Santa Barbara Kayak Rentals & Kayaking Tours

Santa Barbara Kayak rentals

The Ultimate Way to Get Around!

A kayak gets you up close and personal with the Santa Barbara Harbor area. Head on out to the Sand Spit, circle the sea-lions sunbathing on the buoys, or check out the famous Santa Barbara Wharf. The scenery changes, every day, and with concierge service, you’ll paddle and play in style. Choose from group or private guided tours, or head out on your own and explore the beautiful hidden sights of the Santa Barbara coastline.

As you paddle your kayak at your own pace keep an eye out for the variety of plant and animal life that make our coastline so special. You will see pristine kelp beds, the harbor and secluded beaches. Seagulls, cormorants, brown pelicans and even dolphins will often tag along and make your day on the water even more memorable.

You can choose between single and double kayaks. A small child can fit in the middle of a double kayak as a third person. Life vests and paddles are included with all kayak rentals. Ability to swim is required.
