The area also welcomes jet-skis, so speed demons abound.
Paradise for Water Lovers
Oceanside Harbor in San Diego is a paradise for Californian boats and yachtsmen. With one of the longest wooden piers on the coast, Oceanside is a marvel for whale-watching and even surfing. The heart of Oceanside lies in its fishing – it offers boats and anglers from all over the state come to fish this area to catch bonitos, butterfish, halibut, kelp bass and many more types of fish.
If You Love the Lake Life
For lake lovers, Shasta Lake in Shasta County is a lovely option. This is the state’s largest reservoir and boasts eight different marinas. This Northern California lake welcomes all to its shores. Be surrounded by stunning mountain views and evergreen trees. Popular for water sports, especially water-skiing and wakeboarding, you will also find an array of towable water toys floating and gliding across the water.
Clear Lake, located north of Napa County, is another stunning option for lake lovers and boaters alike. Popular for watching wildlife, this fresh water fishing paradise is just a few hours north of San Francisco. Known for being the “Bass Capital of the West,” two-thirds of the fish caught in this lake are largemouth bass. You can also spot bald eagles, blue herons and ducks, while the area surrounding the lake is home to deer and mountain lions.
Simply hop on your Sea Ray or center console boat – both ideal for lake cruising to start your trip.
