We have 2 more months of whale-watching season left in California (this spring), which means time is running out to get into the ocean and see some beautiful sea creatures – specifically the marvelous gray whales. Island Packers Gray Whale Watching is offering whale-watching cruises through the Channel Islands, off of the coast of Santa Barbara, for prime viewing until about mid-April and we think you should definitely take a journey with them if you’re in the area.
3-1/2-Hour Whale-Watching Cruises Through the Channel Islands
Cruise with Island Packers Gray Whale Watching on a 3-1/2-hour journey through the Channel Islands to see stunning gray whales as they make their migration south to the warm waters of Mexico. The Channel Islands are known for their rich and diverse waters, which feature an abundance of gray whales along with several other species of marine mammals. Sea lions, seals, and dolphins (and an occasional Orca) could be spotted on upcoming whale-watching cruises through the Channel Islands.
Cruise With Experienced Captains
Island Packers Gray Whale Watching captains have years of experience taking passengers on sight-seeing tours of the Channel Islands and through Santa Barbara Channel. They’ll navigate to where you have the best chance of viewing the gray whales and they’ll inform you about the types of ocean life you are seeing. Half-day whale watching cruises through the Channel Islands don’t land on the islands, but full-day journeys will put you right on Anacapa Island or Santa Cruz Island, so you can have a different vantage point to admire the magnificent creatures.
