Wanna continue the romance for Valentine’s Day Weekend?
Come to Channel Islands, Oxnard for whale watching and cruise.
The trip was ranked Best Los Angeles Weekend Activity of 2012.
Seafarers board the Ranger 85 to spot aquatic life gliding around the waters of Channel Islands National Park and National Marine Sanctuary. Throughout the three-hour tours, passengers lean against the railing of the 85-foot ocean liner’s wraparound deck while scanning the currents for fauna such as whales, sea lions, sharks, and dolphins. Seabirds flutter in and out of view, and recorded narration educates voyagers on the differences between gray, humpback, pilot, and orca whales, including which pet names they’re more likely to respond to. Excursions include a shoreline tour of one of the Channel Islands, just a few miles from the coast, with additional narration that explores the islands’ history.
History about Channel Islands Whale Watching:
Captain Frank has navigated Californian waters for more than 30 years, earning his 100-Ton Captain’s license in 1980 and consequently became the youngest person to do so at the time. After working for the next 19 years chartering boats and educating students aboard the Channel Islands Marine Floating Lab, he purchased the 85-footRanger 85, the very ship he worked on as a teenager. Along with a sister vessel, theCoral Sea, Captain Frank helms his Ranger 85 to carry visitors on scenic whale-watching tours around Channel Islands National Park and National Marine Sanctuary, allowing them to glimpse rare species of animals and sometimes up to five differenttypes of whales. He also embarks on private charters and bookings for groups or special occasions, such as corporate events or graduation parties for the family harbor seal.
