“Only $15! :D”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

I've rented kayaks all over California and Hawaii, and they all typically charge you at least $25/hour and up.

SEA Landing: $15 for 3 hours...unheard of!!!!! That's a deal!!!! :D

The caveats? There's no lesson, but ocean kayaking in sit-on-top kayaks is pretty self explanatory.

Staff is friendly, but no service. You just go up to the desk, pay, get a seat back and lifevest, and then you walk down to the dock where you grab your kayak, set the seat, and pull it into the water yourself. But if you've never kayaked before and/or are out of shape, I can see this being a problem, though I would assume one of the staff would help you if you asked.

“Convenient place to rent Kayaks in Santa Barbara harbor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

Our group of 6 (3 adults and 3 kids) rented tandem kayaks to explore the harbor for a few hours. We did not reservations.
They outfitted us with life jackets and kayaks . It is "self serve". There is No instruction, no help unstacking the kayaks from the tall rack( see their web site photo) and no help launching off the dock.Luckily the adults in our group all had experience paddling and the men had enough muscle to off load the kayaks .
The harbor area was a nice place to paddle , beautiful scenic views of the beach and mountain.
We paddled out to the green buoy where the sea lions bask. Then as we paddled back in through the harbor a sea lion approached us for a nice close up.
The site is convenient to the downtown. But would only benefit experienced paddlers that can do it themselves
