A perfect island day trip for those who want to see wildlife.

My experience, Explo description: 

Anacapa is a little archipelago located on the east part of the channel islands. If you visit it, the boat will drop you on the eastern island of the archipelago. This is the smallest island of the channel islands that you can visit.

East Anacapa main interest is to observe its unique and very rich wild life.

My personal recommendations: 

If you have time, camping is allowed on this island. No water and food on the island.

How getting there: 

You can go to East Anacapa all year round.
The main operator to the island is Island Packers. It is necessary to book your ticket in advance or to go to the desk at 7a.m. to get it and not to miss the boat.
Ticket : $48 for an adult.
The desk is located close to the Channel Islands National Park visitor centre, close to the end of the pier of Ventura Harbour.
Ventura Harbour is 2 miles (SE) from Ventura.

A tip to eat: 

Take you own food. No food on the island. Only a little food bar on the boat.

A tip to sleep: 

Sleep at Ventura the day before to get the early boat for the islands. Motels in the city centre are cheaper than those close to the harbour.

Useful information: 
Visit duration: 

1 day. This island is located in a National park. Please protect the nature.
