  • We opted to get a tour from a shark amphibious tour. We were lucky to see the area from both land and water, and even got to see some wildlife swim up to us. This place is simply great.  more »

  • Well run, good slips, multiple shower and bathroom facilities out in the dock area restricted to slip renters. Very close Harbor Marine shop for your boat bucks. Also close convenience store, restaurants and parking. Nicely free of sea lions so the docks are quiet and intact.
  • Santa Barbara Harbour is a fantastic place to visit. There is plenty of parking and easy to navigate. Once inside there are several restaurants inside to enjoy as well a few small parks with some interesting visitor information placards.
  • It has many stores like Harbor Market, Brophy's, On The Alley and an ice cream shop. It if also fun to walk down the Breakwater.
  • Great seafood restraunt named brophy's to eat at. Pretty busy so put your name in before you start touring around the harbor
  • Great amenities and friendly staff. Bathrooms are never far away and they are kept very clean. The slips are packed in pretty tight, but that means they're are a lot available. Close to lots of attractions and there is a shuttle that can take you into downtown.

Where to stay in Santa Barbara

Blessed with a mild climate and lush location, Santa Barbara remains a playground for the rich and famous, so it's no surprise that accommodations can be extremely expensive here. The priciest hotels are near the water, so before you make your reservations, decide if staying beachside fits into your budget. You can find more affordable rooms at any one of the area's small motels, located just blocks from the beaches. These offer secure parking, cable TV, and free Wi-Fi.
