  • Delightful place for a quiet walk, for a lunch. Of it, leaving a few boat rides, paddleboats, kayaks. Very well taken care of.

  • A small touristy type area. Several “ok” restaurants to choose from. Some pet friendly patios. Several touristy shops. Clean. Safe. Nice place to see the boats and grab a bite to eat. Nothing fancy or...  more »

  • Love it here. Beautiful views of the harbor, beaches just across the street, lots of delicious restaurants to choose from, you can rent paddle boards, electric boats, pedal boats etc., listen to live music when they have events, the harbor light festival during Christmas season is incredible! And if all else fails, just enjoy a nice stroll along the path that overlooks the marina! There is also an arcade and carousel ride near the Mexican restaurant that's perfect for kids. Parking is free and there's tons of it. Shopping is also available here but limited.
  • A great place to shop and have a nice meal by the harbor. Great little shops and really good seafood. Something for everyone in the novelty shops. We come here a few times when the weather is nice to walk around and talk to all the friendly people.
  • Love the shops & atmosphere, great for all ages, inside carousel to delight little ones year round, lots of different boats to enjoy watching whether parked or moving in the water, including excursions you can participate in to watch whales in season or explore the Channel Islands, scuba diving, kayak & paddle board rentals or bring your own, there is a beach to take the family to across the street that has a safe beach for little ones & a regular beach. Yummy restaurants of different cultures including our own, live bands & to top it off an ice cream parlor with lots of flavors to choose from. Its always a treat to visit Ventura Harbor.
  • I go here to meet friends, power walk, hear music, have a drink, see the boats (the TALL SHIPS were there last week!). One of a kind shops, restaurants, and the museum too! Always something fun goin on at the Ventura Harbor. March is MERMAID MONTH!
  • Can't say enough good things about the harbor out here most of the people are super cool. Harbor patrol is really laid back Regular cops don't really come out here that much and when they do they just ride through. It's a nice place it's pretty. the temperature is perfect weather is perfect but that's just Ventura I spend a lot of time out here.
