Santa Paddle

Calling all paddlers & Santas! Join in the Santa Paddle at 11 AM on Saturday, December 11 for some holiday fun on the water!

The Santa Paddle is a family –fun event in which participants can bring own equipment and launch from “C” dock in the Village (carry in own equipment from the Parking Lot) or launch at the Harbor Boat Launch area and paddle over to Ventura Harbor Village C Dock area.

Free event to participate. If you are in need of rental equipment, Ventura Boat Rentals in Ventura Harbor Village has a variety of options including kayaks, SUP’s and pedal boats (including fun, festive duck, swan, and dragon pedal bots). Prices per hour depend on equipment rental. Arrive early to secure your rental needs.

Starting point is in the Ventura Harbor Village bay in front of Ventura Boat Rentals where we’ll take a group photo on the water. Then it’s a beautiful paddle to the Channel Islands National Park Visitor Center and back for approximately 1 hour. Santa will be leading the group on his own SUP courtesy of Ventura Boat Rentals, and you’re invited to dress in the festive spirit with red and white, and of course Santa Hats. Safety first- please wear or have a life vest with you at all times. Don’t want to paddle? Electric Boats can be rented at Ventura Boat Rental as well to go alongside the paddle.
