Oceanside, California

Kayak the Oceanside Harbor

Originally added by Josiah Roe

Unparalleled views of the Pacific Ocean and the Oceanside coastline.

Sea kayaking from the Oceanside Harbor public kayak launch is one of the best ways to experience the Oceanside coast and the Pacific Ocean.

There is ample parking along North Harbor Drive with the public kayak launch well-marked on the street.

You can paddle around the harbor or you can go out past the jetties to take in the entire coastline. There are some excellent fishing spots and local guides are available. You can also rent Hobie kayaks, which are a local brand and institution.
