Once a rare sight in the waters of the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, Humback whales and the endangered Blue whale can be seen as they feed on swarms of krill.
Summer Fun in the Marine Sanctuary
Plus a visit to see Painted Cave on the coastline of Santa Cruz Island
(weather & sea conditions permitting)

The journey often takes us past the west end of Santa Cruz Island, where one of the world's largest sea caves, Painted Cave, is located. Weather and sea conditions permitting, you may have a chance to see one of the geological wonders of the Channel Islands National Park up-close.
The concentration of feeding Blue and Humpback whales tends to be near the western end of the northern Channel Islands making these whale watching trips an all day adventure. Reaching the feeding grounds may take from 2-3 hour. This trip is 7-8 hours in length with no island landing.
