Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Discover beautiful Santa Barbara – the American Riviera®, through the lens of your camera. But don't leave your taste buds out of the picture. This intriguing half-day tour lets you eat and shoot while exploring Santa Barbara's Funk Zone. This storied area located between the Pacific Ocean and Highway 101 in downtown Santa Barbara has been developing a contemporary Santa Barbara sub-culture of artisan shops, hip eateries, nook wine tasting rooms and award-winning microbreweries over the past years.

Don't be deterred by the name; the area doesn't have a funk so much as it does a vibe. Winemakers, surfboard shapers and up-and-coming chefs have taken up shop in aged warehouses and forgotten scuba shops, transforming the zone into an understated array of hidden hot spots along California's Central Coast. Most notably, the Funk Zone is home to a wide array of enticing eateries and a majority of Santa Barbara's Urban Wine Trail - a series of 17 tasting rooms representing Santa Barbara County wineries and vineyards that make getting to know the best local wines fun and easy. And this tour takes advantage of it all. Just lace up your walking shoes and join us for an energizing jaunt with a professional photographer/guide.

Meet your tour guide at Sea Landing and enjoy the stroll to our jumping-off point at the famous dolphin fountain. You'll be greeted by your friendly guide who will enthusiastically share personal insights into the legendary Santa Barbara lifestyle. If you are curious about the city's background and history, just ask. Do you want to know more about the local marine life or the flora and fauna in the surrounding mountains? Or is your interest piqued by the viniculture of the nearby Santa Ynez Valley? The opportunity to share time with a local makes every experience all the more enjoyable.

Imagine filling your memory card with indelible images of mountains, sea and sky; not to mention one winery after another, each with its own unique blend of contemporary warmth and welcoming people. Want tips on how to shoot more interesting pictures? Your guide will take you to some of the most scenic spots and answer any questions you may have about taking better pictures during mini photo lessons suited to the smartphone novice and pro camera user alike.

"Working up an appetite? You'll visit up to five different restaurants for a moveable feast plus three watering holes to quench your thirst, for a total of nine tastings. Savor fresh seafood, gourmet flatbread pizzas, handmade tacos and eclectic bistro style creations that are sure to tickle your tummy. And you'll visit one venue after another to taste your way through a variety of white and red wines, enjoy craft beers you won't find anywhere else and sip spirits from a local distillery. Walking back to the tour shop, say farewell to your guide and either set out on your own for a few relaxing hours of independent exploring and shopping or catch the shuttle for the convenient transfer back to the ship. You'll return with new knowledge, a host of stunning pictures, and a full belly too!"
