Healthy and Delicious Food for your Channel Islands National Park Adventures

We have partnered with Channel Islands Provisioners to provide organic, local, yummy food for you to pick-up at your ferry the morning of your departure, some exceptions apply (see below).

Exceptions Apply?

In short, due to National Park Service rules, we are not allowed to provide you with food service on the islands. Therefor you will be required to pick-up you box lunch at the ferry in Ventura and transport your box lunch we provide for you in your own cooler/s throughout the day.

  • If you book a ferry ticket through us, you will receive your food when you check-in with your guides.
  • If you booked the ferry on your own, and are on the same ferry as our guides for the day, you’ll also get your food at check-in.
  • If you booked your own ferry, and are not on the same ferry as our guides, or you are camping and participating a different day than your ferry departure, a box lunch will not be available and we will reduce your adventure fee by $10.
  • Caves and Coves for Campers DOES not include food, sorry :(
