  • Our day trip with Island Packers to Santa Cruz Island Scorpion anchorage was wonderful! The staff was outstanding, providing a smooth and helpful boat ride to and from the island including a short detour for a humpback whale sighting. On the island we took the hike to Potato Harbour with return via Cavern Point. It was hot and we walked slowly and did it in about 3 hours (so put on the sunscreen and fill up with enough water before leaving the campsite near Scorpion anchorage). It's also good to have a map of the trails. The view at Potato Harbour and along the bluffs towards Cavern Point were super impressive! Don't miss it.
  • The captain's announcements were clear, informative and humorous. "Off like a herd of turtles!" I found The inbound trip to be easier on my equilibrium than the outbound since the sea was calmer at that time. However, we crossed paths with a large pod of dolphins on the outbound which was lots of fun to watch. And we passed the sea lions sunning themselves on the bouy. Everyone seemed glad to be there.
