Spend an incredible evening sampling fine local wines and craft brews during this Sipping on the Sea Cruise.
Your evening of indulgence will begin when you board the luxury catamaran departing from Santa Barbara Harbor. Find a comfy seat on the bow where you can watch the waves crash and the sun set or find a nice cozy corner to visit with your group. There isn't a bad seat in the house on this 50' vessel with over 1,400 square feet of deck space!
As you cruise the Santa Barbara coastline, you will be treated to a guided sampling of either fine local wines or the area's best craft brews. Each cruise features a new local company, so be sure to inquire about the tastings at the time of booking! Sip, compare, and enjoy the approximately 4-5 tastings offered and then enjoy a glass of your favorite in your complimentary Govino glass! The pours do tend to be generous, but guests are welcome to purchase additional bottles or glasses on board. You may also want to visit the on board snack bar for a delicious anti-pasta platter to nibble on throughout this approximately 2-hour tour of Santa Barbara.
Between sips, be sure to keep your eye on the water as sightings of dolphins, sea lions, and other marine wildlife are extremely common! As the sun slips down over the horizon, you won't want this evening to end!
