Great instructor. Gave us the knowledge and confidence to get out and SUP on our own. Really enjoyed the experience.

We had a fabulous time touring the Santa Barbara coast on kayaks. Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and fun too and the shop was very careful about adhering to safety protocols. I would definitely do this again next time visiting the area.

Booked a sunset harbor tour when friends were visiting from out of town and was the most fun. Melanie was our guide and is such a gem. Highly recommend.

My boyfriend and I did the private SB wildlife tour and Melanie was great! We saw dolphins and sea lions and harbor lions and it was all so awesome! When we got there we were able to rent out a locker for free which was great because I had brought a small wallet (I thought I was going to need my ID but I didn't need to show it after all) and our car keys. I highly recommend this tour and this company.
