Eureka, once home to the booming California gold trade, a thriving logging industry, and some of the largest salmon runs on the West Coast, is now a town based around recreation, adventure, gambling and marine activities. About 233 miles north of San Francisco (as the crow flies), Eureka is among the last major harbors on the northern California coast before reaching the Oregon border, some 85 miles to the north.

Eureka has a safe and reliable entrance from the Pacific, good marinas and marine facilities and an interesting town and local economy to support it all.

Navigating the Water:

Use NOAA Chart 18622.

From the Pacific Ocean, pick up red and white Morse (A) buoy “HB” just west of Bar Channel, which leads to the inlet to Humboldt Bay. Flashing green “3” and flashing red “4” mark the north and south breakwaters of the entrance channel, respectively.

Once inside, the waterway makes a sharp turn toward the north, eventually turning into North Bay Channel just east of North Spit. Following the well-marked approach, North Bay Channel splits into Samoa Channel and Eureka Channel Inner Reach at flashing red “2.” Marinas should be visible to the east and west.
