Sailing

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. Predominant northwest winds create the perfect opportunity for the novice to learn basic sailing skills inside the harbor and for the experienced sailor to sharpen skills in the open water.

Hoping to catch a glimpse of migrating whales or playing dolphins on your excursion? Go with a group on daily whale watching excursions or reserve an exclusive sail for you and your sweetheart during a stunning Santa Barbara sunset sail.

With the wind at your back and the sails full, it’s easy to find peace and adventure just off of Santa Barbara’s shores with a special sailing excursion.
