About the Harbor

Crescent City Harbor a newly rebuilt, state-of-the-art marina, with modern amenities for both recreational boaters and commercial fisherman. Our new harbor was dedicated on March 22, 2014.  The Inner Boat Basin marina has 240 slips which range in length from 30 feet to 70 feet and we offer side- tie moorage for vessels up to 175 feet long.  The harbor is dredged to a 12 foot depth.

The new Inner Boat Basin was designed to resist a 50 year Tsunami event. Thirty inch diameter piles, enclosed in HDPE sleeves, were driven from twenty one to thirty seven feet into the bedrock.  “H” dock is designed as a wave and current attenuator with many closely spaced piles to disrupt tsunami flow patterns within the harbor.

Wide concrete docks from Bellingham Marine with lighted Eaton power pedestals provide a safe and stable environment for your vessel and passengers. A new ADA compliant restroom facility with showers, a laundry room and an enclosed fish cleaning station, constructed in 2014, is available for use by our slip tenants.  A state-of-the-art, lighted, ADA compliant gangway allows tenants access to the new restroom and shower building.
