SAmple Channel Islands two night Charter
Leave beautiful Santa Barbara Harbor and set sail to Santa Cruz Island, the largest of the Channel Islands. Enjoy the two and half hour sail and be sure to keep an eye out for migrating whales and pods of dolphins. As you approach this undeveloped rugged island with spectacular views, we set anchor in Pelican Bay. Enjoy kayaking and stand up paddle boarding around the caves and kelp beds. Head back to the boat in time for appetizers and afternoon beverages while the sun sets. Enjoy a creative meal prepared by Chef Sherri with paired local Central California wines. Sit out on the trampoline and take in all the stars as you sip your cordial. Wake up slowly and have breakfast while watching all the sea life and birds around the anchorage. Santa Cruz Island has a very rich history, from the indigenous Indian inhabitants to the commercial pursuits of old. Pull anchor and set sail to Fry’s Harbor, another beautiful unspoiled anchorage. Fry’s Harbor was used as a location for many films during the early days of film making, which featured it’s rugged landscape. More kayaking and snorkeling around the anchorage. Enjoy another sunset with the ever changing colors against the cliffs of the anchorage while keeping a lookout for passing whales and pods of dolphins. Next morning pull anchor and head to the famous Painted Caves, one the largest ocean caves in North America. Launch the kayaks and paddle into the caves with flashlights and experience a truly unique experience. Load the kayaks back on board and set sail back to Santa Barbara arriving with time to enjoy the active waterfront area.
