Oceanside Harbor Welcomes Guest Boaters!

We have Twenty-four (24) 34' slips and several side ties set aside for cruisers that can be reserved with prior arrangements and payment. Reservations will not be accepted more than sixty (60) days in advance. The remaining guest spaces are available on a first come first serve basis. All incoming vessels that do not have a reservation need to pull into the “Guest Check-in Slips” (Guest slip #5, #6, #7) before coming across the street to reserve a slip.

Reservations can not be made by phone.

The following is required when making arrangements for a guest slip or an advance reservation. Whether in person or by mail no reservations will be accepted without the following:

  • Name, Address and Telephone Number
  • Copy of Current Boat Registration/Documentation
  • Boat Name
  • Boat Length and Beam

  • Current guest fees are:
    • $1.20 per foot per day (April thru September)

The Oceanside Harbor does not accept credit cards or debit cards.

If the reservation is made by mail, a receipt/confirmation will be returned to you by mail. If the reservation can not be accommodated, your request and check will be returned by mail. Reservations are only processed by office staff and during regular office hours. A maximum stay of 30 days will be allowed. Oceanside Harbor does not issue refunds. The slip will be held for your use for the duration of the reservation, regardless of arrival time. If you wish to cancel your reservation prior to your reserved arrival time, you may do so during regular office hours in person or by phone at 760-435-4000.
