Santa Barbara Boating

Hit the Water!

One major factor in Santa Barbara's timeless appeal is the Pacific Ocean. Our year-round temperate weather and wide range of accessible aquatic options-including world-class surfing, scuba diving off the nearby Channel Islands, sailing, swimming, fishing, and much more-make the ocean an unbeatable Santa Barbara resource for planners of corporate and group travel and special events.

  • Welcome your delegates with a reception and dinner cruise on the deluxe Channel Cat catamaran

  • Give your group travelers a Santa Barbara day they'll remember forever-on a whale-watching excursion to the Channel Islands or a combination ocean kayak tour and horseback ride

  • Stage a team-building corporate sailing regatta aboard 30- to 50-foot oceangoing yachts, including training, skippering, a race start, and two hours of sailing on the Santa Barbara Yacht Club's championship race course

  • Arrange an unforgettable Santa Barbara-style farewell reception with a guided evening moonlit champagne kayak tour of the harbor.
