Summer Channel Islands Tours

Santa Barbara Adventure Company and Channel Islands Adventure Company have new tours this summer!

Painted Cave Kayaking: Get ready for a full day at sea. Explore Painted Cave, one of the largest sea

caves in the world! Painted Cave is within a Marine Protected Area and also a part of the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary. Enjoy breakfast & a hot lunch, as well as whale watching on the boat ride where you may spot sea lions, otters, dolphins, marine birds and whales. Snorkel the protected kelp forest after kayaking the massive sea caves. This is an adventure you will remember for a lifetime. Select dates only.

Snorkeling Tours at Scorpion Anchorage: On our guided snorkel tour at Scorpion Anchorage, guests receive expert knowledge while exploring the beautiful kelp forests and along pristine coastlines. Guides will offer discussions of marine ecology and natural history of the islands while guests view sea life up close. This is the only snorkeling tour in all of Channel Islands National Park!

Birding by Kayak Tour: On Sunday, June 3, beginner and expert birders alike will have the opportunity to see endemic species on land and sea on the birding by kayak tour. As you paddle along the rugged shoreline, find Brandt’s and Pelagic Cormorants nesting on the cliff edges and Pigeon Guillemots flying in and out of their nests in rock wall crevices as we paddle through sea caves, California Brown Pelicans flying above and diving into the crystalline waters surrounding the Channel Islands, with the occasional Peregrine Falcon or Osprey appearing. After getting off the water, we’ll explore the island on foot in search of the endemic Island Scrub Jay!
