Rarely in Southern California had we ever found a community with such a sense of personal ownership, where the residents actively take care and feel a true passion and sense of commitment for their town.
The best kept secret in Oxnard’s backyard is the Channel Islands National Park where Island Packers offers unforgettable chartered service to Anacapa Island from the Channel Islands Harbor all year round. We loved the abundant sealife on the Channel Islands and the virtually undeveloped and uninhabited islands offered countless opportunities to study and commune with nature in ways that are simply impossible on the mainland. From migratory birds, whales, and native plants to rich Native American history, tidepools, porpoises, and wonderfully peaceful solitude, our nature hike afforded us dramatic, unparalleled views of both the flora and the fauna of the islands.
