Welcome to Paradise

O

n behalf of the staff, artists, photographers, designers, writers and others who have helped to make Passport Gateway Magazine the area’s most popular visitor guide since 1995, we invite you to join the millions of readers who have used our magazine to find the very best places to eat, shop and play in Paradise on the Pacific, where the unique east to west, southern facing coastal orientation creates the Mediterraneanlike abundance of sunshine, moderate temperatures and dazzling beauty that

­4

attracts more than six million annual visitors to this seaside sanctuary commonly called the American Riviera. This is the place that was claimed by Spain in 1542, when the first European to set foot on the California coast was greeted by gift-bearing Chumash Indians who had thrived here for thousands of years and are today one of the region’s largest employers and philanthropists. This was the moviemaking capital of the world in the early 20th Century. This is where Charlie Chaplin built a hotel and Jimmy Cagney owned a wharf; where Laurence Olivier married Vivien Leigh and John & Jackie Kennedy honeymooned; where miles of palm lined beaches frame a moving canvass of white sailboats on crisp blue seas and magnificent sunsets silhouette the rich, red terra cotta rooflines that surround one of California’s most popular Spanish Missions; where you’re 92 miles north of Los Angeles,


332 miles south of San Francisco, and, hopefully, far enough from home to become accustomed to a more relaxed, carefree lifestyle as you explore the sun-drenched beaches, picturesque harbor, gourmet restaurants, shopping treasures, museums, galleries, awardwinning wineries and historical sites. This is also the place where you’ll find charming sidewalk cafes and worldclass restaurants; and, where you’ll enjoy shopping adventures at first-class national and international stores as well as our eclectic mix of locally owned shops, boutiques and galleries. This is the home of five Nobel Prize winners; media celebrities Oprah Winfrey, Laura Schlessinger

and Dennis Miller; entertainers Jeff Bridges, Carol Burnett, John Cleese, Kevin Costner, Bo Derek, Kirk Douglas, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Dennis Franz, Tab Hunter, Kathy Ireland, Michael Keaton, Cheryl Ladd, Christopher Lloyd, Rob Lowe, Fess Parker, Eva Marie Saint and Jonathan Winters; singers and songwriters Jeff Barry, Jackson Browne, Christopher Cross, David Crosby, Barry DeVorzon, Bruce Johnston, Kenny Loggins, Jim Messina, Peter Noone and Glen Phillips; TV/film producers and directors Bruce Brown, Chris Carter, Tom Pollock, Ivan Reitman, Joel Schumacher, Dick Wolf and Robert Zemeckis; bestselling authors Jack Canfield, Barnaby Conrad and Sue Grafton; sports legends Jimmy Connors, Fred Couples, Tommy Curren and Andy Granatelli; business titans Gene Montesano, Charlie Munger, Paul Orfalea, Fred Siegal, Harold Simmons, Herb Simon and Ty Warner; and, all of the rest of us who live, work and play in one of the world’s favorite destinations. Welcome to paradise. We’re glad you’re here.  - Betty Carroll ­5

World C lass W hale Watching Santa Barbara Channel Named Best Whale Watching by Discovery Channel

R

ecently featured on Discovery Channel as the world’s best whale watching area, the Santa Barbara Channel abounds with migrating gray whales in the winter and early spring, and the giant blue and humpback whales in the summer months. The Santa Barbara Channel is recognized as one of the world’s prime areas for whale watching. The unique East-West configuration of the channel and the converging ocean currents in the area provide ideal conditions during the summer months for the blooming of large quantities of krill, the favored food for blue and humpback whales...and Santa Barbara lies right on the path of the migrating California gray whales, making Santa Barbara one of the favored viewing spots on the West Coast. The charter boat CONDOR Express, in conjunction with museums around the world, offers whale watching trips throughout the various whale seasons to carry whale watchers, researchers and TV and film crews into the channel to experience these remarkable animals. The California Gray whales, which now number over 25,000 animals (they are now back to their pre-whaling population), migrate past the channel islands in December, January and February as they move southward toward their calving and mating grounds in Baja. From mid February through the end of April, the herd travels with the newborn calves close by Santa Barbara as they return to their feeding grounds in Alaska...completing a phenomenal 12,000 mile migration. Blue and humpback whales are regular visitors to channel waters, with pods of animals

being sighted during summer and fall months. From May through October, blues and/or humpbacks are sighted in the waters surrounding Santa Rosa and Santa Cruz Islands... and during the busiest times they are joined by fin and minke whales, so that it often is possible to see all four species of whales feeding in the same area at the same time. Such a biodiversity in regards the great whales is seldom seen outside of the nutrient rich waters of the Arctic and Antarctic regions. The blue whale is the largest animal ever to be on the face of the earth. Measuring up to 100 feet in length and weighing 100 tons or more, blue whales are larger by far than the largest of the dinosaurs and immensely larger than anything on earth today. The largest land animal is the elephant, weighting about 6 tons. The tongue of the blue whale is larger than an elephant...in fact, a blue whale is about as massive as a whole herd of elephants. Trips to view the whales of Santa Barbara are run aboard the new CONDOR Express, one of the most comfortable charter boats in California. A jet powered catamaran, the Condor Express features all around seating on deck, a spacious sundeck and a full galley, serving hot and cold meals, soft drinks and a full cocktail bar. All whale watching trips are expertly narrated by naturalists providing you with information about the whales, dolphins and sea birds seen on the trip, as well as the natural history of this fascinating area. For whale watching trips or information, visit www.condorcruises.com or call: CondoR Express at (805) 882-0088 or 1-888-77-WHALE; and the Museum of Natural History at (805) 682-4711. ­27

