The visitor's center is your typical visitor's center. However, the view across the street of the beach is amazing. On a clear day, I'm sure you can see the Channel Islands. Even if it's not clear, the beach is amazing.
Can't make it to the Channel Islands? The next best thing is a visit to the Visitor Center on the mainland. Right outside the center is the Island Garden. It is small but is beautifully landscaped with native plants found on the islands. There is an adorable art installation of PVC sculptures of island species of birds, reptiles and mammals.... 更多
The Channel Islands Visitor Center was informative and nicely laid out. The staff and volunteers were very helpful. It was a nice way to learn more about the National Seashore. Oh, and it is free!
We stopped in here while walking around Ventura harbor. It's a super informative visitor center.

Center has a tide pool display with live plants and animals and a nice display of information about the Channel Islands and the local area. Not huge, but big enought to interest the children. They do offer short films to watch and of course, some souvenirs are available. Worth the stop.

The visitors center is very easy to get to. It's small but the kids enjoyed the gift shop/info center for a good 15-20 minutes. That's about how long it took to see the ocean exhibit with a fun little variety of sea life. There were informational videos about the islands. The upstairs observation look out was nice as it pointed... 更多
We stopped here to stamp our passport book. We originally went kayaking out at the islands in August and had since purchased our passport book. I'm glad we went back.
