WELCOME to The Channel Islands Waterfront Homeowners Association


ABOUT US The Channel Islands Waterfront Homeowners Association is a volunteer organization composed of homeowners who reside within the Mandalay Bay portion of the Channel Islands harbor. There are approximately 700 single family homes within the Mandalay Bay. The Association’s primary mission is to serve as a liaison between the local government agencies and the homeowners. Over the years the Association has brought homeowners together and has been responsible for efforts to beautify, enhance, and protect the area. Currently, our primary focus is to work with both the City of Oxnard and the County of Ventura to ensure the maintenance of our seawalls and the quality of the water within our harbor.


Please slow down!   A ‘no wake zone’ is a section of waterway with a strict speed limit. When navigating through a no wake zone, state and federal regulations generally require that the captain observe the slowest-possible vessel speed to maintain steerage, but no greater than 5 MPH. The goal is to minimize the wake created by boats passing through the zone. This is to protect Boats, Docks, SEAWALLS and Vessels!

GET UP TO SPEED:For more background information:
There is a video of the October 2020 City Council meeting that contains 2 presentations that are part of the background to this meeting
