What You'll Get

Numerous ecological regulations impact our fish, yet few volunteers are interested in doing the hard work of registering them to vote. Canvass your local waterways with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a two-hour history and wildlife kayak tour of Channel Islands Harbor from Channel Islands Kayak Center in Oxnard (a $79.95 value). Kayakers younger than 12 years old must ride with an adult.

Channel Islands Kayak Center offers tranquil, yet exciting, boat rides and the naturally occurring dual thrills of local history and stunning marine wildlife. The beginner-friendly history and wildlife tour offers a floating glimpse at such diverse sights as a mammoth fossil, a pirate ship, and pirate skulls. Before the official tour begins, participants will receive a thorough ocean kayaking lesson from one of the center’s resident experts, who will impart tips on safely operating the watercraft and share the secret Latin phrase that causes boat-clinging barnacles to spontaneously combust. Once the guided exploration begins, kayakers will hear a detailed history of the harbor while often times maritime creatures such as dolphins, sea lions, and starfish may take a break from their underwater bunco tournaments to sheepishly show off for you and your tour-mates. Tours are available during the week from noon–5 p.m., and from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Call to reserve a time slot.

Channel Islands Kayak Center is home to a dedicated staff that values its customers’ safety and comfort, and all tour takers are provided with a paddle, backrest, and life vest. A buoyant escape for landlocked couples seeking the romantic re-ignition afforded by human-powered exploration, or semi-aquatic families looking to locate their mysteriously amphibious roots, the history and wildlife tour offers interspecies appreciation and a glimpse into the past.


Reviews are limited, but four Yelpers give Channel Islands Kayak Center a near-perfect 4.5-star average:

  • Overall, I recommend this tour to anyone! It was a great three hours of exercise and educational adventure. Between the friendly staff and the natural wonders around the harbor, this experience was worth the time and money. – Annabel T.
  • I would definitely recommend this place. – Ryan J.
