Ports of Call, Santa Barbara

Aloha Everyone,

Santa Barbara is a coastal city, but for one to try to see some of the local attractions, it is not easily accessible on foot. 

After taking a tender, we ran into Romy from Vancouver, BC. She invited us to go with her to the main shopping street, but we decided to walk to the pier instead. 

Most interesting thing about our stop in Santa Barbara was our interview by a local tourism employee.  His main question was, “Did our ship’s scheduled stop in Santa Barbara had any bearing on our decision to take this cruise?”  Our answer was answer, “Absolutely none.”

We gave our suggestions such as providing free shuttle services to the some of the main attractions including downtown courthouse, University of Santa Barbara and Mission Santa Barbara. 

The day was beautiful and here’s what we saw.

Aloha -- Cathi
