Flat, calm water to learn or brush up on skills. Easy access to get in and out. Spot dolphins, whales, seals. Great views on the water of Sea World, Fiesta Island, Mission Bay. One of the best workouts.

They call it one of the world’s largest man made water parks. Mission bay is an amazing SUP location of man made bays and parks located just minutes from the San Diego Airport.

One of the favorite coves is the Santa Barbara cove not just because it’s easy to access with parking right across the road. The Cove is protected on 3 sides so it’s usually very calm even on windy days especially near the shoreline. And it’s just across from the famous Wavehouse (artificial standing wave), Sea World and Fiesta Island along with its amusement parks and roller coaster. You can check out all the action on the boardwalk as well and the million dollar houses along the shoreline. This spot can’t be missed.
