The vast Santa Barbara Channel extends just beyond the Santa Barbara shores, making for an excellent reason to consider adding a chartered fishing trip to your itinerary.

If you want to stay on the mainland Stearns Wharf just east of the Santa Barbara Harbor is a reliable, easily accessible and a favorite fishing locale.  Other pier fishing takes place off Goleta and Ellwood Piers, but successful surf fishing can be had up and down the Santa Barbara coastline.
