It’s just you and your party of up to six and your captain on a French luxury yacht circumnavigating Anacapa Island on an all-day sail charter.
Do it all, or just watch us!
You can drive the yacht and try your hand at navigation … or you can just sit back and relax while we cruise the Santa Barbara Channel.
Disconnect for the day! There are no cell towers here, so you’ll have the perfect excuse to not answer calls and emails.
There are only a few ways to get here and this is the only one that is ecologically friendly. We’ll use a quart of diesel or so and leave only bubbles in the environment.
We’ll leave Channel Islands harbor about 10 a.m, but we’re able to flex with your schedule and will depart when it suits you.
It takes 2-3 hours to sail to Anacapa Island then we’ll drop the hook and have a leisurely lunch, as we continue to observe the wildlife. Weather permitting, we’ll do a bit of kayaking.
Anacapa is the smallest of the Channel Islands, roughly five miles long and a bit less than half a mile wide at most points and less than one mile square.
The Chumash named it Ennepah, which means ephemeral or changing, probably a reference to changes in shape and color when viewed from the mainland.
There’s no water here other than condensate from the fog, yet there were some interesting characters who lived on the island before it was part of the National Park. More about that when we sail.
We’ll explore the north and south coasts and see the historic lighthouse, countless sea lions, dolphins, pelicans, oyster catchers, maybe a bald eagle and thousands and thousands of migrating sea birds in spring and fall.
