Join us for a narrated ride about the history of Santa Barbara!

Captain Fred and his crew dish out local history and lore of Santa Barbara waterfront and harbor, telling how the harbor has shaped the City’s history throughout the decades. A perfect break from crowds with your family and friends, this is your chance to see Santa Barbara’s shoreline and harbor’s animals, sea life and birds. Watch for curious harbor seals and squadrons of big pelicans.

Satisfy your curiosity about the boats and luxury yachts as Captain Fred points out celebrity yachts, interesting vessels, and shares little-known history about boats you pass on the tour.

With seating up to 19 passengers, our Santa Barbara narrated water taxi rides and harbor tours are offered on a first-come, first-served basis with tickets available at either stop. Tour the Santa Barbara Waterfront with us!
