MARINAS - CALIFORNIA

 

Alamitos Bay-Long Beach Marina is a 354 acre marina that has been in existence since the late 1950’s and is operated by the city of Long Beach. A natural bay surrounded by many offshore breakwaters and close proximity to Catalina Island plus perfect year round sailing makes this a very popular place. There are 1,991 slips available serving several yacht clubs. Live-aboard are welcome but their boats must be completely self sustaining. The city provides several pump out stations scattered around the area which are free and available 24 hours a day. Dry storage is available for kayaks, canoes and small sailboats only and trailerable boats up to 25’ have a secure, 24 hour owner accessible area with ramps close by. Sandstake/Rings are available on the Peninsula for public mooring, but there is a long waiting list. Guest mooring is available at $.80 per foot per day. The Davies Ramp is open 24 hours a day for launching boats but there are several other ramps open other times. Onshore amenities abound such as: basketball court, baseball field, soccer field, softball field, playground, restrooms, picnic area and Youth Recreation Program. This area is home to sailings Congressional Cup, Transpac and Olympic Sailing Trials.

 

Marina Harbor Anchorage is in Marina del Rey in Basin A off the main channel and is considered the largest marina in the world. Amenities include gated docks, a pool, spa, sauna, restroom, showers, gym and laundry facilities. There are 319 slips which handle boats from 20’ to 118’ boats or yachts with pump out stations and facilities for fueling. Water is provided but electric is metered with phone, DSL and cable hookup also available. Automobile parking is also included in your slip fee. Live-aboard and sublets pay additional fees and overnight moorage is figured at $3.00 a foot. This is a party place with shopping, restaurants and lounges. Conveniently nearby is an AMC movie theatre, so take in a movie or dine at a mystery dinner theatre. Hop aboard the WaterBus which makes six stops around the waterfront, so just park your boat and let someone else do the driving.

 

 Tahoe Keys Marina is the only inland marina for Lake Tahoe. This is a full service year round marina offering the expected and the unexpected. There are over 280 boat slips and indoor or outdoor and wet or dry dock storage. Purchase necessary supplies at the minimart or trust your boat to a fully certified Marine Service Department. There are shower facilities for tenants and their guests.

 

There are three token operated pump out stations with tokens available at the Harbor Master’s office. Shrink wrap coverage is required for winter storage of all boats. Since you are in a protected harbor fueling is safer due to much less motion. Access to this marina from the lake is through a well marked channel. Stay at the Marriott Timber Lodge Tahoe, a Marriott Time Vacation Villa resort.
