This place remains one of our favorites. The staff is super friendly, helpful, and responsive. We have been here numerous times and they never disappoint. The facilities are so clean and nice - bathrooms are immaculate. We will be back.

This is a great marina. I stayed for about a week while transiting through the area. Very friendly and efficient staff, very clean bathrooms, and seemingly new facilities. I would happily stay there again.

Excellent Marina - clean, friendly and professional staff, great communal areas, etc. Highly recommended.

This is a truly beautiful spot, the weather is great, people are friendly, the harbor area is clean and up-scale, but prices at restaurants and local shops are still decent. The marina looks brand new, everything well maintained, nothing in disrepair. Fairways are nice and wide, my slip was easy to find. The one thing that was a bit annoying, the local sea lion population took over an empty slip and were quite vocal... which of course set my dogs off a couple dozen times -- which did not make me less annoyed! But when the doggies settled down it wasn't too bad; the sea lions left in the morning and haven't come back, yet. But I'm not going to take a star away, probably nothing legal the marina can do... (they're lucky I don't have a harpoon!) :-)

Beautiful newly renovated marina. Helpful staff. Ventura Harbor has two fuel docks (with fair prices and good service), and numerous restaurants and shops. It is protected from the winds of the Santa Barbara Channel. A wonderful trip to the Channel Islands!

Clean and modern docks and fair price. Garrett, the manager and Marisa and Lacy in the office are nothing short of fantastic. Couldn’t ask for better customer service! Easy walk to restaurants & bars. Planning on getting a slip for our boat every winter (we are from Anacortes, WA.) We will definitely stay again. Continuation…due to weather we have been stuck at Safe Harbor and it looks to be that way until mid-April. That has NOT necessarily been a bad thing. We are discovering the area and really like it better than LA. No traffic, less expensive food and entertainment, great restaurants and museums and a slower pace. We will be returning from Alaska in September of this year and use Ventura as our base of exploration for the Channel Islands during next fall and winter.

The marina is in very good condition overall. The facility is "like new" condition. The staff are friendly and helpful. Especially like the laundry room.

Had a great experience for a new boater, Lacey got us setup ahead of time with slip maps and reservation. Bathrooms were always clean and smell good, free wifi, docks are in great condition. Lacey even got us a band aid after my cut her finger on our boat. Thanks to everyone.

Great facilities, clean and sound docks, and friendly staff! Accommodated our last minute request without question. Look forward to returning

Very clean and very safe marina. They issue you a key for the showers and laundry when you check in. The Dokwa app shows they have no amenities here, but this must be a typo or something, this marina has everything you would get at your home marina, but the facilities look brand new and everything is super clean. Super nice staff when you call in or when you visit the office. Will come back for sure.

Great service, easy to book.

by Brianne M. on Dec 19, 2020
This marina is hands down the best marina I have been to. The facilities were clean and easily accessible, the dock was in perfect shape and safe. We rode out nearly gale force winds at this marina as if it was a gentle breeze. The people who work at this marina were super nice and always willing to help. Marissa who works in the office was very kind and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. She really made our stay top notch!

i had a very nice 3 night stay while transiting up the coast from San Pedro to Channel Islands National Park. UsingDockwa was a new experience and relatively painless. The 50 ft. slip I was assigned was an easy fit for my 31 ft. sailboat. The electrical connector was the same as my home slip so no problems there. The access fob was left in the dock box so the whole process was accomplished with no contact as required during these Covid19 days. The bathrooms and showers were spotless and there was plenty of free parking.

Always a pleasurable stay. Particularly quiet this time (as the State (plus) remains on strict social distancing status). The staff, although we have not seen them much, ate very responsive to our requests and are always courteous.
