Santa Barbara Kayaking Tours

There’s no better way to experience Santa Barbara’s raw beauty than from the water!

Our coastal tours are great for seasoned kayakers and first-timers alike. Dolphins, seals, sea lions, sea stars, crabs, and birds-a-plenty are common sights. Our experienced guides love to share kayaking tips, facts about local marine life, and stories about our region’s rich history.

Soak in breathtaking views of the city and Santa Ynez Mountain Range on our Harbor Wildlife and Sunset Kayak Tours or join our guides on a paddle through kelp forests along pristine coastline on our popular Gaviota Coast Kayak Tour.
