Channel Island Shores Is Open


Play at the Resort

This post is current as of September 30, 2020. We love to create experiences worth sharing! Activities around the resort have always been a heartfelt tradition that we enjoyed sharing with you and your family. Your safety has and always will be our top concern. We have temporarily paused the activities below to promote social distancing and following health guidelines. Please inquire with the front desk about things to do in the local area that involve natural open spaces or games to do in your room.


We have fun at Channel Island Shores, and you will too! Here’s a snapshot of our weekly activities. Ask the concierge or front desk for updated dates and times. You may need to sign-up for some activities in advance.

With all that the area has to offer, we find that guests sometimes feel like there isn’t enough time. We’re here to help! Call us at (805) 985-0621 and our concierge will prepare a personalized activity list based on your interests so you can maximize your Time Away… Time Together.
