A Message to Our Visitors Regarding Covid-19


In these times of uncertainty and apprehension, we are here for you. Ventura Harbor, the harbor’s facilities, and harbor beaches provide a quiet oasis free from crowds where you can de-stress, find comfort in the sea, and rejuvenate your spirits. We ask that all residents and visitors in the Ventura Harbor please comply with all orders including Social Distancing Orders.

Now more than ever, the safety and health of guests and our employees remain a top priority. The outdoor surfaces/restrooms continue to be regularly sanitized with increased frequency. We insist that the Ventura Harbor facilities and all shared and common areas be used responsibly.
We appreciate your support of Ventura Harbor’s locally-owned and operated businesses.

General Visitor Information: (Updated 3/25/20)

  • Ventura Harbor, beaches, select Harbor restaurants, and the Ventura Harbor Village promenade along the water remain open.
  • Due to county and state orders, dining inside of restaurants has been suspended. For take out, please consider patronizing Ventura Harbor restaurants and fish markets that provide pick-up and delivery options – click here to learn more on dining options.
  • Purchasing a gift card, shopping online, and booking travel in advance are other ways in which the local community can support small business for shopping, dining, entertainment, and overnight stays in the Ventura Harbor in the near future. Click here to learn how you can lend your support to small harbor businesses.
  • We ask that visitors confirm in advance all reservations, travel plans, and hours of operations directly with Harbor businesses, services, and attractions (as these may change daily).

Again, we encourage all harbor residents and visitors to follow healthy practices and social distancing, in accordance with CDC guidelines (see below) and continue practice of safe hygiene. If you are sick, please save your visit to the Ventura Harbor until you are well.

We are closely monitoring the guidance of the County of Ventura Emergency Information and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding the spread of the virus.  Another great resource for travel within California is the Visit California website.

The sea is a healing place, and we will get through this together.  

NOTE – Ventura Port District closed administrative offices to the public Thursday, March 19, as a precautionary measure to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Staff is still available by phone/email. Please CLICK HERE to read the update from General Manager, Brian Pendleton.
