Port Hueneme, California



General Information

Port Hueneme is located in the City of Port Hueneme at the southern edge of the City of Oxnard.  The harbor was originally established in 1939 by the Oxnard Harbor District, but was divided into two jurisdictions after World War II. The U.S. Naval base at Port Hueneme has long been the home of the famed Navy Construction Battalion, otherwise known as the SeaBees. Other naval functions include training in electronic warfare systems and civil engineering. The other half of the harbor is operated by the Oxnard Harbor District, a major facility for the import of cars, fruit and frozen food. There are no public facilities for small boating and leisure craft.
