Waves Crash Through Wharf Restaurant

The waves in Santa Barbara were doing damage and causing a big mess and the water didn’t spare people inside a restaurant Saturday morning.

“Here comes another one!” said Jill Freeland as she caught the wave on cell phone video.

A wave crashed through windows at Moby Dick restaurant on Stearns Wharf sending diners running for the doors.

The waves were also crashing high and hard at the breakwater, forcing Harbor Patrol to close the popular walkway.

“We have a high surf advisory right now with our high tide at 9:15 this morning, at over 6 foot, combined with estimated swell up to 12 feet causes some pretty dangerous conditions,” said Eric Engebretson, with the Santa Barbara Harbor Patrol.
