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.

National Geographic’s Trails Illustrated Map covers (with unparalleled detail) the 5 islands that encompass the park, including The Nature Conservancy area of Santa Cruz Island and the State Marine Reserve Areas that surround the islands. Provides background information of the park and of each individual island along with its regulations and guidelines. In addition, information regarding transportation to the islands is given, as well as land (hiking), water (swimming, snorkeling and diving) and boating / kayaking safety warnings.
