Channel Island Gray Fox Safari         Wednesday, August 22 and Friday, March 1       $150 for everybody

 

These little, and I mean little, Channel Island Gray Foxes are just fun to photograph. They look like the common gray foxes we typically see in California and the west - just about half the size. We take the Island Packers ferry out of Ventura Harbor in the morning to the Scorpion camping area.  Bring water and a lunch for the day. While I shoot with my 500mm lens, either a 80-200 or a 100-400 would work as well without all the weight.  It is an easy safari physically, plus plenty of benches and places to sit in the shade and relax between the numerous encounters.  We saw/photographed about 25 foxes last March.

Reservations

Once we know the ferry times, you call Island Packers and make a reservation for the trip out and back. We usually get back around 5pm or so. In 2018 the ferry ticket was $59. We meet at Ventura Harbor at 8:30am for the March trip, but meet at 7:30 for the summer trip.
