Summer Activities- Try Sea Kayaking

Commune with nature, get some exercise and it’s easy.
  • Rent a kayak either a single or tandem to paddle with kids or a significant other.kayak
  •  Put on your life vest, sit on it, grab your paddle and go.

This is not the white water river type kayak, but a float on top, get a little bit wet, lazy man’s kayak.  Meander over the kelp beds, bask in the sun and enjoy the California coastline.

Most rentals start at 2 hours minimum.

Recommended local locations:
  • Beginners: Huntington Harbor (Huntington Beach)
  • Beginners and Intermediate: Santa Barbara (at the harbor) – warm up in the marina and head out into the ocean if it’s calm (try 8-10 a.m.) Kelp beds, sea lions, sometimes dolphins and occasionally whales can be seen!
  • Intermediate: Malibu – Requires beach entry directly into the ocean.  Similar ocean life to Santa Barbara

Other locations: Dana Point, San Diego, Moss Landing (Bird Sanctuary), Channel Islands from Santa Barbara (caves).

  • Waterproof sunblock and take it with you to reapply. (Don’t forget the upper leg, tops of the feet and back of the neck).
  • Sunhat
  • Swim trunks
  • Water and snacks
