Tours are available to Anacapa Island. It takes about an hour to get to the island, and once there, visitors depart the boat by stepping onto a ladder at the Landing Cove, climbing several rungs to a wooden dock. From the dock, there is a winding set of over 157 steps that leads to the island plateau about 200 feet above sea level for stunning coastal views. See website for additional information and reserve tickets online. Tours leave from both Oxnard (3550 Harbor Blvd, Oxnard, CA 93035) and Ventura (1691 Spinnaker Dr #105B, Ventura, CA 93001). Make sure you know which location your tour leaves from. Call 805-642-1393 or email
