-- The Ventura County Harbor Department announced today the launch of its revamped website, www.channelislandsharbor.org.

"We are excited about the website launch because it showcases the beauty of the Harbor and the numerous amenities it provides," said Suzy Watkins, Acting Harbor Department Director. "This revamped site will allow our visitors to more easily find the information they need to navigate the Harbor."
The website has a clean uncluttered design, improved functionality and enhanced rich content focused on the Harbor Department's mission to offer recreation, tourism and business opportunities to a diverse public. The website provides updated information on Harbor news, an enhanced business directory, and boating information.
The Channel Islands Harbor's new website will be updated on a regular basis. Visitors are encouraged to explore the website and sign up for direct emails from the Ventura County Harbor Department regarding upcoming events.
As the first recreational harbor in Ventura County, Channel Islands Harbor has become one of the largest in California. It now includes over 300 acres of land and water, but the initial development included only a small portion of the current harbor area. Additional construction took place over the years, including the west channel of the harbor, along Harbor Boulevard and Peninsula Road. Development of the harbor has been largely accomplished through leases with private developers, who have constructed eight marinas (not including the three constructed by the County) comprising over 2200 boat slips, two hotels, two yacht club buildings, two boat yards, three shopping areas, restaurants, a Maritime Museum, over 100 condominiums and 485 apartments. In addition, public agencies have provided parks, restrooms, the public launch ramp and parking for the public. For more information on Channel Islands Harbor visit www.channelislandsharbor.org
