Mid-August Limited Load; Southern Channel Islands
08/15/2013 - 08/19/2013
We charter liveaboards to the Channel Islands over holiday weekends including Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day and Lobster Opener. In mid-August, we do a limited load to the Southern Islands. That means plenty of leg room, bring your toys, the number of passengers is capped at ten fewer than normal.
The trip leaves Santa Barbara Thursday night, at 10 pm. We will head for the Southern Channel Islands, arriving at San Clemente Island in the morning. This time of year is characterized by warm water, large pelagic fish, sunny weather, and fantastic visibility. The boat will spend two days at San Clemente, one at Santa Catalina, and one at a northern island (conditions-permitting). In previous years we’ve seen huge schools of yellowtail, mako and soupfin sharks, black seabass, and loads of dolphins.
The four day Southern Channel Island trips are ideal for dialing in your skills. Opportunities for snorkeling, fishing, and kayaking are plentiful.
As we have for the last 40 years, we will be chartering the Vision, the flagship of the Truth Aquatics fleet. The Sea Landing Dive Center is located within steps from the boat for convenient equipment rental. Don’t worry about losing weight on this trip, as the food is gourmet and it never stops coming!
This trip is one of the best local California trips of the year. Don’t miss out!! See the pictures from last year’s trip in the gallery. See more details “Preparing for your Channel Islands Trip” on our News page.
