Santa Barbara Island Open to Public via Dinghy Landings

Ventura, CA — Santa Barbara Island is open to public access following
interim repairs to the dock damaged from high surf associated with
Hurricane Marie in August 2014.

Passenger landings at the island dock are restricted to dinghy
landings only. Vessels are not allowed to pull up to the island dock
until full repairs from the storm damage are completed in fall 2015.

Santa Barbara Island is the smallest and one of the least visited
islands within Channel Islands National Park. It is located over 50
miles from Ventura and about 24 miles from neighboring Catalina
