#3 of 9 in Adventure in Santa Barbara
In addition to stand-up paddleboarding lessons, Cal Coast Adventures offers guided tours and rental services.

Private surf lessons will introduce you to the sport and ensure you receive lots of personal attention from your instructor. If you prefer to learn with others, sign up for a group lesson. To stay dry and give your leg muscles a workout, go for a bike or hiking tour. These are designed to be leisurely and fun, which makes them suitable for families with kids. If you're looking for a package of activities your group can enjoy together, consider a mix of surfing lessons and bubble soccer.

  • We want to give a real big shout out to RYAN!!! Ryan was our kayak tour guide. He was terrific and the whole experience was amazing. Highly recommend this group for their kayak tours. Ryan made the experience better by sharing info about what we were seeing and taking us to interesting points around the harbor. Go check this out.
  • Nate was an outstanding guide...funny, thoughtful, safe and informative. The bikes were high quality. The reservation process was easy and the staff was very professional. Cal Coast is a first rate operation. Our family had a very enjoyable morning that was tailored to accommodate our seven year daughter.
  • I will be moving to Santa Barbara soon and decided to explore the city with a bike tour. My experience was mind blowing. The tour guide was a fantastic guy who I enjoyed talking to during the trip. He gave me a couple of options to chose from clearly explaining what to expect from each plan. He was very understanding and accommodating. Though I don't bike regularly, I was able to bike 26 miles with him in just two hours---enjoying every minute in the breezy, sunny Santa Barbara. I will highly recommend it to anybody who wants to explore the natural offerings of Santa Barbara.
  • Great business! Mitch was easy to deal with, professional and prompt when responding to my calls and emails. Our surf instructor, Jacob, was very knowledgeable and great with my to boys. We had a blast and will use them again in the future. Give these guys a call or shoot an email to schedule a lesson. You won't regret it!
  • Great tour! We had never been to Santa Barbara and we were only in town for a day. The city bike tour gave us a good overview of the beautiful spots Santa Barbara has to offer. Our tour guide also gave us suggestions on where to eat dinner and hang out at night. This town is gorgeous! The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, respectful, and easy to talk to.
