    The Exciting Online Dwight Brooks Model Collection Now Open for Viewing!

    Dwight Brooks was a most unusual man who built some very unusual boat models. Born in Minnesota, he worked in his family’s newsprint business, fought in the Korean War, founded a company that produced all of the Hobie skateboards sold in the US, became a jet pilot, a real estate developer, an entrepreneur, and a restorer of old cars and airplanes; but he was always an avid modeler whose work was featured in many modeling, boating and woodworking magazines.

    HELP SANTA BARBARA MARITIME MUSEUM CELEBRATE ITS 20TH BIRTHDAY ON July 29--VIRTUALLY!

    To celebrate its 20th anniversary, SBMM had planned a busy year, submitting its application for accreditation by American Alliance of Museums and renaming its collections facility the Kieding Collections Chandlery to honor of one of its founders. But then came the Covid-19 pandemic and required museum closures. Due to the mandated limits on public gatherings, SBMM has had to change its plans—no live birthday party with cake and members of the community to join in the fun--and find new ways to celebrate its anniversary, which is now less than a week away.

    The Mystery of the Marie Presentation by Teresa Newton-Terres, PMP®

    Nearly 60 years ago, on June 7, 1960, the Marie, a converted WWII Landing craft set out at sunrise from Santa Barbara Harbor with seven men working on a covert underwater Raytheon-related project…and was never seen again. Eventually, four victims’ bodies were recovered, but three disappeared along with the Marie’s life boat—the captain, a scientist, and an engineer (Diego “Jim” Terres, Jr). Only 2 years old when her father disappeared, Teresa Newton-Terres decided to investigate the story and try to solve the mystery of the Marie’s disappearance.

    Hans Hass: The Man Who Discovered the Sea Film Screening and Lecture by Leslie Leaney

    Known by divers internationally as the Pioneer of the Pioneers, Hans Hass started his diving career in the 1930s. He was the first free-swimming film maker to film and photograph sharks, manta rays, and whales in their natural environment. A prolific writer, Hass had published six books on diving by 1950. He left the underwater world in 1960 and was largely forgotten by the diving industry. Hans met Santa Barbara-based diving historian Leslie Leaney in 1997 and they formed a partnership that led to a revival of interest in Hans’ pioneering career.

    Keepers of the Light: The History of the Point Conception Lighthouse Reading and discussion with local author, Willard Thompson

    Point Conception, considered sacred ground by the Chumash, is the headland where California’s coast goes from a north-south orientation to east-west, making a natural division between Southern and Northern California. Ever since the Gold Rush Days, the Point Conception Lighthouse has guarded the treacherous Pacific waters where the Santa Barbara Channel and Pacific Ocean meet on the western edge of Santa Barbara County. Such a dangerous place for mariners, Point Conception was dubbed The Cape Horn of California.

    Marine Mammals, Sentinels of Ocean Health Lecture by Dr. Samuel Dover

    Marine mammals are sentinel species. They are barometers for current and potential negative impacts on individual and population levels, ocean and human health. The Santa Barbara Channel, Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary and Channel Islands are the Galapagos of North America. They are host to a plethora of marine life including six species of pinnipeds and 30 species of cetaceans. The Islands also have breeding rookeries for California sea lions, Northern elephant seals, Pacific harbor seals and Northern fur seals.
