Central Coast Kayaking Overview
Central Coast kayak rentals, canoe rentals and (SUP) stand-up paddleboard rentals are available at harbors, lakes and beaches across the region. Many rental shops also offer tours and lessons. From the open ocean to calm harbors and secluded lakes we've found the perfect places to kayak on the Central Coast. These water sports are easy, fun and require little experience, making them the perfect summertime activity. Rent a paddleboard (SUP) and cruise along Cannery Row through kelp beds teaming with sea otters. Paddle along the shores of Lake Cachuma outside of Santa Barbara.
