We had a great time ocean kayaking in sea caves of the Channel Islands, California. Watch the video below until the end to see our shocking scare!
Sea Caves of the Channel Islands Are ErodingAs you saw in the video, rocks can come plummeting down from the cliffs at any time because they are eroding rapidly. After the incident I noticed other areas of the cliff which were eroding badly. This makes the base of the cliffs a very dangerous place while you are kayaking in sea caves.
This is the second video in my series while I was on a 2 week vacation in California! What an awesome trip. It started in the Napa Valley, then to Carmel, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles.
Sea Caves of The Channel Islands Are StunningThe Channel Islands are a group of 5 volcanic islands off the coast of southern California south of Santa Barbara. They were formed by tectonic forces that opened gaps in the earth’s crust allowing magma to escape. Each island represents a “hot spot” where magma forced its way through to the surface. Cooling of the magma over time created this string of islands (similar to Hawaii and the Galapagos Islands).
Now the islands are being rapidly eroded by the ocean waves creating numerous sea caves at the water line. They are stunning to explore!
