“Great date night location.”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Ventura Harbor contains a full range of shops - some nicer quality stores and some more souvenir-type shops. There is also a great dining selection from hole-in-the-wall eateries to nicer restaurants. None are five star, but several are very good and it is always fun to try a new restaurant. After lunch or supper, it's nice to stroll around the harbor area or spend time at the beach and then return for drinks and dessert. There are also opportunities to charter a boat for a short trip or a longer whale-watching excursion. The atmosphere is always fun and casual and there are sometimes additional holiday activities. Lots of fun for all ages.

“Great Shopping and Boat Tours!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

While visiting Ventura, we decided to take a tour of Ventura Harbor. There are unique shops, like hat stores, trinket shops, and gift shops. There are a few restaurants too. We went to the Greek one and it was fantastic. The views of the harbor are really cool. We also took a guided tour of the harbor in a boat. My daughter really enjoyed it. The captain was very personable, gave a lot of history, and it was really cheap! Can't beat that! A week later, we went on a whale watching adventure which was AMAZING. We had to make a reservation and while out to sea, dolphins were riding the waves of our boat. We also saw a blue whale. There is a lot to do at the harbor. I wouldn't say you spend your entire day there but the beach is right across the street. The max I've ever spent there, including dinner is 3 hours. I would recommend Milano's and the Greek restaurant. Two of my faves!
