A few months back, I ventured out to Santa Barbara Island for a few days of island kayaking, snorkeling and camping with friends. Santa Barbara Island is the smallest of the eight California Channel Islands. The island is home to a large sea lion rookery and several seabird nesting colonies. The boat ride to Santa Barbara Island from Ventura Harbor is about 2.5-3 hours long. Here are some photos from our afternoon snorkeling trip. We had an incredible time. I am looking forward to going back to explore more areas of the Channel Islands National Park soon.
Everyone should visit this special place and see it’s beauty first hand. When are you planning your trip?
