Ahoy Shipmate!


Welcome to the Official Website of the USS Santa Barbara (AE-28).

The Santa Barbara (aka The Santa B), was an Kilauea-class ammunition ship that served in the United States Navy from 1969 to 1998. This website was created to honor the ship and her crew. Currently, the website is going through some changes, so if the seas are a little rough, hang in there, calmer seas are on the horizon.

If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact the webmaster, Jim Masie,  at
