Beautiful service

We had an amazing day with the most beautiful sunset for our wedding that SBSC helped us capture. We are so grateful for the experience they provide our guest and us. Thank you so much once again!

When I pitched the idea of a small sailboat wedding to my (now) husband, he loved the idea! The challenge was... how do we make it happen? Enter the Santa Barbara Sailing Center. A 2-hour, chartered sail at sunset was the perfect match for our elopement ceremony and the boat provided a gorgeous backdrop for our nautical nuptials! Our captain (Captain Dan) was amazing as he worked with us to find a space on the water that wasn't too rocky so we could say "I do"! Everyone was so nice and accommodating. For those hosting a larger affair, they have bigger boats to choose from and even offer catering! Definitely recommend!

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.
