With a smile on its bow and bubbles rising from its smokestack, the Lil' Toot is a Santa Barbara tradition that has delighted over 250,000 since 2003. Running from noon until sunset every half hour, Santa Barbara’s original waterfront taxi shuttles both visitors and locals continuously between the Santa Barbara Harbor and Stearns Wharf.
