Book a private Santa Barbara harbor tour with Santa Barbara Water Taxi

Make your next special event, birthday party, or meeting unique and memorable! Whether you’re celebrating a birthday or an anniversary, Santa Barbara Water Taxi is an intimate and unique setting for any special event.



Birthday Parties
Lil’ Toot is a hands-down favorite for birthday parties – for young, old, and every year in between! Kids get decked out with Lil’ Toot sailor hats in the perfect setting for their imaginations. Grown-ups get their own private table for 10 to 12 in a party. Better than a busy restaurant, our boat is just the right size to carry on conversations and mingle with friends.

Chez Toot Intimate Dinners
If you’re in the mood for an intimate dinner for two or a small group, you can enjoy a sit-down dinner while cruising the golden waters of the harbor at sunset. A gourmet catered affair awaits you, complete with chilled wine and gorgeous place settings

Proposals, Weddings, Anniversaries
We’re honored to be chosen as a special location for marriage proposals! Let us host a private party for your engagement, wedding ceremony or reception – then make it a tradition to come back for a sunset cruise to toast your anniversary for years to come. Capt. Fred is ordained to perform your wedding ceremony and couples will receive a certificate of marriage with latitude and longitude on the sea. We’ll even take care of filing the registered letter confirming your vows.
