PADDLING SANTA BARBARA'S 'AMERICAN RIVIERA' Sandwiched between rugged coastal mountains and south-facing beaches, Santa Barbara is often called the American Riviera.  The dramatic geography and warm Mediterranean climate are best appreciated on the ocean, by kayak.  This guided kayak tour of the Santa Barbara Harbor and waterfront area is a wonderful experience for the whole family.  Our knowledgeable guides will take you on a journey through history, and offer you a front row seat to view wildlife of the region. From sea lions and sea stars to pelicans, egrets, and herons, our coastline has an abundance of beautiful creatures to admire.  If you're lucky you could paddle with a family of dolphins or wave to grey whales passing by on their yearly migration pattern.  This is the perfect activity if you are visiting Santa Barbara and looking for unique things to do with your friends or family.
