From the Wharf to the Harbor, we take you to the must-see destination, Santa Barbara Maritime Museum. Check out the world-class restaurants offering the freshest seafood available – like Brophy Brothers and Santa Barbara Fish Market. You can also enjoy the incredible scenery by strolling out on the breakwater and taking in a magnificent sunset.

Lil’ Toot offers a first-rate experience and tour of the Santa Barbara waterfront. Our captain and crew will fill the cruise with interesting facts and tidbits about local harbor history, celebrity-owned yachts, wildlife, and more! With a smile on its bow and bubbles rising from its smokestack, the Lil’ Toot is a Santa Barbara tradition that has delighted guests of all ages since 2003.

Lil’ Toot also offers private parties, corporate events, memorials at sea, and kids’ birthday parties. You can even get married on the Lil’ Toot by an ordained captain!
