Boating on the California Coast is a special experience. California is lucky to have an irregular coastline with large bays, harbors, river estuaries, and protected coves. Marinas along this shoreline offer services, moorage, and protection from storms for yachts and sailboats. If you are just passing through, call ahead to make sure they have temporary docks, fuel, or other services you might require.

Here is a list of the coastal counties of California with links to the state agency that tracks the public and private marinas, yacht clubs, fuel docks, boat launches, and other boating-related facilities.
