Exit at Victoria Avenue and proceed south.  Follow Victoria Avenue about six miles to Channel Islands Boulevard; turn left on Channel Islands Boulevard, and follow it to Ventura Road.  Turn right on Ventura Road; the first entrance to the base is at the Sunkist gate.  Once through the gate, Sunkist Street turns into 23rd Avenue. Keep straight on 23rd Avenue past Pacific Avenue; EXWC is the first large building to your left.

Take the Santa Monica Freeway exit, keep left at the fork; follow signs for Interstate 10 West/Santa Monica and merge onto I-10/Santa Monica Freeway (3 miles).  Continue onto CA-1 North/Pacific Coast Highway for roughly 40 miles to the East Port Hueneme Road exit; turn left onto E Hueneme Road westbound to North Ventura Road. Turn right onto North Ventura (heading northbound), and gradually merge into the left lane in preparation for a left turn in 1-1/2 miles at Sunkist street.
