Discover an island like no other off the California coast.
At only 11 miles off the shore of Port Hueneme in Ventura County, Anacapa Island is a quick trip by boat, and because of the island's natural seclusion, it is home to wildlife not found anywhere else. Depending on the season, you may see one of the many species of whales that frequent the area. And common dolphins are spotted on a regular basis.
The island itself provides protected breeding grounds for thousands of seabirds, sea lions and harbor seals. There is as much, if not more, to be seen beneath the ocean's surface at Anacapa Island. Dense kelp forests reach up more than 100 feet and create a unique environment for many species of fish and invertebrates. Kayaking offers an excellent view the island's extraordinary habitat while staying dry. Kayaking tours are offered by Blue Ocean Kayaking and leave from the closest harbor to Anacapa Island, the Channel Islands Harbor.
If you're visiting California, Anacapa Island is not-to-be-missed.
