At this time, due to dock construction on Anacapa Island, we are not conducting the Live Dive and Live Hike programs.

If you would like to share a previous recorded program with your class, visit our Channel Islands Live Archived Programs page.

Participate in a FREE live virtual program delivered from Anacapa Island. During a Channel Islands Live program, students learn about the marine and terrestrial ecosystems of the Channel Islands while interacting live with a park ranger on Anacapa Island.

Live Dives are offered from underwater within one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world, the giant kelp forest. Students will discover the importance of kelp forest ecology, marine protected areas, and scientific monitoring techniques.

Live Hikes are offered from scenic island overlooks. Programs explore Chumash island culture, island isolation, and park ranger jobs. Visit the Program Descriptions page for more details.

These programs are available for interactive participation at your location and at the park visitor center in Ventura, California. Get started by visiting the links below.
