Central Coast Caves Overview
Central Coast Caves include sea caves and ancient lava tubes of a dormant volcano. Central Coast Caves are all uniquely interesting. Rent a kayak and explore secluded sea caves in Santa Cruz, Avila Beach and the Channel Islands. Navigable sea caves on the Channel Islands number in the hundreds. View an active bat colony at Balconies Cave in Pinnacles National Park.
WARNING: Caves can be dangerous and deadly. Please use caution and common sense when exploring a cave. Don't enter a cave without a light source and necessary safety equipment. Sea caves can be especially dangerous when tides and waves are up. Choose not to explore a cave if in doubt and stay alive.
WHITE-NOSE SYNDROME: Bat populations in the U.S. are suffering devastating losses due to White-Nose Syndrome. Learn about this disease before entering caves and see what you can do to prevent its spread.
