Santa Barbara Island is the only southern Channel Island in the park. This island is the smallest of the Channel Islands, yet it is big on wildlife and adventure. Located about 55 miles from Ventura County, travel time is 2.5 to 3 hours depending on which harbor of departure. The longer channel crossing increases the opportunity to see a variety of wild life such as whales, dolphins, and seabirds.

Visitors step from the boat onto a ladder and climb to a small dock. From the dock there is a ½ mile trail that leads to the top of the island.

Like the other Channel Islands, the spring wildflower bloom is colorful, yet many of the endemic plants actually bloom in the summer and fall, on this island
There is no potable water and no shade trees on this island, so bring ample water, a hat or visor, and sunscreen.

This small island is rich in native flora, with a number of island endemics.
The isolation of this island makes it an ideal place for many species of nesting seabirds and also for breeding seals and sea lions.
