Huntington Harbor Kayak, Canoe, SUP & Kayak Fishing Information

 Huntington Harbor is located a few miles north of Newport Bay. Huntington Harbor and Kayak Fisihing Huntington HarborNewport Bay are similar to one another. Both locations have waterways that meander in and out along waterfront homes and both have marinas filled with an array of beautiful boats. Huntington Harbor also has two marsh-like areas.

Kayaking allows you to launch from any small beach but the favorite launch accesses are in Sunset Beach on the channel side (east side) of Pacific Coast Highway between Warner Avenue and Coral Cay Lane or on the small Mother's Beach at Humboldt Island. Novice kayakers new to the sport will do well to take a few lessons for paddling and capsize rescue. Many kayak retail stores not only sell the equipment, but also offer kayak lessons and rentals on an hourly basis.

 There are an abundance of arms throughout Huntington Harbor which inhabit halibut, bass and a number of other species of fish. Beginning in the Fall halibut fishing in the harbor areas of Southern California picks up as the fish move into the shallow harbors to spawn. Numerous kayak anglers target the spawning fish using live bait rigs and circle hooks.

Open: Huntington Harbor is open daily for boating, twenty-four hours a day, year-round with running lights at nights. The entire harbor has a 5 m.p.h. boat speed limit.
