Relaxing flat stroll along the harbor. Be sure to go over the bridge over to the Island and watch the sailboats leaving and returning. Great place for a picnic.
This is a must see! Enjoy a picnic or casual to fine dining after strolling around the harbor shops, checking out the boats or kayaking or stand up paddling. You can rent jet skis too!
Great place to take a stroll, check out the boats & yachts, watch the sunset, smell the ocean breeze & of course admire the ocean view, occasionally see dolphins & sea lions. Offers a catamaran sunset and wine cruise, whale watching, paddle boarding, beach, and places to eat.
So much going on here. Sport fishing, whale watching, paddle boarding and kayaking.
