Day Trips to the Channel Islands National Park from Santa Barbara Harbor
Santa Barbara is the entrance to the Channel Islands National Park across one of the most biologically diverse bodies of water on earth, the Santa Barbara Channel. Painted Cave is the deepest sea cave on the planet, elephant seals, endemic island fox and a rich history that is home to the oldest human remains in North America. If you didn’t know all of this existed just off the coast of Southern California, you’re in for a treat and Channel Islands Expeditions has you covered for a day trip, or a 5 day Explore.
