Channel Islands National Park Attractions: What to do & Places to Visit in Channel Islands National Park
"Although the boat ride out there was a little pricey, the island was wonderful for a day hike. We climbed the first hill we came to and quickly got to the top of the cliffs overlooking the ocean. We hiked the cliff trail before heading back inland. We also saw one of the foxes that is native to the ..."islands. Despite a little sunburn, we had a great day!

"We traveled to Santa Cruz Island with Island Packers, and had a great afternoon of hiking. Actually, we were led on our hike by a staff member of the boat. The trip was so much more than we anticipated, and had a great time with "Paul". He had great knowledge of the history of the island, and sha..."red so much with us. The vistas of the ocean were glorious, and the trails were fairly well maintained. The movie about the Channel Islands at the visitor's center in Ventura Harbor gave is a good orientation of the islands before we sailed. All of the National Park movies are outstanding. You are truly alone with nature out on the islands. Hard to imagine that not to far away on the mainland of California, millions of people live.

"My husband and I went out to Santa Rosa on Island Packers from Ventura. We chose a day trip because of the night time wind (day wind is bad too but doesn't spoil the trip). We had a great boat ride over, spent 5 hours exploring, and cruised along santa Cruz on the way home. While on the island we we..."nt straight to the beach for lunch (20 min walk) and were delighted to see bright white sand and blue water-so beautiful! Then we walked to the campground where we took the 3 mile trail called Cherry Trail which lead back to the pier. Once at the pier we climbed down the stairs (low tide) and played on the beach tide pooling for an hour. We both enjoyed the experience on a remote island! Wear layers for boat and wind.
