The Paddle Sports Center has been Santa Barbara’s premier Kayak | SUP | Surf rental, instruction, and tour center for over 25 years! We invite you to experience the magic and beauty of the American Riviera from a unique perspective. We are the paddler’s choice, for our staff is some of the most experienced watermen/mermaids around. Kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding along the Santa Barbara coastline is a must-do activity for the visitor and local alike. Paddlers frequently see Sea Birds, Sea Lions, Dolphins, and even Whales! Whether you are looking for a fun activity with friends, a memorable date with your sweetheart, or have a large group, we have an exciting array of options available.
