California Canoe & Kayak at Pillar Point Harbor        

Since 1993 we've operated our premier coastal center from the shores of Pillar Point Harbor, Half Moon Bay. The harbor area is an excellent venue for a wide range of kayaking and Stand Up Paddleboard activities. 

We have recently moved to the public launching facility at the southern end of the harbor.

Here is a Google map link of our new location:

Parking: Please note parking for our new facility is in the main parking lot. You may use the 20 minute parking to drop off your kayak or equipment but you should then park your car in the main car park using the single space parking spaces only. Double spaces are for vehicles with trailers only. At no time should you park at the wash station facility at the boat ramp. Thank you for your cooperation.
