Channel Islands Live Anacapa Island Webcam

Tim Hauf
 

The Anacapa Island Webcam is temporarily out of order. We are working on a replacement and hope to have it operating soon.


The Anacapa Island Webcam provides incredible views of the park's iconic symbol Arch Rock, seabird rookeries, and the historic lighthouse, as well as the ocean life and sea conditions at the landing cove and nearby waters.
