Nature Cruise (3pm) @ Cachuma Lake Recreation Area

Let our Park Naturalists guide you on a 2-hour Lake Cruise aboard the Osprey. 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. The tour is appropriate for all people ages 5 and up. Our boat can comfortably accommodate visitors who use walking aids, and we have a walk-on ramp (please let us know in advance so we may assist you).
