Ventura Harbor Shoaling
Posted on Jan 19th, 2016 Comments (0)
The Harbor Entrance is experiencing strong currents, shoaling, and breaking waves within the channel.  We anticipate the two large surf events arriving in the next couple of weeks will further complicate this problem.  We are working with the US Coast Guard, Army Core of Engineers, and Manson Dredge to try to expedite dredging of the Harbor.  The Dredge is scheduled to arrive in the next couple of weeks if the weather and shoaling cooperate.   Once dredging begins the hazard should be quickly removed.
Crossing the entrance is extremely hazardous and only allowed by permission of the Harbor Patrol.  Non-Essential transiting is discouraged and nighttime crossing is by permission only.  Crossing without permission is a Federal Offense and can result in civil penalties by the US Coast Guard. 
Questions or Concerns can be directed to the Harbor Patrol @ 805-642-8618  or Marine Channel 16 or 12

Stranded Sea Lions
Posted on Mar 24th, 2015 Comments (0)
It has been a record breaking year for sea lion stranding on the beach. You can help by ALWAYS bringing a leash when you walk your dogs. A dog's normal curiosity is very threatening to seals and sea lions. If you see a seal or sea lion trying to leave the water and get to shore, please let them. If people crowd the shoreline, get them to back up and make lots of room, so the animal can come on shore to rest.
