West Beach Kayak Rental Stand (Paddle Boards available too)

Open 7 days a week May-Oct 1st. Spring and Fall open on weekends. Winter by reservation (call or email)

West Beach is located between Santa Barbara’s historic Stearns Wharf and  Santa Barbara Harbor. From this beach you’ll have quick access to touring the harbor, viewing the sea lions at the quarter-mile buoy and taking a closer look under the wharf! West Beach is a definite fan favorite with so much to see and its tranquil waters make for a great experience. If interested in a Santa Barbara kayak rental this is the easiest spot to kayak with the most to see in town. When finished kayaking this location has the added convenience of being right downtown for food and shopping.

Santa Barbara Kayak Rentals

At our kayak and paddle board rental stand you can choose between single and double kayaks. The double kayaks can fit a smaller child in the middle as a third person. Our West Beach stand has plenty of availability so you can just cruise on down when you feel like kayaking. It’s open from mid-April to mid-October 7 days a week. Other times of the year we’re open on nice weekends, holidays, and by reservation so book online or call us. If you have a larger group you may want to make a reservation so we have everything lined up for you or can bring in more kayaks if we need to. We’ve strategically chosen our Santa Barbara kayak rental location as it is one of the best spots in town to kayak from. The ability to swim is required for all water sports rentals.

If you’d like to rent kayaks for the day or multiple days you can do so at our stand. We can also drop kayaks off at your rental property/ house in Santa Barbara, Carpinteria, Summerland, Montecito, and Goleta.
