In coordination with regional partner agencies, and with public health measures remaining in place to continue to minimize the spread of and exposure to COVID-19, kayaking, paddle boarding, and swimming will be allowed on San Diego Bay beginning at sunrise on Monday, April 27, 2020. This follows and complies with the County of San Diego’s modified public health order. Gatherings of any size are still not allowed, which means these activities may only be done solo or with members of your own household, and social/physical distancing from those outside of your household must continue to be followed.

The Port is taking a phased approach to reopening public spaces in compliance with County Health guidance and in coordination with other coastal jurisdictions. San Diego Bay remains closed to recreational boating, and Port parks, parking lots, piers, and launch ramps remain closed at this time.

Public access walkways, sidewalks, and promenades along the bayfront continue to be open to allow exercise – walking, running, and cycling.

The Port encourages the public to continue to follow State of California and County of San Diego public health guidance – wash your hands often and for 20 seconds each time, avoid touching your face, and regularly clean frequently touched surfaces. Beginning May 1, wearing face coverings while out in public and within six feet of others will be required throughout San Diego County.
