The Caroline Foote was an American merchant ship which was hired in 1855 by Yevfimy Vasilyevich Putyatin to carry a portion of his crew home to Russia while he remained temporarily in Japan.

Captained by A.J. Worth, the Caroline Foote entered Shimoda harbor on 1855/1/27. Putyatin arrived a few days later, on 2/2, from Hedamura (Izu province) where a new ship was being constructed for his crew following the loss of the Diana. Putyatin then negotiated for the use of the Caroline Foote.
