About Us

Celebrating 24 years of excellence! Since 1998, Santa Barbara Adventure Company has served as the Central Coast’s premier adventure travel outfitter. We’re committed to creating unforgettable adventures of the highest quality while highlighting the natural beauty of our surrounding countryside and coastal waters. Our knowledgeable and friendly guides offer exceptional service and love to share the best Santa Barbara has to offer with our guests.

Our mission is to inspire a love of nature and our community by empowering all people through exceptional guided experiences.

Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains, Santa Barbara is perfect for both fun weekend getaways or thorough travel sabbaticals. Santa Barbara boasts a rich Spanish heritage, beautiful vistas, cozy downtown, a historic pier, and the Queen of the Missions. Our south-facing mountain range creates a Mediterranean-like climate with 300 days of sunshine each year, protected waters, and a pristine marine environment earning Santa Barbara its nickname The American Riviera.

Choose your Adventure: Go kayaking or join a surf lesson along the pristine shores of the Gaviota Coast; visit our gorgeous wine country that boasts some of the state’s finest wineries; explore world-renowned sea caves at Channel Islands National Park; the outdoor opportunities in Santa Barbara are limitless!

What sets us apart? We are not in the business to sell outdoor equipment. We pride ourselves on being a full-service outfitter that provides unforgettable experiences to our guests.

Learn about our local history, wildlife, geography, and more! All of our guides are well-versed and love to share interesting facts and stories about Santa Barbara.
