Dear Marina Tenant,


Water is continuing to warm up with spots of 68 degree water along the coast and the first yellowfin tuna have shown up in local water. So local in fact, a Yellowfin Tuna was speared from the dock in Dana Point Harbor a day ago. We've also had BIG Bluefin tuna being caught in U.S. waters within 20 miles of the coast. It's shaping up to be another great fishing year in San Diego!


Every year for the 4th of July Big Bay Boom Fireworks show, the Port provides vehicle "Access Passes" for guests, patrons, employees, tenants and customers for a quicker pass-through at Harbor Police's Island checkpoints (but do not guarantee parking).


This year, the Port will be printing passes, and we will have them at the office later this month.


If you have any questions about the marina or suggestions on how we can improve your experience, please call us at (619) 574-0736 or come by the marina office.

Surfrider chair discusses San Diego chapter's role in maintaining beaches and bays


About two weeks ago on the deck at Paradise Point Resort, just as the sun started to set over Mission Bay, Surfrider Foundation San Diego County Chapter chair Mark West looked over his right shoulder to see the golden hour glow growing.

"See that? That's what it's all about," he said, as he waved his arms toward the bay. "That's why we're here."

"Here" was at the Surfrider Foundation San Diego County Chapter's 15th annual Art Gala, which raised $34,000 to help protect the region's coastline and directly benefit the organization's education, outreach and advocacy directed at protecting local beaches. The event, which was held Friday, May 8, celebrated ocean advocacy while showcasing local artists and raising funds.
U.S. delegation campaigns Mexican officials for more boating access

By: Parimal M. Rohit


SAN DIEGO - A delegation of boating and fishing interests from San Diego spent the better part of April in Mexico City and Mazatlan to create more opportunities for anglers and boaters to travel south of the border with minimal hassle.


Representatives from the San Diego Port Tenants Association (SDPTA), Sportfishing Association of California (SAC) and San Diego Unified Port District met with officials in the Mexican capitol and country's "Riviera" to improve the boating public travel south of San Diego with greater ease.


"The whole route is open. The port of San Diego is really keen on that," Ken Franke, president of SAC, said. "They are rolling out the red carpet for Americans to visit Mexico.

Dock Lines: What's going on with the San Salvador launch?
Dr Ray Ashley, president and CEO of the Maritime Museum of San Diego, stands by the hull of the San Salvador, the recreation of Cabrillos Spanish galleon, whose construction Ashley spearheaded. Capt. Nicole Sours Larson photo.

If you're a passionate San Salvador junkie like me, you're probably wondering what's really going on with the launch plans. I've recently spoken with Ray Ashley, longtime president/CEO of the Maritime Museum of San Diego, to get the inside scoop.


Ashley expected considerable criticism and second-guessing when he announced postponement of the ship's much-anticipated public launch two weeks before the event. Instead he received an outpouring of support from the public and the museum's backers and donors.


"The public response has been overwhelmingly positive. It has shown the degree of interest in the project - there are more people interested in it now than before," Ashley said.  


Ashley pulled the plug on the planned April 19 public ceremony after it became clear that the firm weighing the vessel prior to the launch had miscalculated its weight by about 20 tons. The museum's naval engineer, in verifying calculations and preparations, thought the reported 131-ton weight was "too good to be true." He was right, as consultants confirmed.
