Comapared to Ventura Harbor this one is smaller. It has the same activities to choose from and closer if you are coming from the south. These is more like a residentail area for people who owns their own boats. Personally I prefer the Ventura Harbor which has a more festive air.

This is the most sought after and affordable harbor on the West Coast!! Located betweend Santa Barbara and Los Angeles, the weather is always sunny and the homes in the Channel Islands Harbor are gorgeous boat dock homes and condos with amazing water views. Call Arlene Beckwith (my boss) for showings or more information on the homes. Pamela!

Several nice restaurants operate in the pier. You can easily have a nice meal for a reasonable price, but it can get expensive if you do not pay attention to what you order. The restaurants try to compete with one another, which leadds to loud music all-around. Lunch can be more affordable and less crazy, if you are not busy... More

This the first whale watching trip where I actually saw whales. I saw a few humpback whales and a blue whale (AWESOME). Of course there were dolphins and sea lions too.

A very enjoyable 3-hour boat tour of the Channel Islands. Great whale watching, dolphins galore. Wonderful photo opportunities of the islands. We did not know of the "June Gloom" marine layer (fog) in the month of June. As a result, our photos could have been brighter, but did not spoil the trip. Sun didn't come out that day until we...

If you want to experience a lovely harbor that leads to the ocean and is surrounded by beautiful homes and boats, this is it. There's rentals for electric boats, Seadoos, Kayaks, Fishing excursions, dinner cruises and there are some fine places to eat Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner. There are some outstanding hotels nearby and the Ventura Harbor about 4 miles... More

Since I kayak in the Channel Islands Harbor frequently, I was going to give this a really bad review. I want this gem all for myself! But truth be told I love this place. I kayak there about once a week, and friends do stand-up paddle boarding. I've gone in an electric boat and cruised the beautiful harbor on many... More

this harbor is set up pretty funny its not targeted for the walking tourist. everything is far apart from each other. it is doable to walk but its not as accessible as Ventura Harbor which is only a few miles up the same road. They do a lot of charter fishing out of this harbor which is a great time... More

Lived in this neighborhood for over two years now and I can't say a single bad thing about it. Summers here are a blast, seems like every weekend there's something going on. Don't forget Wet Wednesdays gourmet Food Trucks. With a year round Farmers Market and additional activities throughout the year makes this a place to visit.

Lots of restaurants and shops all within short walking distance of each other. I recommend Brophy Brothers for lunch or dinner I also recommend the Island Packer Whale Watching tour (take a jacket) Both located at the harbor
