About our Whale & Wildlife Cruise

Join us for an extraordinary adventure on our Wildlife Cruise, where the wonders of Santa Barbara’s marine life await discovery. Immerse yourself in the stunning beauty of the Santa Barbara Channel, a vibrant ecosystem teeming with life.

Santa Barbara boasts a rich diversity of cetacean species, ranging from playful dolphins to graceful porpoises. In fact, it’s astonishing to note that approximately one-third of all cetacean species found worldwide can be observed right here in the Santa Barbara Channel.

Our Wildlife Cruise offers more than just a journey; it’s an invitation to delve into the enchanting world of marine wildlife, right in our own backyard. Join us as we embark on an unforgettable voyage, where every moment is filled with wonder and awe, promising memories that will last a lifetime.


"The Azure Seas is immaculate, hosts are lovely, well stocked bar, this is an amazing experience in Santa Barbara and is also great for events. Have been to a couple of events on the boat and Kathy Hershman handles everything from catering to event planning - you're in good hands if you go with Celebration Cruises. What better way to commemorate a big life event than on a stunning yacht?"

Best Boat in SB

"The best boat in Santa Barbara for small to medium-sized celebrations & cruises. Plenty of outdoor deck area to roam around and enjoy the salt-spray and sun, and a very comfortable interior... and very gracious hosts!"

Magical Time

"My 10 year old son, sister and I had a fantastic time on our whale watching cruise. We saw one whale right upon leaving the harbor and then three more along with 3 pods of dolphins and sea lions. The crew was very friendly and very knowledgeable. Perry has exceptional customers service skills, he is a wonderful young man. It was a magical time."
