Truth Aquatics Inc. -- Live aboard cruise to the Channel Islands National Park

The next time you consider getting away for a few days of rest and relaxation, think about a live aboard cruise to the Channel Islands National Park and Marine Sanctuary. An alternative to the floating hotel-like atmosphere of cruise ships, this type of cruising offers a more intimate communion with the ocean and its creatures. A popular misconception is these cruises are for avid divers only. Non-divers alike can enjoy the ultimate in peaceful relaxation--no crowds to fight, no lines, no tourist traps, only kayaking, fishing, sunbathing, whale-watching, taking advantage of a boon of photo-ops both above and below the water, or just lounging around taking in breathtaking sunsets.
