The San Mateo County Harbor District operates both the Pillar Point Harbor in Half Moon Bay, and the Oyster Point Marina in South San Francisco. Pillar Point is a protected harbor of refuge and is homeport to a vital commercial fishing industry, sport fishermen, and recreational boaters. The Harbor has 369 berths and an inner and outer breakwater, making it one of the safest harbors in the United States. Pillar Point is unique in that it provides search and rescue services to all boaters in San Mateo County. Over the past two decades, its dedicated crew performed an average of 110 rescues annually, saved more than 100 lives and millions of dollars in boats and equipment. With 455 berths, a boat launching ramp, fuel dock, fishing pier, park, and small sandy beach, the Oyster Point Marina offers something for everyone, from serious boaters and fishermen to families looking for a day of hiking and beach time. The District has 37 employees, and its administrative offices are located in El Granada, north of Half Moon Bay. The region is known for its stunning coastal landscapes of rugged mountains and beaches, along with endless recreational resources including copious hiking trails, redwood forests, quaint shops, farm-to-table dining, including produce from local farms, some of which date back to the 1800s. And with San Francisco just 35 minutes to the north, there are unlimited possibilities for adventure, culture, relaxation and fun.
