Slip Reservations


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 be made by emailing with the following information:

  • Name, Address and Telephone Number
  • Copy of Driver's License
  • Copy of Current Boat Registration/Documentation
  • Boat Name
  • Boat Length and Beam
  • Type of Boat (Sail, Power or Multi-hull)
  • Dates Requested
  • Current guest fees are:
    • $1.40 per foot per day (April thru September)
    • $ .90 per foot per day (October thru March)

Once all required information is received a member of our staff will contact you to arrange payment. The Harbor accepts credit cards (Visa, MasterCard and Discover), checks, money orders and cash.

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. Rain checks are available, but there are no refunds. Any rain checks must be used within 12 months.
