King harbor Marina is the old style california marina with wooden docks. The docks have been upgraded with fiberwood, making the docks better than the old plywood/planks that covered the docks before. The marina is a friendly, neighborhood like place, with a family-like feeling. There are ample docks carts. During storms there is a bit of a surge as the docks are close to the sea wall that can experience waves over the seawall. The docks are a very short distance to the fuel dock and ocean (only a few minutes). The marina is walking distance to many restaurants and shops at the pier.
