing,” said Ricardo “Caco” Filipouski, who has worked for Santa Barbara Adventure Company for three summers and can been seen here leading a tour off of El Capitan State Beach earlier this month. “My friends see all the pictures of kayaking, and they say I have the best job in the world, but a lot of work goes into these preparations.” 
The company had to cease its popular Gaviota Coast tours in the wake of May’s oil spill near Refugio State Beach but recently was able to start offering the paddle again, so folks can get back out on the Pacific, see the kelp forests, learn about marine wildlife, and have a great day in the sun, provided the waves and wind cooperate.
