Overview

The sunsets in Santa Barbara are unique as the coast faces South, so the sun sets over land most of the year. The colors of the evening blend into the hills and the harbor is the best place to see the glow of the American Riviera… it really is incredible! Experience it for yourself on this Sunset Harbor Santa Barbara kayak tour!

What to Bring

  • Reusable water bottle to stay hydrated!
  • Sunscreen, sun protection (hat, UV shirt), sunglasses (available at the shop)
  • Waterproof case (available at the shop) or waterproof camera

We have everything you need for your sunset kayak tour including lockers and changing rooms available. Public bathrooms are also available nearby. Paid all day parking is very close, and we have bike racks behind the shop if you are human powered all day!

Location

Santa Barbara Harbor

We’re conveniently located in the Santa Barbara Harbor next to the Fish Market and Brophy Bros. Our paddlers frequently see Pelicans, Sea Lions, Dolphins & Whales!

You can easily walk or bike to the Harbor from the many hotels in downtown Santa Barbara or right off the 101. Feel free to call, email or stop in with any questions.

GREAT

We loved our kayaking trip with Ryan as our guide. The ferry ride was awesome, food was great and our kayaking through caves very exciting! Lots of swells.

AWESOME! GREAT FOR KIDS!

We contacted the Sports Centre late with a large group wanting to do a quick paddle arounf the harbour. Jordan looked after us, made sure we had everything we needed, and had a great time with the kids paddling around the harbour. Great for kids aged 5 up.
