The City of Port Hueneme, founded in the early 1900's, was given the American Indian name for "resting place." With a boundless array of unbroken, white sandy beaches, sky-blue waters, and tranquil seaside plains, This ocean front town is home to the only deep-water commercial harbor between Los Angeles and San Francisco with Customs Port of Entry and Foreign Trade Zone designation.
The recent addition of the United States Navy Seabee Museum (pictured above) opened just a few years ago features exhibits from World War II to the present. As Seabees continue to serve throughout the world, the museum honors the service to our nation of the See Bees for the last 70 years. As a personal note, my former wife's uncle, at the age of 16 enlisted in the Navy in the closing days of WWII and was stationed here in Port Hueneme training for the invasion of Japan that fortunately never occurred. Thirty years later, my cousin Marvin, a career sailor was also stationed here in Port Hueneme during his last posting.
At the age of 12, I first went fishing leaving from the Port of Hueneme to the Channel Islands. In those days, the Norton Sound, a missile tracking ship was docked in the Port. The Pacific Missile Test Range, with facilities in China Lake in the Mojave desert to the outer Channel Islands, the test range has been an integral part of our nations defense. Later, as an avid SCUBA diver, I made countless trips from the Port to the islands. Once the Port started commercial re-development in the 1980's, first as the import destination for Mazda, the fishing and dive boats moved to the Channel Islands Harbor.
The Navy still has a presence in the Port and with a direct rail line, is an important link in the supply chain to the Gulf.
