Kayak and Snorkel in the Channel Islands

You are paddling on deep turquoise amid mighty rocks, in hidden lagoons of transparent emerald, into secret caves of dark blue. The guide helps you find marine life, although dolphins and whales are usually easy to find.

Next you are on the ferry, headed for the lone and wild Channel Islands. Take your snorkel, and dive into this underwater wonderland.

The underwater plants sway to a secret rhythm. And you know the shy creatures of the sea are hiding very close. Let them get used to your presence and show themselves. You will see orange garibaldis, sea fans, rays, anemones, and countless other animals and plants. The kelp forests of the Channel Islands are among the richest marine ecosystems in the world.
