If you're new to Santa Barbara take this tour as it will give you a great look at all the things to do so you don't waste time wandering off into the wrong direction. The tour lasted about 75 minutes half round the streets and half in the water. Maddy was an excellent guide both knowledgeable and humorous. Very entertaining

Loved every minute of it! Driving through the city and later on going with the boat into the sea. Capitan Andrei is awesome, super nice. The narrator is so funny, loved every minute.

A cool way to explore the city on land and water. My husband and my two kids decided to go on the landshark tour, the only mistake that we did that we took the tour on our last day in town we should have took the tour the first day. But we're happy we did it we learned so much... More

My husband and I were wandering around town and came upon the land shark bus/boat parked alongside the beach. We had no plans and decided to take the 90 minute tour. We are both so glad we did. We saw a lot of places we may otherwise not have gotten to and the tour was both entertaining and informative. Our... More

This is a must do in SB! Lots of fun for the family and even good for little ones-- maybe aged 4+. It's a really great way to get an overview of the city and to narrow down your top places to visit.

The experience is more than informative, it's fun. You can see all there is to see, on land and at sea, in the Land Shark. For years, we've wanted to get on board. But, it wasn't till we were playing hosts that we pulled the trigger. I'm glad we did. It was a fun afternoon.

My husband and I wanted to do something different from a hop on hop off tour and the harbour cruise at 4.5 hours was too long for us, so we thought this would be perfect -- and it was! 90 minutes long, witb half the time seeing the sights in town and the other half cruising the bay.
