My husband spent his childhood going to the Channel Islands on a family boat, so he was not that interested in trying to relive it by going out again on a tourist boat. However, when I found out about Channel Islands Aviation and their day trips, he was all for it.
After our skilled pilot (my husband's a pilot too and was impressed with Jonathan's skill) flew us on a short, but lovely appx. 25 minute flight we landed on Santa Rosa Island. We expected a long hike to try and see Torrey Pines, but after lunch Jonathan shuttled (via an Excursion) to the trailhead, which made the rest of the steep hike very doable. Jonathan even hiked with us and shared a bit of natural and cultural history of the island.
The weather was amazing and we are planning on returning soon for a three day camping trip.
