    So this summer i really want do so a 4-5 day channel Islands trip.

    Only really been on Catalina and fished off SCI.

    Plan to Sleep on a different island every night. Safe places to Anchor up - go hike - fish - Dive- and cool places or towns (If any)

    Been doing some research online and through maybe i would just ask for some tips and must dos.

    Any other islands sell fuel besides Catalina?

    Will be on a 285 Conquest

    The northern Channel Islands are controled by the park service so you’ll need permits to camp. There’s no kind of anything there except a few dwellings for staff and a Boy Scout camp. Anchoring overnight and leaving your boat is sketchy at best. If you want to camp on the islands check with island packers to get you there and back. Otherwise plan on sleeping on your boat

    On that conquest it's like sleeping at home this evening boats are sweet. Look at the back side of Santa Cruz or Rosa if the weather is nice

    Sleeping on the boat is no issue. Wouldn't mind beach fire or anything if any of that is permitted

    A 5 day Channel islands trip will be epic!
    The northern islands can be much more challenging than Cat./SCI, weather and sea conditions can change really quickly, and can turn a secure anchorage into a complete shithouse.

    I highly recommend getting either of these books, they have all the info you need on cruising the islands, best overnight anchorage options for different conditions, etc for all the islands, and have tons of other useful tips.

    I think that once you have done 1 trip like that, you are definitely going to do more. Plan on 3 your first summer.
    refuel? on a nice day, just run to SB, Ventura, or CIH.

    You can get right up to the beach except in the closures .Make sure you know where they are .It can get pricey if you don't.

    Downloar fish legal on your phone it says everything from what you can keep where to where you can't fish. Plus you have service at the islands. Hit me up if you need some spots
