Cruz on over to Channel Islands largest island, Santa Cruz, and experience nature like never before. On this 3 day adventure, you will snorkel in kelp forests, hike to some of nature’s most breathtaking views, and sleep under the stars! Don’t get crabby yet, we’re going to also visit tide pools and the critters that call it their home! So grab your swimsuits and hiking shoes and join us for an unforgettable weekend!

Itinerary

Day 1:  Friday we will be meeting up at the SRFC at 800am to pack away our gear and prepare for the weekend.  We will drive 2 hours to Santa Cruz Island stopping for lunch/snacks and gas whenever necessary.  After setting up camp in Santa Cruz we will go on a little day hike and explore the island. After some exploring we will have dinner and hit the hay!

Day 2:  Saturday we will wake up early for a hearty breakfast and head to a moderate and scenic hike. We will go to the visitor center and go for a “tide pool talk” and have some fun snorkeling. After a long day of hiking, tide pool talks, and snorkeling we will enjoy our dinner under the stars and get some well-deserved rest.

Day 3:  Sunday, after a morning hike and some lunch we will get a last exploring of the island and adventure on some tide pools and find crabby critters. We will grab dinner on the way home and be at CSUSB by 1000pm.
