Celebrating 20 years of Excellence! Since 1998, Santa Barbara Adventure Company has been the premier adventure travel outfitter on the central coast while serving thousands of guests every year. We’re committed to creating unforgettable adventures of the highest quality, focusing on the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside and coastal waters. Our knowledgeable and friendly guides offer exceptional service and share with you a side of the Santa Barbara area few visitors ever get to experience.
Come to Santa Barbara! Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains and also known as the “American Riviera,” Santa Barbara is the perfect location for a weekend getaway. Santa Barbara boasts a rich Spanish heritage, beautiful vistas, a cozy downtown, an 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 pristine marine environment.
Outdoor adventures are limitless in the Santa Barbara area. The Santa Ynez mountains are home to numerous bike trails and rock climbing sites that allow you to explore the backcountry and all its inhabitants, and our local wine country boasts some of the state’s finest wineries. Meanwhile the Gaviota Coast is perfect for water adventures like coastal kayaking and surfing lessons. Or you can see all this from a higher perspective when you learn to paraglide. The sky is literally the limit at Santa Barbara Adventure Company.
What sets us apart? We offer more than just the activity. We are not in business to sell outdoor equipment, and we pride ourselves on being a full-service outfitter. We provide everything you’ll need to comfortably enjoy your day, including an excellent lunch in a beautiful setting. We are a group of skilled guides who have a deep love for the area, offering insight to our guests about the marine environment and local plants and wildlife.
Interesting Natural and Human History are elements of every Santa Barbara Adventure Company experience. Our guides are well versed in local knowledge, from marine ecology and edible plants to Chumash culture and our Spanish Colonial heritage. Whether you’re biking through wine country, kayaking among dolphins and curious sea lions, or hiking in to our climbing site, you’ll find our adventures are as informative as they are fun.
