We will be camping and kayaking on Santa Cruz Island, exploring surrounding sea, caves, and wildlife. The island is the largest in the chain and has potable water. All food and equipment must be packed a half mile from the dock to camp.



Please contact me prior to signing up to let me know your skill level. Due to the skill and strength needed for an ocean paddle, and the teamwork needed to maintain a higher level of safety, priority will be given to those who have done previous island trips with me, or have attended Scupper Supper/Wine and Cheese regularly. Experienced new comers welcome with inclusion in training paddles. Hikers/Non-paddlers also welcome.

NOTE: If you have not attended an island trip with me before, please contact me prior to booking your passage. Everyone will be placed on the wait list until cleared by me. This is for safety reasons. We have had others with lack of experience on previous trips attend and place themselves and others in harm's way.

 

I am not taking deposits for the trip.  Before I add you to the trip roster, you will have to attain your own transport to the island through Island Packers, as well as reserve your own kayak transport. Island Packers can be reached at 805-642-1393. I have booked my passage on the early boat on Friday Nov 2nd. Book soon, as there are limited kayak spaces and kayak spaces may not last. I will book 1 campsite and will ask for a small donation to help cover this. If more than 6 people go, we will needed a second sight (I have site #4 reserved)
