Oxnard California - 2020 - 39

LOCAL'S TIP
CHERRYL CONNALLY,
CO-OWNER OF ISLAND
PACKERS
When I want to disconnect from the mainland,
my favorite thing to do
is kayak through the sea
caves. The best highlight
of most excursions are the
large pods of dolphins,
whales and other marine
life, which can be seen
in the Channel Islands
National Marine Sanctuary
all year round.

Wildlife
Wonders
Channel Islands National
Park and its surrounding
waters are home to a
magnificent diversity of
wildlife. Here are a few of
the animals you may spot:

Make your next event truly special aboard the
Scarlett Belle, a beautifully restored paddlewheel
riverboat that serves as an incomparable venue on
the water for weddings, company events and other
special occasions. Escape on a private yacht courtesy of Marina Sailing, which boasts a fleet of boats
ranging from 18 to 46 feet that you can charter for up
to a full day.
Go on a high-flying adventure with Channel Islands
Parasail. Feel your cares float away as you soar over
a thousand feet in the air. You'll catch a bird's-eye
view of the wildlife, too - pelicans diving for fish, sea
lions sunbathing in the ocean's currents, and dolphins
splashing in the water.

DOLPHINS
Three varieties of dolphins
are known to congregate
here - common dolphins,
Risso's dolphins and
bottlenose dolphins.

GONE FISHIN'
The best deep-sea fishing in California is right here
off the coast of Oxnard. Set out to sea with Channel
Islands Sportfishing, which offers live bait operation,
a fully stocked tackle shop and 11 charter boats for halfday, full-day and multi-day trips. The friendly captains
at Hook's Landing make every trip special, whether
you're a seasoned seafarer or a fishing newbie. O

WHALES
During winter, Pacific gray
whales pass through the
Santa Barbara Channel. In
the summer, humpback,
finback, blue and orca
whales can be found
feeding in the waters.

1: Explore the Pacific Ocean; 2: Fly high above the sea on a
parasailing adventure with Channel Islands Parasailing; 3:
Kayak the coast with Wild Blue Adventures; 4: Stretch it out on
the harbor with Sea Dog Yoga.

GARIBALDI
Known to swim right
up to divers, this bright
orange-red fish is easy to
spot underwater.
