in san diego
, first go to cop docks--other wise known as municipal docks, run by harbor police. there you find out about anchoring
in cruisers (a-9) anchorage. need a permit
and an inspection
for seaworthiness/safety by the harbor police. mooring
is under san diego mooring
company and requires a uscg aux safety inspection
. vanessa at the mooring company is th eone with whom to9 speak about finding a temporary mooring. good luck.
also in san diego is downwind marine--they have a cruisers guide to the trip south into mexico
. they are helpful to cruisers.
if you go to ensenada, there are options to the very high prices at coral
and cruiseport. juanitos botes is a good yet rickety dock
and no amenities. is a centrally located place near the port captain
. tell them i sent you. they are friends. is the blue and whiote dock
to the left when entering that harbor. not all the way to left, as those are the commercial
fishers and some are not good folks--have sticky fingers. juanitos is a safe place. good luck and smooth sailing. ther eis no anchoring
allowed in ensenada harbor except at certain times--i am not certain if baja
haha is one of those times.
