My husband and I went camping with a couple other people from my hiking group last year. I had the best time ever! For those who get sea sick like me, take bonamine or a pill of choice way ahead of time. I took it too late. The trip was worth the pain tho. Saw dolpins on our way there. And way more - at least 100 when we went to Santa Rosa late last month. The Santa Rosa trip first stops at Santa Cruz.
The coastal views and peace and quiet during the hike were priceless! Research the smugglers cove hike on Santa Cruz and Cherry Canyon on Santa Rosa. We are hooked on the Channel Islands and are going to Anacapa next. Book with Island Packers. They are a good bunch. They have a professional and caring crew. I know first hand coz I got sea sick both trips! The trick I've learned from passengers and the crew is good old ginger ale and to try to stare at the horizon. These helped me some. I heard that you can fly to Santa Rosa. Something worth looking into. Happy hikes!
