About this Business
Channel Islands Whale Watching was founded in 1999 specializing in eco-tourism and wildlife adventures. All of the trips take place in the pristine waters surrounding Channel Islands National Park and National Marine Sanctuary. CIWW transports thousands of visitors each year offering marine wildlife interpretation with informative narration of this unique region, often referred to as the Galapagos of the Northern Hemisphere. Captain Jake helms his Ranger 85 to carry visitors on scenic tours around Channel Islands National Park and National Marine Sanctuary, allowing them to glimpse rare species of animals and stretches of untamed Californian landscapes where there are two distinct ecosystems. On some trips, passengers may even occasionally spot up to five different types of whales in their natural environment. The captain also embarks on private charters and bookings for groups or special occasions, such as corporate events or graduation parties for the family harbor seal.
