Recreational Boating & Commercial Fishing Heritage
The Ventura Harbor is a premier recreational harbor in Ventura County offering a variety of amenities for boater enthusiasts and visitors including easy access to the Channel Islands, recreational fishing activities, boatyards, fuel docks, tours, rentals, cruises, vibrant yacht clubs and a new public launch ramp. Ventura Harbor has five marinas with 1,500 boat slips.
The Ventura Harbor is also home to a large amount of commercial fishing activity, which is made possible by its deep-water capabilities and proximity to the international trade centers in Los Angeles, making it a key offloading harbor on the West Coast.
Three of the most prominent fish companies in the US reside in Ventura Harbor selling squid and related seafood types around the globe, with market squid remaining California’s largest and most lucrative commercial fishery. For over 45 years, fisherman have utilized Ventura Harbor as their port to offload a variety of fish including tuna, halibut, lobster, crab, sea cucumber, prawn, rockfish and sea bass.
