Whale Watching and Anacapa Island Cruise

Quick Details

Private Whale & Island Cruise 3.5 hours - up to 20 passengers

Exclusive Group Only Tours – Social Distancing Approved!

Wild Blue Adventures is the only whale watching boat in the Channel Islands Harbor to offer exclusive group charters, which is perfect for staying COVID SAFE with your family and friend pods.

Join us aboard the Sunfish, a comfortable 60 foot boat with lots of outdoor deck space for whale viewing and social distancing.

Due to our location in Oxnard which is far East in the Santa Barbara Channel, the crossing to Anacapa Island is the shortest and has the best chance of seeing wildlife.

Join us for a must-do experience in Southern California. The California Grey Whale makes one of the longest migrations of any mammal on the planet, from Alaska to the Sea of Cortez to birth their calves. During their Northern journey with their newborn calves, the Grey whales come close to the shore of Oxnard and Ventura.

Aboard the Sunfish, we will head out to find these gentle giants and watch them teach their young to feed and play. Once we arrive at Anacapa Island we’ll get close enough for you to see the giant Coreopsis bloom and view the Western Gulls protect their nests. We’ll get a close-up view of the Anacapa Arch before we begin our return trip to Oxnard where we’ll see more Grey Whales and play with dolphins on the crossing.

Depart from the Marine Emporium at Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard Shores.
