Santa Barbara Harbor

The Santa Barbara Harbor is your launching pad for sailing the scenic Santa Barbara coastline, and venturing beyond to the Santa Barbara Channel and around the remote Channel Islands National Park. Santa Barbara’s predominant northwest winds create the perfect opportunity for the novice to learn basic sailing skills inside the harbor in a class with a local instructor. Or, consider chartering a sailboat with a captain for your private group. Conditions are also ideal for the experienced sailor to sharpen skills in the open water.

Sailing Excursions

Guided sailing tours can be an excellent choice for a romantic date, a fun sightseeing activity for big or small groups, or a unique option for team building or corporate events. For the ultimate Santa Barbara evening, reserve an exclusive private excursion for you and your sweetheart during a stunning Santa Barbara sunset sail. Hoping to catch a glimpse of migrating whales or playing dolphins? Go with a group on daily whale-watching excursions.
