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.

are raised in Humboldt Bay. That is all I need to know to make it one of my favorite places in this world. Lovely views, great kayaking, excellent walking beaches/sand dunes. A true paradise!

I would recommend to go check out the boats some big sail boats. Wish we were there at night the lights would have been pretty. Parking is kind of hard to find lots of of nice stores around. Bring a camera will take lots of pictures.

I spent a very enjoyable morning here, bird watching with a local group. I just wish I'd had more time. I saw several birds I'd never seen before. Lots of ducks and geese. I also got a stamp for my national parks passport. I would definitely like to go here again.

Didn't see much wildlife, mid-day - near end of April, but caught a glimpse of otters and egrets. Scenic otherwise, good for some good pictures.

We took a walk thru the wildlife preserve in the early morn. Lots of birds and deer. Easy walking trail out to views of the bay. Very peaceful. A few benches placed throughout the area. Take your binoculars if you are into birdwatching..
