  • Channel Islands National Park: Kayak thrills, foxy neighbors

    The four main islands of Channel Islands National Park (www.nps.gov/chis) are as close as 13 miles off Ventura County's coast, yet neither my husband, Michael, nor I had been there. In May, we decided to check out Santa Cruz, the largest island, for a long weekend of camping, hiking, kayaking and wildlife watching. We hiked several miles on trails through fields of wild yellow mustard and along cliff tops, pausing to look down nearly 400 feet to waves, beaches and boulders. Our guided kayak trip took us to cool caves and tunnels, with swells big enough to get my heart racing. The tab: Island Packers charges $79 round trip for you and three 45-pound pieces of gear (1691 Spinnaker Drive, No. 105B, Ventura; [805] 642-1393, islandpackers.com). Camping fees are $15 per site per night (www.nps.gov/chis/planyourvisit/feesandreservations.htm). Aquasports charges $125 a person for a guided three-hour kayak trip along the island's shore ([800] 773-2309, islandkayaking.com; reservations required). Total for two for two nights: $188 plus $250 for kayaking.
