Island Packers Gray Whale Watching departs from both the Channel Island and Ventura Harbors. This 3-3.5 hour cruise takes you to the Southern California waters of the Santa Barbara Channel.

These waters are known for their marine mammal diversity and you may get to see other species of marine mammals along with the migrating Gray Whales. Seals, Sea Lions and several species of Dolphins along with occasional Orca Whale pods may also be seen on your trip.

Our captains have many years of experience sighting whales on the waters of the Santa Barbara Channel and will narrate and inform you about all the varieties or marine mammals seen on your cruise.
