Sail the ocean in Santa Barbara

Private or public cruise with a captain!

Santa Barbara Sailing Center offers a variety of many options to spend an amazing time on the water. The first option we recommend is public 2-hour sunset tour. You will see amazing coastal views and stunning sunset magic. Another option is a private charter which comes with a captain. You can rent for a few hours or for the whole day. We recommend renting a full day charter for up to 6 people. It's an amazing value and you unlock endless adventure opportunities. Captain will take you to Santa Cruz Island. You will be able to dive into crystal clear water from the boat, snorkel and hike the island. It's an unforgettable all-day adventure that you deserve!
