The Azure Seas

“Breathtaking” best describes a Santa Barbara experience aboard the Azure Seas. Our 70-foot multi-level luxury yacht can hold 46 passengers, ideal for family gatherings, corporate events, holiday parties and intimate weddings.

A variety of seating areas help the boat feel open and accessible even at full capacity and our full bar and ample space for appetizers or a catered meal make it ideal for your special event. Each time our boat leaves the dock, a highly trained crew is onboard to ensure every customer has a fun, safe and incredibly memorable experience.

Each private event on the Azure Seas is planned to perfection to meet every customer’s wants, needs and dreams. The Azure Seas can be chartered hourly for any event and for special holiday events like July 4th, the Christmas Parade of Lights and more.

Due to the nature of customizing your picture perfect party or event, contact us with as many details as you can to set up a phone call, tour of the boat or meeting to take the first steps to planning your Santa Barbara waterfront event aboard the Azure Seas.
