  • This is a fully equipped marina with plenty of amenities. Even have a large parking lot for an RV park when passing through the area. Great for a fully self contained RV to setup and be walking distance from the fishing. Plenty of jetty walls to block the waves so you can get out and kayak fish easily from the launch ramp area too.
  • Very interesting and well laid out. Seems pretty organized. Would love to see a museum area for old shipping items and perhaps even some urban legends or stories old/new regarding fishing, industry or the people.
  • Best place to buy fresh fish. Fresh off the boat. Sushi grade fish
  • The best seafood dinner we've had , in a while at Ketch, Joanne. Fresh food, great drinks, We will definitely go back.
  • My Brother in law crabs out of this harbor and I get to go visit him tgere occaisionally and buy some crab. Chris on the Tonita, he not only fishes for dungeness but also for rock crab. He supplies the Monterey Bay Aquarium with rock crab for the otters.
