  • We just saw the films in the park theatre. They were amazing and motivated us to want to the islands up close. There is only one touring company and it was booked up that day, so you need to plan...  more »
  • Five star adventure on a day trip! Great for a staycation. Easy drive to the Ventura Harbor where we boarded the Island Packers boat. First dropped off kayakers and campers on Santa Cruz Island...  more »
  • One of the most beutiful places I've ever been. I'd like to go back and just spend a week roaming around camping and kayaking.
  • It was like little Ireland right now. The ranger said it does not happen too often, but after a good rain season the islands can turn super green and right now they feel like you are in another country try like Scotland or Ireland or Switzerland. It was total cool. And the groups that go out to Santa Rosa are smaller so less people go out there. The guided hike was just three people in my family and the guide. I posted some pics from the hike. We saw a ton of flowers. There was a seasonal creek that typically does not have much water, but right now looks and flows amazingly for a creek. I wanted to camp there but we are on vacation and we were not prepared for camping. But next time, I will totally camp there for a few days.
