Mission Bay

While most of Mission Bay is limited to small boats/those with a short mast, the anchorage and marinas in the southwest corner just inside from the channel are not so limited. The Mission Bay YC is inside of one of the bridges, however, if I recall right. And Sea World is beyond a bridge on south-central Mission Bay. The entrance to Mission Bay is several miles north of the entrance to San Diego harbor.

Well, if Sunroad gave you the lowest quote, I am surprised. I am at Marina Cortez (west end of Harbor Island), and while we just had a rate increase, I am still paying less than the quote I got from Sunroad two years ago. Sunroad is a very nice Marina. Nice pool, dock areas parking etc. They are on the east end of Harbor Island shorter run to get out of the Marina and into the bay.

We kept our boat at Cabrilllo Isle Marina on Harbor Island for 2 years. Spent about 3 nights every other week on board and spent 2 weeks in winter and about a month on board each summer. The plane noise from SAN is a pain. Especially, the late night landings and early morning take offs. The marina was great. Great facilities, great neighbors, great location. The airport noise and soot (grit) on the boat was a pain though. If I were to do it again, I would probably find a space at Shelter Island as it seems more scaled to foot traffic than Harbor Island. Can't go wrong anywhere in San Diego Bay though. it is an awesome place to own a sailboat! Have fun!

We were at Kona Kai for months before heading to & coming back from Mexico. Pete ( dockmaster) was great! Noise was ok except when Navy planes went out day only -but it could also be interesting to watch Parking & doubles slips were a pain but it was closest to get out to sail. If you don't care about time to get out to ocean, marinas in Chula Vista & National City were cheap.

Re: San Diego Marinas

Hi, We live aboard at Kona Kai Marina on Shelter Island. Kona Kai did just raise their rates, both the per foot rate and the live aboard rate. We are quite happy here because they are very accommodating to live-aboards. The noise from the military planes can be loud, but it is infrequent.

Before we moved aboard full time, we kept our boat at Sunroad on Harbor Island. We didn't find the airplane noise to be much of a problem, maybe because we weren't under the planes but next to them. But we did hate the jet fuel residue that got all over everything. The boat had to be washed often. They would not allow us to live aboard, which is why we moved to Kona Kai.

We looked into Mission Bay, but there are several issues with it. 1. It is illegal to live aboard in Mission Bay. 2. Nowhere to go really in the bay, and a dangerous entrance/exit to bay (although they are working on fixing it so it is safer). 3. Ski boats and jet skiers overrun that bay, making it problematic for other kinds of boating. We have never had a boat there, but we would imagine that it would get plenty of airport noise since it is on the plane's flight path.
