Choose Between Two Options

  • $149 for a 60-minute private morning or evening boat charter for up to 19 (a $250 value)
  • $59 for a 45-minute morning birthday party for kids aged 10 and younger (a $99 value)

Morning and evening charters cater to groups of up to 19 for a private party. Kids pile aboard the Lil' Toot to celebrate a birthday on the water. The captain gives each child a turn at the wheel.

Santa Barbara Water Taxi

A bright-yellow paint job, black trim, and a checkerboard motif adorn the Lil' Toot, traits it shares with New York taxicabs—but most cabs don't have a stash of life vests for adults and children aboard. The star of the Santa Barbara Water Taxi, Lil' Toot (named for its recognizable whistle and absolutely not for anything else) safely shuttles up to 19 passengers back and forth from Stearns Wharf to Santa Barbara Harbor. Captained by one of the company's Coast Guard–licensed pros, the ship—which uses a meager 4 gallons of fuel per day—also sets out on longer sunset voyages.

Very enjoyable!!

Little Toot was perfect! Sunset cruise on the harbor, visited the sea lions on the bouy and as the seas were calm went outside the harbor for the sunset. We enjoyed all of the holiday lights and it was the perfect setting for our family birthday celebration! Thank you!

This was a fun activity for a child's party. The kids really enjoyed going out on the water and getting to drive the boat!
