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 went 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.
