CHANNEL ISLANDS NATIONAL PARK, CALIFORNIA

Just offshore from Southern California lie the Channel Islands, five of which are protected as a national park. 175 miles of untrammeled shores make pristine breeding grounds for harbor seals and sea lions. Among the islands’ 2,000+ plant and animal species, 145 of those are found nowhere else in the world. The Channel Islands also have one of the best-preserved archaeological records on the Pacific coast, documenting 10,000 years of continuous human habitation. There is a 1.5 mile trail around the island’s ridge line, or you can take a boat tour and experience whale migration patterns! Visit during summer to see blue and humpback whales, and gray whales in late winter and early spring.
