  • My wife and I had a great time on the guided tour. We received a lot of information regarding the history and ecology of the Santa Barbara area. Our guide took us all the way down to the Kelp forest and pointed out a whole host of wildlife indigenous to the area. Well worth the money. Would recommend this to anyone living in or visiting the area.
  • Santa Barbara's Paddle Sports Center did an amazing job at introducing me to the sport of SUP Boarding! I had the pleasure of taking my first lesson from owner/instructor, Kaya, who did an amazing job of introducing the basics. Not only is she knowledgeable about SUP Boarding, but she's also a marine biologist. I highly recommend visiting SB Paddle Sports Center for lessons and rentals.
  • Walked in looking to rent a SUP but was advised (rightly so) to take a Kayak instead because of the wind. The kayak was great and the suggested route through the harbour and out into the ocean past shoreline beach and into the kelp forest was great. And to be able to return to a warm shower made it outstanding. Thanks.
  • We had a really great experience with Paddle Sports. The staff was very nice and got us onto the water quickly. We did a walk-in kayak rental and had zero issues. The equipment is well kept and gets the job done! There are also small lockers in the shop available for storage of smaller bags. I appreciated the quick review of the map of the area and points of interest. We checked out the seals at the red buoy, the kelp forrest and then got to play with a pod of dolphins (about 4 miles in total). It was a beautiful day and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
  • I love hanging out and paddling at Paddle Sports Center. The staff is always super helpful and passionate about paddling. They make it easy to get on the water quick because I don't have to worry about transporting gear or boards to and from my house. The harbor has routes to offer for beginner paddlers as well as those looking for a more adventurous and challenging paddle. I recommend a membership to Paddle Sports for all my friends!!!
