Excellent SUP experience.

Went Stand up Paddleboarding with them (our first time), and we were really happy.

Molly was our trainer during the lesson. She was patient, and took time to make sure we were comfortable at each stage of the lesson. Highly recommended!

Great instruction, super friendly instructors Orion & Kim who provided an enjoyable, safe and fun 1.5 hours for our group of 9 women. Paddle boarded in the channels and luckily not windy so quite smooth. May want to bring your own rash guard if you have it, we wore wetsuits but may be hot got some.

Andre is a RockStar! He made our first experience on a paddle board so positive and pleasant. He has a great gift to help others feel relaxed, so learning without fear was accomplished.

Great Experience on the Water
We scheduled early morning stand up paddle boarding lessons and had a wonderful experience with Cal Coast Adventures. The station on the beach was easy to find. Our guide Ryan was personable and easy-going, which helped calm our nerves. He first went over the basics on the sand then eased us onto the water one by one. Since it wasn’t too cold out, wetsuits weren’t necessary. Once we were all out and ready to go, Ryan guided us to the calm waters of the marina, along the breakers then around and under the pier.

It was a beautiful sunny morning and we enjoyed seeing the seals, boats and mountains from a new vantage point. My daughter had to leave her glasses behind so as not to lose them, so she wasn’t able to see as much, but still managed. If you have a strong eye prescription, you will want to either wear contacts or bring a pair of glasses you can spare to lose and somehow secure to your head. Ryan shared many interesting facts about the history of the area which also made for an educational experience.

Although a couple of us fell off a few times as we were forewarned would likely happen, it was part of the fun and we are glad we tried it. Definitely a highlight of our trip!

Got a ton from my lesson
Mar 2021
Took a trip to Santa Barbara as a family getaway but wanted to get some SUP time on the water.

It was not my first time on a SUP but sought a lesson to develop/improve some skills. Mitch and crew were awesome!. The time was so worth it. The instruction and knowledge of local waters was great. They really upped my SUP game, I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Perfect experience
Feb 2021 • Friends
Finally I did it! Always wanted to try stand up paddle boarding, on our last day at Santa Barbara we made it to cal coast adventures and had a private lesson for sup with our friends, the instructor was super funny and we had a lot of fun, he also took us to catch some waves with the sup which is totally an extra! Will be coming back for more lessons with them in the future !

Woohoo! The owner, Mitch, was your instructor and he came back telling all of us how fun you all were. I wish I was the one that was there catching some waves instead of being in the office! So glad y'all had so much fun and maybe next time I can be the instructor! Take care.
