It is about 4 miles. Google maps says it is 10min. or so by taxi/car and about 1/2 hour by bus so you could choose which is best for you:

See Google map below for bus routes:

I would agree with Google maps. It is about 10 minutes either by freeway or surface streets.

If you want to do the OCTA bus, you would take the 91 southbound from the train station to Dana Point, and transfer to Route 1 west bound to the Harbor area, which does require a bit of a walk. I would opt for a taxi, about a 5 mile drive, so $20 or so.

If you take the bus, you dont have to transfer, just walk from the PCH/Del Obispo stop
