Let our Park Naturalists guide you on a 2-hour Lake Cruise aboard the Osprey, a 30-passenger pontoon boat for easy wildlife viewing.

Location: Cachuma Lake Recreation Area

Time: 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

2225 Highway 154, Santa Barbara, CA Solvang, CA

Cruises are Friday and Saturday 10 AM to noon and 2 - 4 PM in the afternoon.  Sunday's cruise is 10 AM to noon.

A 30-passenger pontoon boat for easy wildlife viewing and personal comfort, the Osprey explores the Lake as Naturalists follow nature's serendipity to reveal the area's natural and cultural riches. In all seasons, Cachuma Lake is a thriving habitat for a great variety of wildlife, birds, fish, trees, and plants. Our winter season often brings out resident and migratory Bald Eagles and waterfowl from November through February. In spring and summer, wildflowers spangle the hills, resident birds can be seen displaying and building nests, and fawns appear with does.
