My first visit to Channel Island Harbour and I was amazed at beauty of the area. I spent three days here, 70 miles approximately north of LA , it's a completely different world. It a relaxing place with nice hotels and a great choice of restaurants for dining. Plenty to do and see. Shopping and other resorts nearby.

Peninsula Yacht Marina seems the best deal in town. Very kewel people in the office and good availability (Oct2016) of slips. Bring a 30A(fem) to 3-prong(male) adapter for their unorthodox electrical outlets, which are metered for long term leases. Food, West Marine, and provisioning are all within walking distance for the Cruiser. Spearfisher folks and SUP people should visit AHOY!... More

There is always something going on so before you visit look up the calendar, especially in the summer.

We'd been visiting up here for a few years and were astonished by how quiet and beautiful it is at this harbor. The restaurants were friendly, the beaches empty and the folks walking around were smiling and relaxed. Also love our farmers market on Sunday!!

Our boat went through the harbor out to our trip to Anacapa Island. We walked around the harbor prior after our boat ride and enjoyed all of the food and shops and thankful for public restrooms.

We mostly visit the harbor to walk. There are many beautiful walks available along the shoreline. I'd recommend Hopper Boat rentals to rent an electric boat or paddle boat. It's always a relaxing and fun thing to do. It takes about an hour and a half to go all the way to Seabridge and back, more if you explore the... More

They charge you $8 to park. It's more a donation for nothing than something for your money. There is plenty of parking so it's not like your paying for something in short supply. I never saw any security in the 2 hours I waited for a boat.
