From the launch facility, it is only a short five minutes to the ocean. Also available in the Harbor is an all year bait receiver, Dana Point Fuel Dock, Dana Point Shipyard and marine hardware stores. The shipyard has a 30 ton crane and a 50 ton travel lift enabling them to lift up a 70 foot boat into dry dock. There are do it yourself areas as well as expert full service. Excellent and speedy inflatable boat and outboard engine sales, service and repairs are available in the Harbor as well.
There are four boat brokers in the Harbor as well as two yacht clubs and the Aventura Sailing Association. Small powerboats, sailboats and jet skis may be rented for the day. Charters on larger boats are available too.
One will find every style and every taste represented in the shops in Dana Wharf, Mariners Village and Mariners Alley. From dressy and classic to T-shirts, bathing suits, and beachwear.....you'll see it all in the ship to chic clothes that will catch your fancy. You'll also find jewelry, unique gifts, handmade chocolates, fine ice cream, trinkets, special cards, apparel, Indian art and housewares in the 25 shops found at the Harbor.
Open Air Relaxation Select a restaurant from some 20 available at the Harbor that offer food for your every mood - from snappy sunrise breakfasts, fish platters and hamburgers, to scrumptious lunches and romantic dinners. Enjoy dining in a quiet, cozy spot where you can watch the sea, boats and people pass by.
For a quick pick-me-up, enjoy your favorite ice cream, grab a hamburger, fish sandwich or some picnic fixings. Sample some yogurt to satisfy your sweet tooth. Relax over a rich cup of coffee, a refreshing cool drink or a tasty snack. It's all here.....and don't forget some candy for that special gift!
If you prefer enjoying the beauty of the ocean from shore, relax on the half-mile picnic park island where there are picnic shelters with barbecues on wide grassy areas. Watch the boats sail in and out of the Harbor and listen to the music of the sea. Visit the nine-foot bronze statue of author/seaman Richard Henry Dana as he gazes across the Harbor. His novel, Two Years Before the Mast, describes the charm of the cliffed cove named after him, Dana Point Harbor, which he called the only romantic spot in California.
Also visit Anaheim Orange County, presented by the Anaheim Visitors and Convention Bureau. They'd like to provide you with information to help you plan your trip or convention!
