Best View from the Ocean!

Kayak Explorations

A unique way to see Santa Barbara is by ocean kayak. Kayaks allow you to view Santa Barbara from a perspective most people don’t get to experience. Launching from West Beach, our expert guides are able to take you between Leadbetter Point and East Beach, with a detailed exploration of Santa Barbara’s wonderful harbor.
On a clear day, you will be able to view the Channel Islands to your south, and as you turn around the Santa Ynez Mountains to your north. The Santa Barbara Coastline is abundant with wildlife due to the cold California current bringing a northern influence and the warm Davidson Countercurrent providing a tropical element. The key to the incredible biodiversity of the area is the upwelling created by the unique undersea topography and the prevailing winds, which drives a rich food chain. We frequently see California Sea Lions, Harbor Seals, Common Dolphins, California Brown Pelicans, Cormorants, Osprey, and many other animal species on our tours!
