Scenic harbor in between two beaches
Sep 2020
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.

Scenic Harbor area in Santa Cruz - Visited Again May 2020
May 2020
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.

Good Harbor Area - Santa Cruz Harbor
Dec 2019
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.

An unforgettable ride with Chardonnay Boat
Jun 2019 • Friends
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.

Whale Watching and Aldo’s
Jul 2019 • Friends
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

Cool harbor!
Jun 2019 • Family
This harbor is pretty nice. I like to go here to just watch the boat as they go in and out. I also always bring my camera because there is always something to capture like the Sea Otters that like to hang out.

The Ocean, the lighthouse, great beach, wonderful food and lights to buoy your spirits
Dec 2018 • Solo
The Santa Cruz Harbor Boat Parade is just one of the many great things that go on at the Harbor, you can walk 2.5 miles around the harbor on a nice path, or take off for an extended swim, kayak, beach hike and at the end of the day catch some tunes and great food at the Crow's Nest restaurant (or try the eggplant sandwich on the wharf, the snack shop makes a few grand vegan dishes and its the perfect place to sit and count gulls, pelicans or sea lions.

Beautiful Harbor Lights at Night
Nov 2018 • Family
We eat at the Crows Nest Restaurant on the Santa Cruz Harbor every time we vacation in Santa Cruz. The boats were getting ready for the December Lights Parade and were beautiful to see the evening we were there. Watched a gorgeous sunset also.
