Channel Islands Harbor: Facebook Year in Review

Taking a trip down memory lane is always fun, especially when it’s at the Channel Islands Harbor. Based on your engagement (likes/comments/shares/clicks), we’ve compiled the top 10 Facebook posts from 2018 for you to enjoy and reflect. We did not include our top videos or links to blog articles we’ve shared. We will save that for another day!

Without further ado, check them out!

10. Sailing In

We are one of the largest recreational Harbors in California. That means there’s plenty of boats coming in and out of the Harbor. If you can’t sail, there is nothing like watching them come in when the sun is setting!


9. Sunset Sip

As the year draws to an end, the sunsets get more intense. There’s nothing like enjoying a glass of your favorite vino while taking in the magic of a November sunset.


8. 4th of July at the Channel Islands Harbor

We are home to Ventura County’s only seaside fireworks show. Thousands of people come down to the Harbor to enjoy recreational activities and celebrate America!


7. Honoring Sgt. Ron Helus

It was a devastating day for the community when Ventura County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Ron Helus lost his life during a response to a mass shooting in Thousand Oaks. The Harbor lowered its flags to half-staff to honor Helus, his family, law enforcement, and the victims and families affected.


6. Harbor Sunrise

Harbor sunrises are just as epic as Harbor sunsets. This photo was taken near the Pacific Corinthian Yacht Club and is sensational!


5. Harbor Views from Up Above

You know the Channel Islands Harbor is a beautiful place when you visit. Have you seen this view from up above? Even better!


4. Surfing at Strand

The Harbor is lined by Hollywood and Silver Strand beaches. This epic photo was taken in November.


3. Spectacular Sunset!

Seriously. You need to see a Harbor sunset for yourself!


2. December Sunset

Our December sunsets just aren’t fair. This one was taken from Silver Strand Beach.


1. Support for our First Responders 

We were all in shock in November. A mass shooting in Thousands Oaks was quickly followed by wildfires to the south of the Harbor, with smoke creating a doomsday-like backdrop. Fortunately our first responders did a great job and protected our communities!


Overall, it’s been a fun year for our Facebook community. If you didn’t know we had a Facebook page, here’s your chance to follow along. Click here to visit our page.
