Ride: Approximately 18 miles with 625 feet of climbing

Longer Option: Approximately 26 miles with 1,300 feet of climbing

Your adventure begins as you meet up with your guides and group at The Canary Hotel before a short drive to Girsh park. There, enjoy some light snacks and a brief orientation before settling onto your bike for a relaxing ride along the Santa Barbara coast. The ride takes you through the campus of University of California, along the oceanfront bike paths and into the unique Hope Ranch neighborhood before taking you to downtown Santa Barbara. There, you can choose to continue your ride with a trip to Skofield Park or check into your hotel. Later, rejoin for drinks and a fresh, southwestern dinner at Casa Blanca Restaurant.

Day 2:

Meals Included: Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: The Canary

This  morning, we begin by setting off on an early morning drive to Ventura Harbor. your boat for a 90-minute trip to Santa Cruz Island—California’s largest island filled with plenty of diverse wildlife and plant life. Upon arrival, settle into your kayak for a guided tour of Santa Cruz’s stunning sea caves.

Take a break with a picnic lunch set on a sunny beach. After some exploring, we journey back to the mainland. This evening, our guides take the kids out for a slice of pizza in Ventura while parents get to explore Ventura’s downtown nightlife and dining experiences on their own.

Day 3:

Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Accommodation: The Canary

Ride: Approximately 12 miles with 250 feet of climbing

After breakfast, pedal along tranquil coastal paths to the quaint surf town of Carpenteria. Relax from the morning ride with a cup of coffee and the feel of sun-warmed sand beneath your feet at Carpenteria State Beach. Then, you may either hop on your bike for a return ride to Santa Barbara or catch a van ride back.

Upon return, enjoy an independent lunch in one of State Street’s tasty cafes before heading out for some time in the water. You can either catch a surf lesson with the Santa Barbara Surf School, do some stand-up paddle boarding, or simply soak up some sun. This evening, indulge in a fresh, locally-sourced seafood dinner at Hendry’s Boathouse, situated right on the coast.

Longer Option: Approximately 24 miles with 500 feet of climbing

Or if you’re hoping to fit in one last ride, pedal through Hope Ranch for a final coastal ride.

After your morning of outdoor fun, return to your room to freshen up for departure. Rejoin the group for a farewell lunch at a bistro downtown before heading to the airport for your flight home.

They are just great!!!
They have a no-nonsense ambience.
The Dormitory is adequate, very clean and comfortable.
The food was very tasty, homely and had a good variety.
The activities catered to our satisfaction. They are provided with lots of patience. Every staff member is so friendly and they ensure that you enjoy the outing.
We were a family with people from all are groups. They took care of every individual needs. Our aged mother was made very comfortable, and they arranged a chair for her at every activity area.
We spent almost two days and one night. And we enjoyed every moment.
If one is looking for a good outing, this is the place. Total value for money. Above all it's the passion of the staff that makes them better than most places around Bangalore.

Just a couple of weeks ago, our team had been to ‘Eagles Unbound Adventure Camp’ for a team outing. It was one of the best outings that we have had and a lot of credit goes to Mr. Sunil Chris for being the perfect host. He and his team had ensured that every minute detail was taken into consideration and delivered as promised. The fact that the organizers were able to feel the pulse of our team and plan activities accordingly had built the right tone for team bonding. The hygiene and quality of food served was par excellence. I would recommend ‘Eagles Unbound’ to anyone planning a team outing.
