Anacapa is the closest island to the mainland, just 12 miles from the Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard. Most of Island Packers departures to East Anacapa Island are from our location in the Channel Islands Harbor.
As the spring bloom fades the island comes alive with the cry of Western Gulls guarding their nests of eggs.
From February through April, Anacapa is a rainbow of color created by the bloom of native wildflowers. Intensity and duration of the bloom differs a bit each year due to varied rainfall and temperature.
Chicks usually hatch at about 5 weeks after being laid and fledge the nest at about 6 to 7 weeks of age.
The Local Islands
The middle islet and most of the western islet remain a wilderness area set aside for nesting seabirds, like the endangered California Brown Pelican.
Driving Directions
Anacapa is comprised of three small islets; East, Middle, and West. Exploration is permitted on the east islet, accessed via the Landing Cove, and a small beach on the west islet called Frenchys Cove.
Trip Preparation
Just as the chicks leave the nest, park rangers begin the "Anacapa Live" video program. Visitors can experience a live virtual tour of the kelp forest when they watch the video program. Images are beamed up to the Landing Cove's video monitors. The program is interactive so visitors can listen to, and talk with the divers via a special underwater communication link. This year there will also be some live guided hikes on Anacapa you can view online. Click the Anacapa Live button below for additional information.
