Santa Barbara, with its wonderful climate and beautiful mountain vistas, is often called the Mediterranean of the California coast. The city wharf to the northeast and Leadbetter beach to the west borders the harbor. There are over 1100 slips that range in size from 20-110’. There is still an active fishing fleet in the harbor with over 75 commercially licensed vessels plying the waters of the Santa Barbara Channel.

Speaking of the channel, Santa Barbara is just a short trip from the famous Channel Islands National Park, which consists of Anacapa, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa and San Miguel Islands. If you like free diving, kayaking and just plain old “gunkholing” then these island coves are a perfect place to explore. For the more adventurous, Catalina Island is 90 miles away to the Southeast. 50 miles to the west and north is Point Conception, listed as one of the seven most formidable capes in the world.

Closer to home, The Santa Barbara Yacht Club holds “Wet Wednesday” races 9 months out of the year as well as several club cruises to the Channel Islands and Catalina. There is a youth sailing program and of course, there is terrific surfing right off the breakwater and Leadbetter beach.

The harbor is located just a short walk from State Street, the main shopping district of beautiful downtown Santa Barbara. If you want to sightsee, you can catch a bus right in the harbor that will take you up State Street to the famous Santa Barbara Mission. There are plenty of stops along the way so you can explore the town as well.

Just like you, we appreciate Santa Barbara for its wonderful climate and beautiful mountain vistas. Bordered by the City Wharf to the East and Leadbetter Beach to the West, the harbor has over one thousand slips that range in size from 20-110 feet. It is an exciting and rewarding place to be a boater, and that’s why we are honored to be the biggest and best boat broker for Santa Barbara.
