Epic 4 Night 5 Day Voyage Through the Channel Islands National Park and Marine Sanctuary

CIEx is an Expedition Guide owned company and this tour has been curated by the owners over the past 20 years. 

Cruise through the Northern Channel Islands on an unforgettable adventure where you will kayak each day and hike and snorkel/dive at carefully selected locations in the National Park and Marine Sanctuary..  Land on remote white sand beaches, explore less-visited trails, kayak through the world’s largest sea caves, watch playful pinnipeds, and dive or snorkel in an underwater kelp forest wilderness. 

Come experience one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems in the world!

Early gear check-in on the VISION begins at 10am the day of your departure. Drop off your gear and explore Santa Barbara and the waterfront. 
Drop off your personal belongings and check in with the crew on your boarding day. If you arrive early enough, you can enjoy a day on the town in Santa Barbara or take out a complimentary kayak, paddle board, or surfboard from our sister company Paddle Sports Center for an hour. Enjoy a day at the beach, grab some food at a local restaurant, or take a stroll out onto the historic Stearns Wharf and get an ice cream cone!
