    This is a great place to stop and look at boats. Easy walking harbor in El Granada. Restaurants also located in the area. Good spot on sunny days.  more »

    Tuna, king fish, rock fish, crab... Fishmen were nice and friendly! Walked to whichever is selling the fish, chat and bought some home for dinner! So much fun in fish shopping on the dock!  more »

    If you are fortunate enough to get a spot here you will not willingly let it go until death. This is a great place to launch a fishing trip for all kinds of sea creatures. The staff at the harbor maintains it to the highest standard. The community that exists between boat owners here is symbiotic and beautiful.

    Great place to visit. On Sundays you can buy crab and Sea Urchins right from the fishing boats. Great experience and fun for the whole family. We had a tremendous time here.

    A great harbour experience!!! Fresh catches of the day can be purchased from the local fisherman, a great pier to wander and check out the boats. For boaters the docks are a little run down, and there are some pretty rough boats, but it has its charm. The anchorage is amazing and best of all free, once you get used to the fog horn.

    Come on down on a nice day and tour the fisherman's pier, see the crab boats and yachts in the harbor. Plenty of wildlife as this is all part of Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary: sea lions, seals, littoral creatures and birds, etc. Frequent whale sightings! Several places to eat nearby, plus Maverick's Surf Shop and HMB kayak rental. If you're bringing your boat, call the harbormaster for slip availability - easy marina to access, just watch the shoals before the breakwater. Marine fuel and pumpout (remember this is a marine sanctuary!) available. Markets within walking distance; check out the new Spangler's.
