Kayak Fishing in Dana Point

Since Dana Point is our home town and back yard, we thought we would share some pictures of Baby's Beach and Doheny State Beach as well as links to hotels, restaurants, etc.. If you have any questions about the area, please e-mail us and we would be happy to answer your questions.

This is a picture from the North looking at the harbor. You can see Baby's Beach to the left, the Baby's Beach pier and the Ocean Institute to the lower right.

 

This is Baby's Beach looking from the parking lot. There is a lot of grassy area and tables with BBQ's to the right. Bathrooms and showers are nearby.

 

Landing at Baby's Beach

 

This is from the South of the State Park and Doheny State Beach. You can see the camping area to the bottom of the picture with the stretch of beach above and then the jetty wall.

 

Here are two pictures of landing at Doheny. During the summer months this beach is packed with families and surfers.

 

This is looking at the bait barge to the right of the jetty wall near the mouth of the harbor mouth.

 

This is the mouth of the harbor to the right and you can see the bait barge to the very left. This view is taken from the island.

 

This is one of the larger BBQ areas at Doheny that can be reserved. There are also individual tables near the sand and along the grassy areas.
