Introduction:

Conveniently located in popular Los Angeles, Long Beach is centrally located to all of the local attractions and is only a short 21 miles form Catalina Island. Home to the famous Queen Mary and the Aquarium of the Pacific, Long Beach is an excellent place for a stopover on your journey up or down the Pacific Coast.

A large municipal marina offers full service slips with deep water and easy access to transportation and provisioning possibilities. If you want to access the famous beaches here, you can go to Marina Green Park off of Shoreline Drive, or continue to Bluff Park at the corner of Ocean Boulevard and Junipero Avenue or proceed on Ocean Boulevard towards the peninsula and park in one of many parking lots available for the beachgoer. Taxicabs are readily available if you do not have a rental.


Navigating the Water:

Use NOAA Chart 18749.

Long Beach and the Los Angeles Harbor areas are a busy mix-match of commercial heavy freighters, tugs and naval vessels that ply the water right alongside recreational sail and power boaters. With all of this traffic, a close watch on your chart for warnings and restriction notices along with a good eye on other traffic is totally necessary, not optional.

The Long Beach Harbor Municipal Marina is the largest marina in the area and is bordered by a smaller private marina (Rainbow Harbor) to the east (visible in the image above across from the Queen Mary). Island Grissom, which sits to the east of the larger municipal marina, is marked by a quick flashing red light on its west side. As with many California Harbors, a parallel breakwater protects the enclosed harbor from swells and commercial traffic wakes. The flashing lights on this structure guide you into the facility. Depths are 20 to 40 feet deep inside and out of the marina.

Further travel up Queensway Bay to the east leads to a dead end at the end of a flood control channel and is crossed by a fixed bridge with a 45-foot vertical clearance.
