Channel Island Harbor is located
5.8 miles southeast of Ventura Harbor and 1 mile northwest of Port Hueneme.
There is a privately maintained lighted buoy about 1.1 nm west of the striped
209 foot stack that is .6 nm north of Mandalay Beach with a flashing red
light atop the stack. About .3 nm east of the the lighted buoy are
3 or 4 mooring buoys for the submarine pipeline running from shore.
There may be shoaling to the
southeast of the south jetty at any time. Exercise care when approaching the
harbor from the South, especially at night. The entrance is between two
jetties, protected by an offshore breakwater, both lighted, turns to the north and continues to a "Y" with both resulting
channels ending at bridges that separate the main harbor from the "resident"
docks. In December 1994, the controlling depth was 18 feet (19 feet at
midchannel) in the entrance channel. A 147*51' - 327*51' measured
nautical mile is off the breakwater and beach just N of the harbor
entrance. The S range is marked by the breakwater S light
and the S jetty light. The N range is marked by less visible
poles on the beach.
There is a fog horn on the seaward end of the south jetty.
