1. Beach Day

A beautiful, expansive beach is located just steps from our two Oxnard resorts, and sometimes a typical beach day consisting of equal parts fun and relaxation is in order. Pack a bag with yummy snacks and beach reads, grab complimentary beach chairs and volleyballs from the Front Desk, and head out to claim your spot in the sand.


2. SUP Yoga

Take your stand up paddle board skills to the next level with SUP yoga. The certified instructors at Sea Dog Yoga will not only help make your next yoga session equal parts challenging and fun, but they will also teach you to experience a deeper appreciation for the beauty of the ocean and how to tap into its calming nature.


3. Jet Skis

Zip around Channel Islands Harbor like never before on a jet ski! Southern California Jet Skis offers Sea Doo rentals that are completely safe and easy to handle. Race your family and friends around the harbor and even out into the open ocean at speeds up to 65 mph for an unforgettable experience out on the water.


4. Gondola Ride

Feel like you’re in Venice with a serene gondola ride through the picturesque Channel Islands Harbor! Gondola Paradiso offers private rides all day during the summer and encourages you to bring along drinks, snacks, blankets, and music—anything you think you’re your harbor tour more enjoyable. We recommend the sunset cruise!


5. Channel Islands

Right off the California mainland yet worlds apart is Channel Islands National Park. Hop the Island Packer ferry to hike, kayak, backpack, and scuba dive,—or simply take in the wonders of the rugged coastline filled with sea caves and teeming with marine life. No matter what level of adventure you’re after, Channel Islands National Park has it all.


After all your water and beach fun, unwind at Channel Island Shores in breezy accommodations with private balconies or patios located just steps from the sand.
