There is only one choice in O'side and thats the city run marina, (760) 721-1101. We have had several boats there over the years. There are three transiant docking
areas. You will enter the outer basin and then procede to the inner where you will have a T intersection. Directly in front of you is the maina office and about 25 guest slips. These get a bit of serge and quite a bit of traffic wakes. You will be directed to tie up at a reception dock
next to the travel lift
and go up to the office to regester. There are two other guest docks. If they give you a choice take the "Jolly Rodger" dock
. It is out of the swell and traffic. The third choice is along the rip rap wall by the fuel
dock. If you have a very large boat (50+) they usually move you there and its the least favoriable.
One other option is the Oceanside YC guest dock. Its an end tie about 80' long. You can call the O'side YC to make a reservation for it, (760) 722-5751. The YC is a bit sleepy however the have a great Monday Night Football pot luck thats open to everyone.
A few years ago O'side use to be a real favorite with the Southbound boats but about 5 years ago the raised the guest slip rates (.90 per foot)and they havent been as busy. Beware of an uncoming event "Oceanside Harbor Days" It runs 9/20-9/21.
