Book A Boat To See Southern California’s Painted Cave, The Second-Largest Sea Cave In The U.S That’s In the Middle of Nowhere

Gazing upon the Painted Cave, it is clear that Southern California’s beauty is majestic. This natural cavern, located off the coast of Santa Barbara is the longest in North America, coming in at 1227 feet, the size of four football fields. It plunges 400 meters into the side of Santa Cruz Island, within Channel Islands National Park. Fortunately for us, it is open for public exploration, so why not make a trip out of it?

Extend your time in the water by exploring smaller caves outside the Painted Cave or snorkeling in the surrounding Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary! You can read more about the remarkable Painted Cave right here. Learn more about Island Packers and the company’s kayak trips here.
