Peninsula Yacht Marina seems the best deal in town. Very kewel people in the office and good availability (Oct2016) of slips. Bring a 30A(fem) to 3-prong(male) adapter for their unorthodox electrical outlets, which are metered for long term leases. Food, West Marine, and provisioning are all within walking distance for the Cruiser. Spearfisher folks and SUP people should visit AHOY!... More

There is always something going on so before you visit look up the calendar, especially in the summer.

We'd been visiting up here for a few years and were astonished by how quiet and beautiful it is at this harbor. The restaurants were friendly, the beaches empty and the folks walking around were smiling and relaxed. Also love our farmers market on Sunday!!

Our boat went through the harbor out to our trip to Anacapa Island. We walked around the harbor prior after our boat ride and enjoyed all of the food and shops and thankful for public restrooms.

We mostly visit the harbor to walk. There are many beautiful walks available along the shoreline. I'd recommend Hopper Boat rentals to rent an electric boat or paddle boat. It's always a relaxing and fun thing to do. It takes about an hour and a half to go all the way to Seabridge and back, more if you explore the... More

They charge you $8 to park. It's more a donation for nothing than something for your money. There is plenty of parking so it's not like your paying for something in short supply. I never saw any security in the 2 hours I waited for a boat.

I've come to this farmer's market every Sunday for the past month now, and I've not been disappointed. It's not a big farmers market, but it's got fresh seafood and fresh local produce and artist clothing. Hopefully this Sunday farmer's market will get bigger, this way, I have more reason to come and visit every weekend.
