A Message to Our Visitors Regarding Covid-19


NOTE – Ventura Port District closed administrative offices to the public Thursday, March 19, as a precautionary measure to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Staff is still available by phone/email. Please CLICK HERE to read the update from General Manager, Brian Pendleton.

In these times of uncertainty and apprehension, we are here for you. Ventura Harbor, Ventura Harbor Village, harbor beaches, and the Village Promenade provide a quiet oasis free from crowds where you can de-stress, find comfort in the sea, and rejuvenate your spirits.

Now more than ever, the safety and health of guests and our employees remain a top priority. The outdoor surfaces/restrooms continue to be regularly sanitized with increased frequency. We appreciate your support of Ventura Harbor’s locally-owned and operated businesses.
