KAYAK CHANNEL ISLANDS NATIONAL PARK WITH THE PROS
Vessel Supported "Downwind" Kayak Trips - Snorkel from the boat into the lush kelp forests.
The CIEx Difference
PROFESSIONAL CREW MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Channel Islands Expeditions is a guide-owned and operated company – we have been leading trips at the islands since the mid-90s’.
Our founders were some of the first to bring kayakers into sea caves in the 90s, we were the first to lead snorkeling tours in kelp forests, and the first AND ONLY to operate an all islands boat trip within Channel Islands National Park.
CUSTOM DIVE AND EXPEDITION FLEET
Our fleet of dive and expedition vessels offer guests a safe and comfortable way to experience Channel Islands National Park and Marine Sanctuary
CIEx TRIPS ARE THE PERFECT BLEND OF ADVENTURE AND SIGHTSEEING
Offshore islands present both unique opportunities for thrill seeking AND wildlife viewing. We appreciate both and we hope you will too! Each day at the Channel Islands is different and we take full advantage of the season, weather, and wildlife throughout the year.

Recently went on a 5 night, 6 day liveaboard trip off the Truth. The crew and captains were all very nice and welcoming. The boat has great safety protocols to ensure us divers were safe throughout the entirety of this trip. Chef Tim was fantastic! I have never had better quality food on a boat trip, and he has definitely set the bar high. We had amazing homemade dishes almost every meal, he had vegetarian and vegan options as well. I would 100% recommend this boat to anyone interested in planning a multi-day dive trip to the Channel Islands.

We had a wonderful time kayaking through the sea caves and Anacapa Arch. All the on board staff were excellent. We will definitely come back and do a different tour with them.
