Awesome location.

So cool to experience this from the water! We took our Freedom Boat Club center counsel from the SD Bay to Mission May. Tons of USN history here, and the rock is epic.

Poor drive

The drive to this point is full of headaches. Once you get here, it is nice. Nothing much but stare at the harbor.

Lovely place to go to enjoy the ocean. There’s a tide pool to check out all the creatures and a couple of beaches.

Beauty And History

Point Loma is a beautiful place with lots to see just minutes from downtown San Diego. We enjoyed the commanding view of the Naval station and watching the fighter jets and transport planes taking off and landing. We enjoyed seeing the tidepools and the beautiful wildlife there. We enjoyed the old lighthouse and the brief tour available there. And we enjoyed Cabrillo Point where the 16th century explorer first landed.

All in all, it's a wonderful spot to spend at least a few hours if not an entire day.

Active along the bay
Aug 2020
Along the bay in Pt. Loma you'll find sweeping views, a bayside path that passes many mansions, Kellogg Beach, 5 yacht clubs (if you continue on to Shelter Is.), and shorebirds hanging out. In Sept. 2020, the small shopping area includes cafes with outdoor dining, a local Post Office, a drug store, a chocolate shop, a book shop, the Portuguese Hall/market, and several other small shops.

Seemed like only 3 hours of fishing for a 12 hour trip kinda pointless to pay so much for a bad experience . checked with other friends who booked on other charters and they had no problem getting their limits. really felt ripped off

Great views

Great place to see some of the Navy Aviators do their flight training. You may even be able to catch a dog fight... with the planes.

Nice location to get good views of San Diego and the Pacific ocean. A national park that resides within a military facility.
