Beautiful, must see city. We took free shuttle, then walked to transit center and boarded a city bus and rode around the neighborhoods. Don't need to buy an expensive excursion in Santa Barbara to enjoy its beauty.

They offer a cheap shuttle to town but can also walk since it is not far from dock. Wharf also very close by with a Maritime Museum.

Wear sunscreen! And bring swim stuff and a beach blanket! The beaches are absolutely amazing!

No hard port. Had to use Tender boats. Takes about 20 minutes to make the trip to shore on a crowded boat. Santa Barbara is a wonderful town with good eats and drink. Great place to explore.

Enjoyed the trolley bus tour. Very informative. We walked from the downtown area to the tender area. Very enjoyable.

Nice port, even though we had to tender in. The excursion (Montecito Stars and History) was awful. We had hoped for more history and less star searching but the bus driver drove us around the Montecito hills to look at famous peoples' gates. A couple would have been fine but we did this for over an hour! After showing us some beautiful restaurants, he dropped us off at a strip mall for 40 minutes. We ended up eating sandwiches from the Von's grocery store. Oh, and the fig tree, we drove past it--didn't even get to get off the bus to take a picture. I was never so happy to return to the ship!

Such a beautiful little city! Make sure to walk through old downtown there are a ton of local shops and restaurants to visit and experience. The wharf also is a great area to visit and dine with the vest views of the waterfront.
