Spend an evening in Ventura, California before boarding our catamaran for an early morning boat ride to Santa Cruz Island in the Channel Islands National Park for a day hiking/exploring the island and coastal shoreline.  On return to the mainland, travel to Solvang to experience the pleasures of sampling Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and other grape varieties in world-class wine tasting rooms. Stroll the streets of the Danish themed village of Solvang with its European charm, being drawn to the more than 150 unique shops and art galleries, restaurants, tasting rooms and bakeries. Before heading back to Ventura, visit the world famous Santa Barbara Harbor to experience casual dining at its finest.  Another full day, it’s on to the village of Ojai in the Ojai Valley. Back in the 1930’s the village and natural beauty of the surrounding area was made famous through photographs to represent Shangri-La in the movie, The Lost Horizons. The evening before leaving California, drop on by old town Ventura for a Bon Voyage dinner.
Space limited to 6 participants.
