All About Santa Barbara Sailing Center

Double Dolphin Sailing Cruises

The view is better from the water! Our 50ft sailing Catamaran, The Double Dolphin, casts off almost daily for coastal cruisesMusic on the Water cruises and more. Her 1400 square feet of deck space and dual-hull construction makes her comfortable, stable & safe. With a 41 passenger capacity we have plenty of room for a large party. On board, you will find beer, wine, champagne, water, sodas, and gourmet snacks. There are two restrooms on board for your convenience. Come and enjoy America’s Riviera while sailing alongside an entourage of sea lions, dolphins, whales, and birds. It’s a sensational sea story you will tell again and again.

Private Sailing Charter with Captain

Spend a few hours or a whole day aboard our yachts! You pick the yacht size and The Santa Barbara Sailing Center will provide you with a US Coast Guard Certified Captain. Your private group (6 passengers maximum) will experience the fun and magic of sailing along the Santa Barbara pristine coastline.  You can simply enjoy the views or feel free to help sail the yacht.
