Historic Stearns Wharf is California's oldest working wharf dating back to 1872. The famous Dolphin Fountain, sculpted by local artist Bud Bottoms, marks the start of the wharf and welcomes visitors from around the globe. Steadfast wooden timbers support the wharf above the blue Pacific Ocean. Check out our world-class restaurants including The Harbor Restaurant, Moby Dick Restaurant, Santa Barbara Shellfish & Company and more. Visit the many gift and apparel shops for keepsake treasures.
