Join us for a narrated ride about Santa Barbara’s history on the most iconic boat in the Harbor!
Disembark from either the Santa Barbara Harbor or our historically rich pier, Stearns Wharf, for a one-way trip adventure! Onboard Lil’ Toot, our Captain and crew dish out local history and lore of the Santa Barbara Waterfront and Harbor, telling exactly how these locations have shaped our beloved City’s history throughout the decades. This 15-minute excursion in the water is a perfect break from crowds with your family and friends, plus it is an excellent opportunity to see Santa Barbara’s shoreline and the Harbor’s marine life. Make sure to be on the lookout for our curious harbor seals and squadrons of giant pelicans at the bait barge!
Your curiosity will be satisfied regarding the many boats and luxury yachts we have stationed in our Harbor. Our Captain will be sure to point out all the celebrity yachts, impressive vessels, and will even share with you little-known history about the other boats you will pass while on your 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. Come tour the Santa Barbara Waterfront with us!

Our harbor tour is approximately 15 minutes and takes you to many of Santa Barbara’s most popular restaurants and destinations.
Santa Barbara can be warm during day and cool in evening, so it’s a good idea to wear layers or bring a light jacket. We also welcome onboard surfboards, strollers and bikes.
