  • Just a lovely Harbor to walk around. One can also book an Ocean fishing trip from here and there are a couple good Happy Hours in the area as well.  more »
  • If you spend any time in Dana Point, you must visit the harbor. Our favorite thing to do is park as far west as you can and walk through the harbor, rewarding yourself at Lenders ice cream shop.  more »
  • If you are concerned about crowded marinas and out of control boaters than I would recommend using this location safe for the family. Everyone is very pleasant and welcoming.  more »

  • Gorgeous Harbor! Great Restaurants! Chart House has very nice views as you dine of entire harbour. Plenty of parks to picnic, and spend the day. Harbour is gorgeously decorated for Christmas & New Year every Year! A must see!
  • Fun place. Boating, restaurants, shops. Parking can be difficult on busy weekends.
  • Found this place on a mini road trip, beautiful harbour, love watching and listening to the seals, can't wait to go back!
  • Nice area with marine life, boats, beach, blue skies and other entertainment and shopping. Don't forget The replica of the Pilgrim, the brig of Dana's "Two Years Before the Mast", where he served as a "common sailor" on the merchant vessel. Located in front of the Ocean Institute.
  • One of very few harbors in Orange County. Kayak rentals are available. Fishing , whale watching cruises are offered. Catalina Express offers charter boats to Catalina Island. So many good restaurants are available.
