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’.

ISLAND PIONEERS

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.

CIEx is a guide owned and operated company.

SEE MORE, DO MORE, PLAN LESS…

If you are planning your trip to the Channel Islands National Park and overwhelmed with logistics and planning… ferries, campsites, tours, etc. you’ve come to the right place. All CIEx trips start and stop from the same land based location and we’ll take care of everything else you need!
