Overview of Arroyo Burrow Park

Arroyo Burrow Park

California Mid
USA West

Home

Arroyo Burrow is a popular place for both dive classes and experienced divers. Mostly protected from the Pacific swell (as is most of the Santa Barbara coastline), you'll find this a pleasant dive. There is a restaurant in the park, as well as all other expected facilities.

Directions: In Santa Barbara off Highway 101, take Las Positas Road exit (Highway 225) to the South for 1.7 miles. Turn right (West) on Cliff Drive, and you'll find the entrance in 1/4 mile.

04/10/2006 Rickster (Avg: 4.04 Review) - We went out to the left on the first dive, and didn't find anything but sand with a few crabs, a thornback ray, and a few skates. The second dive we went straight out and found a great reef/rock system. There were all kinds of fish, a huge sheep crab, Ling cod and plant life. The vis was about 16 feet. The surf was 1-2 feet. This is a great place to dive when the conditions are good.

12/27/2005 Ron Clough (Avg: 3.31 Review) - I have dove this site twice. Both times I was east or central off the main beach. I heard there were reefs but all I found was sand mixed with an occasional kelp holdfast. There are very good facilities here but not such good diving to my knowledge. I hear the reefs may be out further or to the west. Good luck.
