The Condor Express
Join fellow educators, scientists and ocean-lovers on this unique 2-hour field trip out of Santa Barbara Channel aboard the fast catamaran Condor Express. This is an informational field excursion into the Santa Barbara Channel to learn about the natural seepage of oil, gas and tar/asphalt that has characterized the southern California Bight for tens of thousands of years. You will see asphalt seeps along the beach, natural gas “bubble holes” offshore, and visit a working offshore oil platform. The Condor Express has successfully operated similar educational field trips for Veneco Corporation for several years.
