Explore the pristine waters of the Santa Barbara Channel and the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary. Discover what nature has given us to explore, learn and appreciate.
Join Captain Frank and his crew of naturalists on a fun filled voyage of discovery and adventure offshore as you search for Gray Whales, Sea Lions, Seals, Dolphins, Orcas, Sharks, a variety of bird life and many more unique marine animals in the waters surrounding the Channel Islands.
Whale watching excursions last three to four hours and will leave a profound impression on everyone who joins us. Each trip encourages interaction with everyone aboard as you are given the opportunity to experience wildlife as it was intended.
Following the migration of the California Gray Whale our whale watching trips are great fun for friends, family, groups and other organizations. People of all ages enjoy the wide variety of marine life we encounter and each trip is a unique experience.
All of our offshore adventures are fully narrated and additional wildlife interpretation is provided by CINC, the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration\'s own Channel Islands Naturalist Corp.
