Who We Are
Daniel Cabe - Owner/Operator of California Explorer and Catch California)
Hi, my name is Dan Cabe. In 2006, I started California Explorer, which is the parent company of Catch California. California Explorer directs its travel opportunities and local experiences to foreign students studying English in Santa Barbara. The message and travel offerings of Catch California are customized to appeal to all who seek out the unique beauty, heritage, and tradition of this city.
I grew up in the mountains and beaches of Santa Barbara, and after traveling to many parts of the world, I've found that this is the place for me. The friendliness you will encounter while visiting arises from a certain happiness of living in a place of beauty and tranquility. It is easy to be happy and welcoming when each day offers the opportunity of a sunny mountain hike with views of the Pacific, or a glimpse of a pod of dolphins frolicking in the surf, or a short trip over the hills to the Santa Ynez Valley, where the traditions of the Old West are still alive.
We at Catch California want to share our favorite experiences with travelers from other parts of the state and from all over the world.
See you soon!
