The best way to see Santa Barbara is from the sea! Hop in a kayak and visit the local wildlife. See sea lions, dolphins, sea stars, and more, in their natural habitat.
EXPERIENCE ALL THAT SANTA BARBARA HAS TO OFFER
The Santa Barbara Safari takes guest on a magical journey to experience the best of what Santa Barbara has to offer. Start off in the Santa Barbara Harbor, gliding on kayaks and meeting a few of our local friends – sea lions, harbor seals, a large variety of sea birds, dolphins and even whales!
After two hours of paddling with an experienced naturalist, you will have approximately 45 minutes to explore the harbor front. We recommend lunching!
Our wine tour partner (Wine Canyon Tours) will whisk you off to the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley in one of their luxurious chariots visiting two premium boutique vineyards (tastings included) and an olive oil tasting. Including a stop in the charming village of Los Olivos (free time to explore ultra-boutique tasting rooms, local breweries, outdoor cafes, specialty shops, etc.)
Both Wine Canyon Tours & Paddle Sports Center have 25 years of experience taking travelers out on the ocean and into wine country, respectively. This is a new offering in our partnership, combining both our most popular tours into a full day of adventure.
