Welcome to Santa Cruz Harbor. The harbor provides permanent moorage for approximately 1,200 wet-berthed and 275 dry-stored vessels. Santa Cruz Harbor is a special district operated by the Santa Cruz Port District Commission. The harbor office is located at 135 5th Avenue, Santa Cruz. The office is open 9:00 am to 5:00 pm every day. The R.V. park is located in the north harbor. Do not bring your rig to the harbor office. The Port District maintains a harbor patrol who are on duty 24 hrs/day. For emergencies dial 911, or you may contact a harbor patrol officer by cellular phone between 5:00 pm and 9:00 am (212-4261). As the officers do not always have the phone with them, please keep trying.

Limited parking is available in the launch ramp, or concession lot area. A free water taxi between the north harbor and beach area is available between 11:00 am - 6:00 pm on summer weekends and holidays, from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
An extensive walking trail completely surrounds the harbor. There are public stairs at various locations - Frederick Street park; Mello Lane; and at the bridge (west side).
