“Completely Modern” Ventura Marina, 1964

Ventura Yacht Club posted this photo of the “brand new Ventura Marina” dating back to opening day on March 19, 1964. In the original article, the caption below the photo read “Completely Modern: Pleasure boats fill slips at Ventura Marina, which has recently been completed.”

Nearly 55 years later, Ventura Port District has made plans to give the surrounding harbor and waterways in an extensive (and expensive) facelift, part of an effort to position it as what it believes will be one of California’s best boating destinations.
