aboard Lil’ Toot

Step aboard Lil’ Toot for a fun daytime narrated boat ride between the Santa Barbara Harbor and Stearns Wharf. Running every half hour, this is sightseeing with a twist!

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.
