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.

Holiday hats and socks can be purchased ahead of time at Hats Unlimited and Lost in Socks or festive holiday tank tops in Barefoot Boutique. Water gear at Ventura Swimwear or Ventura Dive & Sport in the Ventura Harbor Village.

Afterwards, partake in a harbor side breakfast, warm coffee, delicious Bloody Mary, and sweet treats. Shop for fabulous gifts at Ventura Harbor Village’s seaside boutiques and artisan galleries for everyone on your list! Winter Wonderland & Holiday Market Place (including Santa, reindeer, and entertainers) will be waiting for you in the courtyard when you arrive back to shore!
