Santa Barbara: Guided Kayak Tour

2. Santa Barbara: Guided Kayak Tour

Enjoy a relaxed pace and incredible marine life as well as taking in the views of Santa Barbara from the water.

Santa Barbara: Haskell's Beach Kayaking Tour

Join us on an exploration of the Gaviota Coast, home to more than 1,500 species of plant and animal life. This is our most popular coastal trip and offers a perfect day of kayaking, swimming and fun in nature. We will meet at Haskell’s Beach, a secluded icon in the Santa Barbara beach scene. Your guide will outfit the members of your group and offer a thorough kayaking lesson onshore. Once on the water, we will tour a total of 3 miles, stopping in pristine kelp beds to learn about marine ecology and the Santa Barbara Channel (and hopefully kayak with dolphins and sea lions!). If you want to pack a sack lunch, we can stop mid-way through for a beach picnic for an hour or so or you’re welcome to picnic at the conclusion of your tour. As the trip progresses, your guide may offer a fun series of kayak challenges and games. This unforgettable trip will provide great opportunities to swim, play or just float. It’s perfect for all ages of adventure seekers!

Just great!

For us it was the first kayak tour. We were very fortunate that we were the only participants. Maybe that was because the tour on an Easter Sunday, 10 clock, was. The guide was really super nice u and everything with a lot of patience / explained. Before the tour we received from the organizer a Mail.Er wanted our size u. If we wanted, we could have got a wetsuit. We decided against it. Instead, we had a swimsuit u. Short pants (which was wet in the end, but we knew it would happen (guide informed us)). For safety, we took the jacket from the guide. The guide offered us to take pictures on the way. We did not take our camera / cell phones because we were afraid that they would get wet. The guide sent us the photos immediately by email. We would do the tour again immediately. We drove around harbor, a bit out to sea and under the peer

Super organized, safe and fun!!! Beth was a great guide and we look forward to coming back for another kayaking tour!

It was my first time kayaking and it looks easier than it actually is but I recommend it.

This is a great tour for beginners as the guides were knowledgeable and very helpful.
