  Island Packers Boat
by Cammel11

The most common way to get to Santa Cruz Island is by taking a boat from Ventura. Island Packers has a great boat, comfortable and fast! The ride from Ventura Harbor to Santa Cruz is about one hour. There are two places on the island where they can drop you off. One is Scorpion Anchorage and the other, Prisoners Harbor. The boats let you take as many things as you like, including your own kayak (for a small fee). You may bring your own or rent one at the facility next to Island Packers.

Here are the rates:
Scorpion Anchorage
Day $48 (3-4 hours on island)
Camper $64

Prisoners Harbor
Day: $48
Camper: $64

Mode: TO
Type: Ship/Boat
