Birding Cruise: Channel Islands and BeyondMap it!
Join Island Packers, for this 12 hour, offshore, deep water, pelagic trip allows you to get out to the offshore waters beyond the reach of most day trips. Our Guest will have a chance to see a number of outstanding pelagic birds and marine mammals. The intention of Island Packers is to go south from Ventura towards San Nicolas Island and the banks, knolls, canyons and other productive features in the area. This will give us a chance to look for sought after species like Red-billed Tropicbird, Least Storm -Petrel, Leach’s Storm-Petrel, Townsend Storm-Petrel, Guadalupe Murrelet and Craveri’s Murrelet. Island Packers will decide what our offshore destination will be after reviewing oceanographic conditions at the time of the trip, which will help determine where the birds and other marine life may be present of concentrated. Boat departs at 7:00 am and returns at 7:00 pm
Cost is $195.00 per passenger
