Island Packers Gray Whale Watching departs
from both the Channel Island and Ventura
Harbors. This 3-3.5 hour cruise takes you to
the Southern California waters of the Santa
Barbara Channel. These waters are known
for their marine mammal diversity and you
may get to see other species of marine
mammals along with the migrating Gray
Whales. Seals, Sea Lions and several species
of Dolphins along with occasional Orca Whale
pods may also be seen on your trip.
Our captains have many years of experience
sighting whales on the waters of the Santa
Barbara Channel and will narrate and inform
you about all the varieties or marine mammals
seen on your cruise.
Gray Whale watching is a winter event and we
encourage you to dress in layers of warm
clothing, and wear comfortable flat shoes on
your trip. Bring along your camera and
binoculars for added viewing options.
With our reasonable rates Gray Whale watching is
affordable family fun for all ages.
Half Day Whale Watching trips do not land at
the islands, but an island landing trip to
Anacapa or Santa Cruz will give you an
opportunity to view these magnificent
creatures as well.
