Are you looking for an adventure that will leave you amazed and exhilarated? Look no further! Join us on a remarkable 5-day expedition to San Miguel Island, the northernmost channel island. Get ready to experience nature in all its glory, from kayaking through unpredictable weather patterns to hiking along breathtaking trails, and even diving and snorkeling in crystal clear waters.

Morning Adventure: Kayaking with a Twist

As the weather on San Miguel Island can be quite unpredictable, kayaking here is not for the faint-hearted. However, when the weather is on our side, the experience is truly one-of-a-kind. Imagine gliding through the pristine waters, surrounded by stunning wildlife. San Miguel Island is home to large seal and sea lion colonies, numerous seabird species, and frequent sightings of dolphins and whales. It's a kayaker's paradise!

Afternoon Thrill: Hiking to Spectacular Sights

San Miguel Island offers a variety of trails that will take your breath away. While some areas are closed to preserve the wildlife and natural features, there are still plenty of hikes to explore. Join our qualified naturalists or park rangers on a vigorous 16-mile hike to Point Bennett, where you'll witness an awe-inspiring event: more than 30,000 seals and sea lions basking in the sun (depending on the season). Landing on the island can be quite exciting, as the surf adds a thrilling element to the experience.

San Miguel Island is known for its unique weather patterns. The strong northwest winds, often exceeding 25 mph and occasionally reaching 50 mph, create a surreal atmosphere. On warmer days, the fog burns off only to be replaced by fog from the open ocean, keeping temperatures around 55°F. It's a fascinating environment like no other.

Unforgettable Experience: Diving and Snorkeling

If you're a diving enthusiast, San Miguel Island is a hidden gem. The underwater world is nothing short of spectacular. The offshore pinnacles present a mesmerizing topography that will make you feel small. Dive to depths ranging from 20 to 200 feet and witness the incredible diversity of seals and sea lions. With protected coves, banks, offshore rocks, and pinnacles, this destination is a dream come true for SCUBA divers. The limited human visitation adds to its allure, ensuring an unforgettable experience.

Your Ultimate National Park Expedition

San Miguel Island is not just a remote wilderness. It's a place where preservation meets scientific research and environmental stewardship. The National Park Service maintains two airstrips, a ranger station, and a research station, supporting ongoing studies on pinnipeds and the captive breeding program for the Island fox. Our dedicated rangers and volunteer interpretive rangers strive to provide a memorable experience while enforcing park laws and educating visitors.

Unfortunately, public visitors are not allowed to fly onto the island. This restriction ensures the conservation of this pristine natural wonder and minimizes human impact. It's a small sacrifice we make to preserve this unique ecosystem for generations to come.

Join us on this extraordinary 5-day expedition and get ready to create memories that will last a lifetime. Are you ready for the ultimate national park adventure?
