Overview:

Channel Islands Outfitters is a professional guide service and rental company. CIO pioneered adventure at the Channel Islands National Park 25 years ago and was the first company in Santa Barbara to offer kayak rentals at the beach and in the harbor. For the past 25 years, CIO has been the premier rental company and outfitter for all water-based adventures in Santa Barbara.

What sets us apart? CIO created the training manual for Sit-on-top kayak guiding and is in the forefront of SUP lessons and guiding at the Channel Islands. Our gear is top of the line and is always fresh, clean, and comfortable.

What is SUP? SUP stands for Stand Up Paddleboarding. From the beach it appears as though people are walking on water, but that is in fact SUP. Standing up on a long/wide surfboard is easier than you'd think and CIO has a wide variety of boards for all skill levels. Change your vantage point and try SUP!

Looking for an island adventure? CIO let's you build your own experience be it a day trip to the sea caves or a camping trip on the largest island off the coast of California... we have lot's of options to satisfy your thirst for adventure. Guides from other parts of the world choose CIO because of our commitment to high quality gear and an unparallelled experience. CIO believes in leading from behind whenever possible, so you will get an amazing experience that will totally blow you away, beginners and seasoned veterans alike!

Come visit us online or call us... we'd love to set you up for an unforgettable Santa Barbara of Channel Islands adventure!

Cheers,

Garrett Kababik
