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

We really enjoyed the Whale Watching tour. We took the Sunday morning 9:00 am tour. The weather was great for us - calm seas and sunny. We saw lots of whales, dolphins and sea lions. Definitely worth it! Nearly everyone had a coupon for 50%. Coupons are available online.

Taking a shuttle to an Island? Bring a thermos of good coffee because when we tried to find real coffee at 6:50am there was none. Found some weak Folgers after 7am loading up the boat with camping gear, but blecccch. It was a safe place to leave the car locked up for the 2 nights camping on the island, and... More

There were a few shops and restaurants, but the area seemed shabby and rundown, with a lot vacant buildings. Compared to Ventura Harbor, it was disappointing.

The view or all the boats and yachts were amazing. Would have like to rent one of the nice boats for a week just to experience living on a nice boat.
