What you'll do

You’ve never had a Santa Barbara Happy Hour like this! Leaving from our historically rich pier, Stearns Wharf, and cruising down our sun-kissed coastline, enjoy 1.5 hours of sea breeze, sunshine, & coastal-inspired libations aboard the 70’ multi-level yacht, Azure Seas.

With a full bar on board, our staff on Azure Seas will come to you for your Happy Hour drink order. We want you to be able to enjoy your company and the beautiful scenery that Santa Barbara has to offer. Our American Riviera coastline will make you forget where you are as you look over our sun-drenched beaches towards the tippy top of the Santa Ynez mountains during the happiest hour of the day. Come enjoy a one-of-a-kind Santa Barbara Happy Hour with Celebration Cruises aboard the Azure Seas.

Choose between General admission (for all ages) or First Class (12 years old and above). Our First Class tickets are our most popular due to having full access to the boat, exclusive access to our rooftop deck, priority boarding, and priority drink service.

This is a public cruise and per our State Covid Requirements, we have changed our max capacity from 46 passengers to 36 passengers. We allow a max of 16 passengers for our main deck and a max of 20 passengers as First Class for our rooftop deck. We require a mask to be worn at all times except when eating and drinking.

Where you'll be

Before you arrive for your cruise there are many shops and restaurants that you can explore, but just remember to check-in 15 minutes before your departure time for we leave promptly at the time of your reservation.

Great views of coastlines, dolphin sightings, tasty happy hour drinks. Rated as 4 vs. 5 stars because I asked a question pre cruise that was never answered and there were conflicting instructions in confirmation vs. direct messaging on how early to arrive before departure time.

For the cost, this excursion isn’t awful but I walked away with a very blah feeling from it. It was a VERY chilly/windy night which was out of anyone’s control but that made the water kind of rough and so once everyone was seated, you more or less couldn’t go anywhere or you weren’t remaining upright. The one drink provided with ticket cost was good but really small and there were no “snacks” of any kind offered or advertised. When I asked staff, they said the selection was meager at best and offered some m&m’s. The onboard staff was honestly great despite everything. I was grateful I got to see some dolphins and some sea lions. For anyone who hasn’t seen these things or hasn’t been out on a bigger boat, this would be a decent excursion for you. As someone who has been on water my entire life, I enjoyed but it was very lackluster to me, and I probably wouldn’t go again, sorry to say.
