    I organized a private 1-hour sunset cruise on the Double Dolphin catamaran for the Friday night before the wedding. We had about 30 guests aboard and they accommodated our group (and our delay in departure due to traffic near the harbor). The captain and his team were very friendly and our guests enjoyed the scenic harbor ride and the wine/beer/champagne available onboard. I would recommend this excursion for brides with guests visiting the Santa Barbara area.
