We have visited Pillar Point Harbor numerous times,. This time we visited the calamari (squid) fishing ships were in and as such lots of bigger boats and the harbor was busy., We have also been there during crab season. Throughout the year as fish are in season, people go here to buy fish right off the boat. Since crab season is in the winter, its very popular to stop by here during the holidays to buy crab fresh and right off the boat. Other times of year, salmon might be for sell,.
Its a fun place to walk the harbor area and see the boats. its also a place where you can rent kayaks and go out kayaking.
Deep sea fishing excursions are also available from the harbor area.
There are numerous restaurants right by to enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner....or just to have a drink.
People can also go recreational fishing.
We always enjoy visiting this area, and if in Half Moon Bay, recommend stopping by and seeing this lively harbor area.
There is parking (for free with some time limitations - 2 hours or so) close by.
The harbor master office is also in this area and there you can see the fish count for the day as well as read about the history of the area.
