SoCal Destinations

The lady and I are taking a couple of weeks off. We live aboard in the San Diego Area and are looking for cool stuff to do. We are kind of planning on taking a little mini cruise. We've done mission bay and the Coronados. Catalina is looking like a bit of a stretch right now (bit too much work). What are some cool anchorages/sights to see via sailboat in the area? Does Dana point have an anchorage? Is Dana point cool? Is Zoonega cool? Glorieta Bay? Any hidden Gems?

Dana Point has a nice museum. have you gone to mision Bay. Glorietta Bay is nice too. Really depends on what you want to do. anchor or sail. We did a real nice four day trip. Started from Coronado Cays sailed up to SDYC anchorage then out thru point loma and then up to Mission Bay. From there depending how hard I wanted to sail I would got to Oceanside or Dana Point. I've actually done the trip from Customs dock to newport in one day. From Dana Point to Catalna is only a 25 mile trip If you don't want to go to Catalina you can work your way further up the coast.this is a real good book about the California coast.

zuniga is open ocean but only 10 ft deep for anchoring--is where the anchor outs are required to reside anymore---the jetty itself isnt cool--holes boats and hides in high tide....glorietta bay is ok for 3 days at a time, required to get a permit 24 hours in advance from the port nazis....oops--i mean harbor po lice......there arent really any close places to go--ye have already dont them lol.....have fun!!.
