We went to Santa Cruz Harbor. This is a fun place to go by the Pacific Ocean. Many were out going to their boats on this warm spring day in May.

We tried to order food for take out - but alas stayed on hold for over 10 minutes and they never took our order. This was at Crow's Nest.

Other than that we had a good time.

This is a picturesque harbor for small boats. At the entrance to the harbor is the scenic Walton Lighhouse located on the west side. As a tourist destination, it also has several restaurants facing the harbor for a good view of the harbor while enjoying your food. If you stay on the west side of the harbor, you have ready access to the Seabright Beach. If you stay on the east side of the harbor, you will be close to the Twin Lakes State Beach.

The best ride I have by now, with Chardonnay Boat. We were a group of 35, as the boat is expensive (2000 dollars /hour), but God...we have a lot of fun. Great food, wine and views for more than two hours.

Really interesting little harbor with a big ocean at it's door and alot of culture going on. Worth the trip down from the city to spend a day paddleboarding, or whale watching, drink coffe and walk beaches.

Here in the Harbor, you can SUP or catch a charter for fishing or whale watching. I've done all three and plan to go again and again.

It’s really the best seaside amusement park in the world. It has two sides and the only transportation is a granola! Explore the countless rides and experience the thrill!

We often visit Santa Cruz Harbor. This time we had lunch at the Crow's Nest. They have a parking lot (for a small fee) by the restaurant. There are many small craft in Santa Cruz Harbor. There are also boats that the public can take to go sailing on or go see whales.

We walk here quite often in the morning for our exercise routines, then will return for lunch or dinner at Aldo’s or the other restaurants on either side of the Harbor. When we go whale watching, the Sea Spirit Tours leave from dock I, so it is very easy to enjoy and walk the whole harbor anytime of the day
