Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

For some of the best whale watching opportunities in the world, look no further than the waters off your port city of Santa Barbara. Step aboard a state-of-the-art, high speed catamaran for a full-day, guided whale-watching expedition. Watch from within the luxurious, teak-paneled cabin equipped with large tinted windows perfect for optimal wildlife viewing. Or take your place on a viewing platform on the bow or top deck, basking in the sun and brisk sea breeze. Cruise along the breathtaking Channel Islands, a small archipelago islands teeming with wildlife including cormorants, gulls, pelicans, sea lions, harbor seals and dolphins. Time or weather-permitting, visit the Painted Cave, one of the largest and deepest sea caves in the world. And of course keep a keen eye out for magnificent whales (California Gray, Blue, Humpback and even Orcas) that spout and breach in the glistening waters of this migratory corridor of the Pacific Ocean.

Special Notes:

Wildlife sightings are not guaranteed. Gray whales pass along the coast during their annual migration in winter and spring. Humpback and Blue whales enter the channel to feed from May until Fall.

The Condor Express has a full service galley serving breakfast and lunch, as well as snacks, water, nonalcoholic beverages and a full service bar for purchase.
