Guided Channel Islands Adventure

Ocean Guides with you all day!

Our friendly and knowledgeable crew are your “rangers” for the day. Feel free to ask us questions, or just enjoy one of our many themed orations that are staggered throughout the day.

We provide all of the gear you need to enjoy when you book an activity. There are hot showers and changing rooms so you can enjoy a little ocean fun, and return home in dry clothing.

Narrated Channel Crossing to Santa Cruz Island

Educational Expeditions are our specialty

You are on an ocean adventure from the moment you leave the dock until you return. Our crew are on the lookout for marine wildlife, stopping and slowing down along the way to share what we find.

With decades of knowledge and experience, our expeditions are known to provide more information that people expect.

The crossing to Santa Cruz Island takes us right over a feeding area for the Blue and Humpback whales. Each summer (June-Aug) whales feed at edges of the Santa Barbara Basin which makes our crossing a whale watching cruise as well.
