Join us in exploring the Channel Islands National Park and the Santa Barbara Channel!
Just 10 miles from the coast, Anacapa Island can be reached in less than 30 minutes. The Channel is one of the most productive locations for marine life in California, teeming with dolphins, whales, and sea lions.
Whales by the dozens, Dolphins by the thousands
The Santa Barbara Channel's unique bathymetery along with consistent upwelling attracts unparalleled diversity and numbers of marine mammals.
A National Park awaits your discovery
The Channel Islands are the crown jewel of the Southern California coast. Explore their breathtaking scenery on an expedition with us.

Experience exotic species, remote locations
Channel Islands Harbor is a gateway to places rarely visited by the typical tourist; it's the closest harbor to San Nicholas and Santa Barbara Island. Waters surrounding the Channel Islands bring the chance of encountering Orcas, Sperm Whales, Dall's Porpoise, and Beaked Whales
About our vessel
We utilize a SafeBoat 25 departing from Channel Islands Harbor. Originally operated by the United States Coast Guard for 15 years, the JAEGER was build in Bremerton, WA in 2004. She was acquired by us in 2019, and totally customized with brand new Mercury outboards, a helm station on the roof, and additional outside seating.
The SafeBoat 25 is an absolute tank, weighing in at 7,800 pounds full fuel. A weather tight cabin, self-bailing and sealed deck, along with a solid foam collar means this boat can handle some serious seas.