The Endless Summer bar-café

A Top-Ten Seafood Spot By The Sea

R

ecently honored as one of the “Top 10 best spots around the West to enjoy seafood along with a seaside view”, in the June, 2007 issue of Sunset Magazine, The Endless Summer bar-café is named for the world-famous surfing film made in the early sixties that helped define the genre; and mirrored the surf culture which has become such a part of the California lifestyle. In the late 90’s, local restaurateurs Steve Hyslop and Larry Stone were introduced to the filmmaker, Bruce Brown, who gave them his blessing to open a restaurant and donated much of the memorabilia that is on display along with more contemporary boards, graciously donated by the shapers who made them, and, décor celebrating the current surfing scene. The large bar at the center of the restaurant features a million dollar view overlooking boats at the harbor, the city, and the Santa Barbara Riviera. Many of the Surf videos that scroll on the TV’s feature local breaks and surfers, and, of course The Endless Summer plays along with other sporting events. The restaurant is framed on either side by two covered yet open air patios, called “Lanais”, which makes outdoor dining a year round option. The South Lanai features two outdoor “Pool Tables with a View” which are a draw for families who are looking for something for their kids to do, while mom and dad can put their feet up and sip a cold one. Both Lanais are available for private parties. The food and drink are designed with the lifestyle in mind also; The Endless Summer bar-café is the kind of place one might drop in to share Mai-Tais and Popcorn Shrimp before or after heading out to the surf or to savor the sesame-crusted ahi on a warm spinach salad before a leisurely stroll along the breakwater. Many of the local fisherman finish their day here; most are happy to share their stories, and you’ll have a great story to share after dining at this surfing-inspired gem atop Chuck’s Waterfront Grill by the boats at 113 Harbor Way; (805) 564-4666. ­336 4

The Land Shark

Showing you Santa Barbara by Land and Sea!

P

erhaps you’ve seen the big colorful boat on wheels cruising the streets of Santa Barbara with passengers smiling on it. And perhaps you’ve wondered, “What is that thing? And where is it going?” Well, it’s eventually going to splash into the sea! That’s right, the 39’ “Land Shark” is one-half bus and onehalf boat, and is the only way to see Santa Barbara by both land  and sea. Up to 49 passengers are treated to a 90-minute tour of Santa Barbara’s historical landmarks and rich maritime history, which

is personally narrated in a most humorous and entertaining style. Adults are enthralled with the city’s unique history and architecture, while children can’t wait to splash into the ocean. Suddenly, after 60 minutes of land cruising, the Land Shark reaches the boat-launching ramp and, with an amusing airline-style safety and life jacket demonstration by the tour guide, splashes into the big blue sea. ­56

For the next 30 minutes, passengers are now cruising the beautiful harbor and Santa Barbara waterfront, with exquisite views of the city and mountainous backdrop as seen only from a boat. The witty tour guide tells of maritime legends and the colorful history of Stearns Wharf (California’s oldest working wharf ), the Breakwater and the coastal oil platforms. And perhaps even more fun is the citing of numerous marine mammals, such as seals, sea lions, dolphins and local sea birds, who seem unafraid of this “Land Shark.” The comical tour guide now displays his knowledge as a marine naturalist. As the boat climbs back to dry land and returns to its original departure area near State Street and Stearns Wharf, it is not uncommon to hear children ask their parents “Can we do that again?” This fun-filled amphibious adventure is truly one of Santa Barbara’s “Must-Dos.” Land & Sea Tours offers these adventures daily at 12pm & 2pm (and 4pm in summer). Tickets are only $25 for adults, and $10 for kids 10 and under. Reservations are not required. A jacket or sweatshirt is suggested, and don’t forget your camera! Private tours and sunset cocktail cruises are also available. For more information, call (805) 683-7600, or visit their website at www.theLandShark.net

Welcome to Rancho San Marcos Where The Golf Gods Play

C

onveniently located off highway 154, just 15 minutes west of the Santa Barbara beaches, and 15 minutes east of the wine country community of Santa Ynez and Danish village town of Solvang, Rancho San Marcos Golf Course delivers a new level of golf course quality and customer service.

“At Rancho San Marcos Golf Course, golf isn’t just a game. It’s an experience.” - Golf Today An instant classic since its inception in 1998, this Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed course located on 300 spectacular acres is both a treasure to behold and a strategic challenge that exudes the understated elegance and exclusivity that only private clubs extol. Rancho San Marcos offers magnificent vistas surrounded only by nature’s beauty adorned by centuries-old oak trees and stunning views of the Santa Ynez River Valley, distant furrowed peaks, and eagles soaring above Lake Cachuma – without a trace of urban development in sight. This world class course, tucked deep into the valley floor of the Santa Ynez Mountains has kept the ­60

essence of the old ranch which was located here since the Spanish land grant of 1804. The simple and pastoral setting combined with the classic game of golf, makes Rancho San Marcos the ideal location to forget the troubles of the world and reminisce on a quieter, simpler time. At 6,939 yards and a par 71, Rancho San Marcos provides golfers of all skill levels such an enjoyable and rewarding golf experience that Golf Magazine named this Ty Warner property one of the “Top 10 Golf Courses You Can Play”, and, Golf Digest awarded it 4 ½ stars among the top 201 golf courses in the United States. Rancho San Marcos and its stunning scenery have also been featured in national advertising campaigns for both print and television. Archeological evidence discovered at Rancho San Marcos indicates that Prehistoric hunters and gathers occupied this region for more then 9,000 years. Descendants of the Chumash Indian tribe, one of North America’s most complex hunting and gathering societies, were active participants in Rancho San Marcos archaeological investigations. For more information about this spectacular golf experience, call (805) 683.6334 or visit www.rsm1804.com.
