San Diego has one of the most beautiful natural harbors in the world, known as San Diego Bay. San Diego Bay is the closest body of water to downtown San Diego and spans from Chula Vista north all the way out to the Pacific Ocean. When kayaking here, you’ll see some of the most scenic views from the Coronado Bridge to Downtown, to the marinas of Harbor Island and Shelter Island, and beautiful Point Loma.
You’ll also see a variety of local wildlife in the bay including seals, sea lions, bottle-nose dolphins, and a wide variety of birds. This makes it the ultimate place to not only jet ski but take in the many gorgeous sites that San Diego has to offer. It is also a less crowded area for boating, making it a bit safer than other areas. Considered to be one of the best natural harbors on the west coast of North America, it was colonized by Spain beginning in 1769. San Diego Bay is a home port of major assets, including several aircraft carriers of the United States Pacific Fleet, and as a result of base closures beginning in the 1980s, facilities in San Diego Bay are the major naval base facilities still in operation in California.
Water temperatures in the bay in the summer and fall, even late into November, are typically around 72-74 degrees Fahrenheit (22-23 degrees Celsius). In the winter and spring months the temps can dip down into the mid 60s (18 degrees Celsius).
Mornings are typically your best bet to ensure light winds and a nice glassy water surface.
