Things To Do In The Santa Barbara Harbor

Santa Barbara Sailing Center

In our 70+ years of business in the Santa Barbara harbor, you can imagine we’ve been asked a lot of boating questions. And one of the most common questions we receive is, “Do you guys rent boats?” Without fail, our answer is always, “Sorry, no, but we know who does. The Santa Barbara Sailing Center! Let me give you their contact info….”

Santa Barbara Sailing Center has been around since 1966. That’s 52 years for those of you counting. We happen to think they’re doing something right. The Sailing Center provides on-the-water experiences such as:

  • Sailing instruction
  • Private boat charters for parties and events
  • Kayak and paddleboard excursions
  • Sunset cruises
  • Channel cruises
  • And much more!

If you have an event you’d like to host in the harbor – on or off the water – they can help.

Their mission is to “encourage individuals of all ages and levels of experience to enjoy Santa Barbara from the water.” At Chandlery Yacht Sales we often explain to our clients how boating is “built-in family time” and SBSC strives to prove this point. They are able to provide a venue to enable your friends and family to make awesome memories at events such as birthdays, graduations, weddings, engagements, and other celebrations.

Santa Barbara Sailing Center — What they have for kids

SBSC also hosts a variety of kid activities, including after-school camps, summer camps (both sailing and kayaking/SUP), safety training, and birthday parties. We live on the Central Coast….why not take advantage of the beach and ocean and the amazing weather in our own backyard? Kids love this stuff!

Additionally, Santa Barbara Sailing Center is an accredited American Sailing Association school and they have over forty boats in their fleet from which to choose. Whether you are looking for a relaxing two-hour excursion on the water with a friend or an afternoon-long corporate event centered around boating in the Santa Barbara Harbor, they are the people to call. They will help plan your event and then execute it professionally, with 52 years of experience to back it up.

Conveniently located in the Santa Barbara harbor next to the launch ramps, there is plenty of public parking and even a Boat Launch Mini Mart next to their office to get a snack and drink before your sailing adventure.

For more information about all the services they provide, check out their website or call 805-962-2826. You won’t be disappointed!

And don’t forget: if you want to explore owning your own sail or power boat, we’d be delighted to help. We are a family owned and operated company with over 70 years of helping make boating dreams come true.
