Spend Father's Day Out on the Ocean

Spend Father's Day Out on the Ocean

June 01, 2021

This Father’s Day, don’t be a landlubber—make sure to rile your pops up and get him out on the ocean! Santa Cruz is a town surrounded by water, so it is only natural to throw on your swim trunks and head out to sea. You don’t have to be on a surfboard to get the full effect of the Pacific, there are many different ways to take your dad out on the ocean. Rent a kayak and explore the saltwater basin in calmer waters throughout the many bays that surround Santa Cruz — you can paddle out solo or join a guided tour. If your dad is more of an adrenaline junky, grab a paddleboard and try your hand at paddling down the waves with the surfers of Santa Cruz. Or try your luck at deep-sea fishing by renting a boat — there is nothing better than a little salty bonding time surrounded by the big blue. Happy Father’s Day!
