My husband, twenty-five year old daughter, and myself are planning to visit the LA area in late December. May I have suggestions as to the best way to see the Channel Islands? We have read of a North Shore Cruise around Santa Cruz but prefer to get suggestions from our fellow, Trip Advisors.
Also, where would we start any trip(s) to see the island(s)?
Will we be lucky enough to see whales at this time of the year?
