Channel Islands Adventure – Live Aboard Program

An Island Adventure Like No Other

Come aboard the Vessel Truth and work the Santa Barbara Channel Islands the way the experts do. From the start, students begin documenting the diversity of ocean life in Southern California. Using scientific tools and apparatus, we explore marine life from up to six habitats over a three – five day period, duplicating the scientific method used by professional oceanographers.






Exploring the islands and its surrounding marine communities is accomplished through exploratory hikes, snorkeling, and an extensive ocean kayaking trips. Students go home having accomplished an extraordinary survey of ecosystems off the Southern California coast, having completed a voyage log, performed data analysis and reported findings regarding the health and diversity of the coastal habitats.

All meals are included. Please contact us for a custom program and tuition rates.
