Frances Morehart and family aboard the Ranger for her 100-year Birthday Celebration. Before SBMM opened its doors, Jack (now deceased) and Frances Morehart donated the Ranger to SBMM. Ranger is now the Museum’s Flagship, and is the oldest vessel in the Santa Barbara Harbor!
This is the Ranger Restoration Crew celebrating the Ranger’s 100-year Birthday. 21 volunteers put in more than 600 hours to help restore this historic vessel.

The Charity Regatta, which is part of a national movement, will be a day of boat racing, entertainment and fun. In addition to the regatta race, this year there will be free family friendly exhibitions from the Santa Barbara Zoo, Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History Sea Center, and Santa Barbara Maritime Museum.
Attendees are provided inspiration & supplies to create handmade Love Letters to the Sea. The letters empower participants to act as a voice for the ocean, creating political change and ocean protection. The heartfelt letters & handmade envelopes, decorated with marine creatures, will be delivered to world dignitaries & global decision makers by Jean-Michel Cousteau of Ocean Futures Society & Jack Johnson Musician/Environmentalist.

This project will result in a full closure of Castillo Street from US Highway 101 to the Union Pacific Railroad tracks for about two months. The southbound on/off ramps to US Highway 101 at Castillo Street will also be closed for the duration of this project. Motorists headed southbound may detour at the US Highway 101 off ramps at West Carrillo Street or Garden Street. Local traffic near Castillo Street will detour onto State Street or Garden Street.
