Stearns Wharf


Stearns Wharf is located in the harbor in Santa Barbara, California. When completed in 1872, it became the longest deep-water Wharf between San Pedro and San Francisco. Named for its builder, local lumberman John P. Stearns, the wharf served the passenger and freight shipping needs of California’s South Coast for over a century. Stearns Wharf, Your local destination – and where State Street Meets the Sea. Ninety minutes free parking, and always dog-on-a-leash friendly.
