Santa Barbara Sailing Center Stand-Up Paddling

Stand-up Paddle Board Rentals & Tours

The Best Stand-Up Paddle Board Location in Santa Barbara!

Want to feel like you’re walking on water? In addition to boat rentals, charters and kayak rentals, we offer stand-up paddle board (SUP) rentals at the Santa Barbara Sailing Center. It’s as easy as it is cool. We also built a special launch pad just for stand-up paddle boarders. You can launch directly from our dock to explore The Santa Barbara Harbor, Stearns Wharf, East Beach and beyond. Ability to swim is required.

Stand-Up Paddle Board Rental Rates

Members: $13.50 Per Hour/$54 Per Day

Public: $18 Per Hour/$72 Per Day

Private SUP Tours

Guided Tours are the best way to improve your paddling skills with instruction from a trained professional, and are a great option for both novices as well as experienced paddlers. Your guide will show you the best local spots to view wildlife, and might even help you catch a few waves!

Any 2 hours between 9:30am - 4:30pm

$60 Per Person (2 person minimum)

*It is customary to leave your guide a gratuity if you enjoyed your excursion.

Our stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) and kayaking membership allows you to get out on the water as often as you want! It provides a unique alternative to buying and storing a stand-up paddle board or kayak and the equipment and time associated. Our staff conveniently launches you right from our private docks into the calm waters of the Santa Barbara Harbor. We encourage you to go for a paddle before or after work, on your weekends, or even during your lunch break. We have a wide variety of stand-up paddle boards and single & double kayaks for all levels and ages. Our new membership program provides an exciting outdoor alternative for exercise at a much more affordable rate than a gym membership.
