Channel Islands Wildlife Cruise


This three-hour non-landing adventure includes a narrated cruise along the rugged north shore of Anacapa Island. It takes about one hour to cross from the shore of Southern California. Highlights are sightings of sea  lions, seals, and island birds.

We will cruise past the historic lighthouse on the eastern end of Anacapa Island and get a close up look at the many caves and arch formations including the Park's landmark Cabrillo Arch Rock.

Highlights include many photo opportunities. From the wildlife encountered during the crossing to Anacapa’s rugged coast with sightings of seals, sea lions and island birds, this trip is always different and exciting.


You will have plenty of time to capture it all on film, so don't forget your camera!

Relaxing, enjoyable, and educational, this cruise is a great way to spend quality time with family and friends.
