Since 1966, The Santa Barbara Sailing Center has been introducing people to the lifestyle and sport of sailing. We strive to enrich people's lives by providing unique on-the-water experiences. We are proud to make boating easily accessible through our professional sailing instruction, skippered sailing charters, bareboat charters, club member activities, kayak & stand up paddle board excursions, powerboat rentals, and daily cruises along the pristine Santa Barbara coastline. Our mission is to encourage individuals of all ages and levels of experience to enjoy Santa Barbara from the water. We provide a spectacular platform and venue to instill amazing memories with events such as graduations, birthdays, anniversaries, proposals, weddings or just an excuse to get family and friends together. We have a comprehensive Corporate Team-building Program which enables companies, large and small, to participate in sail boat races (regattas) which provide a new experience for their employees to grow and develop their leadership skills. We also offer peaceful memorial services for families and loved ones.
The Santa Barbara Sailing Center has over forty boats in our fleet, as well as a large crew of certified instructors with impressive sailing resumes, knowledge and experiences. We have provided professional instruction since 1966 and are committed to upholding our high standard of education and safety. The Santa Barbara Sailing Center is one of the largest accredited American Sailing Association (ASA) schools in the nation, and we are proud to have been chosen as the American Sailing Association School of the Year for two consecutive years. We invite you to join us on the water to experience your ultimate boating excursion.
