Sunset kayaking tours

“We had a great time kayaking last weekend thanks to the guys at Paddle Sports Center. They were very patient answering our questions, everything went smoothly. It was my first time and they explained everything I needed to know beforehand.”

— Tabitha, Glendale

This place is awesome! The people are so nice, ready to help you out with all your paddling needs and the gear is very reliable and top notch. Definitely worth the money! Even if it's your first time on a kayak or SUP they welcome you and show you how to do it. There is enclosed water harbor access for the kayaks and SUPs or also beach access for the SUPs to launch through the waves at Leadbetter. Kind people, great gear and good vibes!

Professional, friendly and safe! Great paddling and stunning scenery

Fraser and his team at Paddle Sports Center in Santa Barbara are THE place to go for all your paddle sports needs. The staff is friendly and helpful. The system they have for their locals to rent with a membership is amazing! I stopped by his shop to learn more about how I can better operate my own small paddle board tour business and all I can say is that these guys DO IT RIGHT! Go with the business that provides quality equipment, trained, certified staff and a true passion for the water.
