Fly to San Miguel Island

For an adventure that you will not forget, join Steve Junak for a day trip to San Miguel Island. Participants will fly from Camarillo Airport and land near the historic Lester Ranch on San Miguel, after an aerial tour of the Northern Channel Islands. This is an extraordinary opportunity to view the pristine beaches and windswept expanses of our westernmost Channel Island during the beautiful spring months and learn about the special plants that grow there.

Our small plane will depart at 9:00am depending on weather conditions. The flight will take abou 40 minutes. After landing, we will spend about 4.5 hours exploring island. Departure from the island will depend on arrival.

Participants should be in good physical condition and should bring:

  • Bring lunch
  • snacks
  • water
  • binoculars
  • camera
  • layered clothing
  • sturdy hiking shoes
  • a hat
  • sun protection
