Shelter Island Boat Launch

Old Shelter Island Boat Launch

Shelter Island - San Diego
NOTE: Shelter Island Boat Launch will be undergoing rennovation in 2017-18 The launch ramp will be closed during construction, but one lane will remain open during the summer months. Click here for information.

The Shelter Island Boat Launching Ramp is a several acre facility located at the northwestern end of San Diego Bay. This ramp provides the closest access to the Pacific Ocean (approximately 3 miles away). Rest rooms and a large parking lot are immediately available. For visiting fishermen, the bait receivers, at Everingham Brothers Bait Barge, where anchovies and sardines can be purchased, are located on the right side of the channel as you exit the harbor. The bait barges are open 24-hours per day.
