A relaxing day of paddling along the Santa Barbara waterfront.
We “put-in” at the Santa Barbara harbor, after a comprehensive kayak lesson. Our journey takes us through the harbor, along secluded beaches, past sea lions and kelp forests and around the historic pier. The group will stop on a secluded beach for lunch, before completing a large loop, ending back at the harbor. People love this paddle because of the relaxed pace and incredible marine life as well as taking in the views of town from the water.
A perfect day of kayaking, swimming and fun.
The Gaviota Coast is one of the few remaining sections of undeveloped, open coastline in California. We meet at Refugio State Beach.

Once we are on the water and feeling comfortable, we will tour a total of 3 miles, stopping in pristine kelp beds to learn about Marine Ecology and the Santa Barbara Channel. At mid-day we’ll stop for lunch, served on a secluded beach.
