traveling via motorcycle... we were on the road fairly early. Weather was overcast and a little foggy. Just as we were rounding the Bay, a herd of elk was swimming or crossing. There were probably over 20 elk of all sizes. An amazing sight!

Take a walk along the boardwalk of the bay. It is beautiful. Take a ride on the bay in the madaket. It does cost., but a fun trip to be able to ride around the bay and see some wildlife of the bay. The Humboldt Bay is an important resource to Humboldt. Brining in fish ad crab, as well as... More

When you're in the area, find somewhere to stop and admire our beautiful Humboldt Bay. South end, go to King Salmon and walk the peaceful beach. Gather sea shells or watch the boats enter the jetty.

One of my favorite places on the planet. Beautiful waters, and if you have a boat, you can see the egret's rookery trees out on an island. Fresh!

We stopped here to do some birding. What a lovely spot to stroll and enjoy the area and birds. I plan on going back and doing more exploring.

The area is a mix between traditional building and modernised walkway but venturing further along the coast and visiting the nearby island watching the sun go down over the sea, was so nice an experience.

If you like oysters, anywhere around here is where you want to be. My favorite being the Waterfront Café Oyster Bar. If you enjoy birding spend a few days in this area. The diversity is incredible and volume is hard to beat anywhere else along the coast.

Expected a lot more out of the bay area. Smell was awful and people weren't real friendly. Only the tourists were nice and wait staff because they had to be. Would think twice about returning

Charter boats leaving from Humboldt Bay have had excellent June fishing for king salmon for at least the past 3 years. I paid $175- for a trip and returned with a 10 and 20 pound salmon caught less than 10 miles outside the Bay. Nothing beats fresh caught wild salmon.
