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 - but just about half the size. We take the Island Packers ferry out of Ventura Harbor in the morning to the Scorpion Landing on Santa Cruz Island at 8am.  Bring water and a lunch for the day. While in 2019 I shot with my 70-200, a 100-400 would work as well without all the weight.  It is an easy safari physically, just some easy walking, plus plenty of benches and places to sit in the shade and relax between the numerous encounters. On the ferry ride out and back to Santa Cruz Island we saw numerous dolphins and gray whales.  We take the 4pm boat back.

Reservations   You call Island Packers (1-805-642-1393) and make a reservation for the trip out and back. We usually get back around 5pm or so. In 2020 the ferry ticket was $58 (for a senior, over 55). We take the earliest ferry ride to the island, 8:30am in February, and 3:30 pm back.  Island Packers requires masks on the boat.
