Kayaking in San Diego Bay

San Diego Bay is one of the most beautiful natural harbors in the United States. It is the closest body of water to downtown San Diego and spans from Chula Vista north all the way way out to the pacific ocean. When jet skiing here you can see some of the most scenic views from the Coronado bridge, to downtown, marinas of harbor island and shelter island and beautiful Point Loma. 

You can also see a variety of local wildlife in the bay including seals, sea lions, bottle-nose dolphin, and a wide variety of birds. This makes it the ultimate place to not only jet ski but take in many sites that San Diego has to offer. It is also a less crowded area for boating and jet skiing 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.
