Channel Islands Map
NatGeo #252

California Islands Map
Several islands exist off the coast of California. Catalina Island is by far the most popular, but not included on this map. Some refer to these as the Santa Barbara Islands, since they are out near the Santa Barbara Channel.

Many islands are inaccessible, but the Channel Islands are indeed a National Park – reachable only by boat or by air – from the Ventura coastline. Advanced reservations will be needed to book a boat trip or a flight to the islands.
