Anacapa Island

Anacapa Island is five miles long, roughly one square mile in sum, and the closest island to the Southern California mainland (roughly an hour boat ride from Ventura Harbor). In actuality, Anacapa is comprised of three islets — East, Middle and West Anacapa — each comprised of towering sea cliffs, sea caves, and stunning rock formations like Arch Rock, a 40-foot high natural bridge. East Anacapa is the island you’ll visit (Middle and West Anacapa are closed to visitors). For more information on how to get to the Channel Islands National Park click HERE
