Never seen the breathtaking Channel Islands before?  Or been there and can’t wait to go back again?  Either way, we’ll give you the benefit of our knowledge and expertise and show you around the fabulous islands of Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, Anacapa, Santa Barbara, and Santa Catalina Islands.

We provide pre-trip course materials and a boat gear review to ensure that you and your boat have what you need to cruise the Channel Islands.  You bring your own boat and we cruise the islands as a fleet.  Only $250 per boat.
