Channel Islands National Park encompasses five remarkable islands and their ocean environment, preserving and protecting a wealth of natural and cultural resources. Isolation over thousands of years has created unique animals, plants, and archeological resources found nowhere else on Earth and helped preserve a place where visitors can experience coastal southern California as it once was.

The Channel Islands National Park Visitor Center features daily guided tours to the Channel Islands, along with a museum, bookstore, marine life displays and exhibits about each island. 
Open from 8:30 am to 5 p.m. daily, 901 Spinnaker Drive, Ventura. Programs offered at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekends and holidays
While the mainland visitor centers in Ventura and Santa Barbara are readily accessible by car or public transportation, the islands are only accessible by park concessionaire boats and planes or private boat. Advanced planning is highly recommended.
