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.


In coordination with the California Office of Emergency Services, San Diego County Health & Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the U.S. Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection, and the Port of San Diego, the Celebrity Eclipse was cleared to dock at the Port of San Diego’s B Street cruise ship terminal on Monday, March 30, 2020 with approximately 2,500 passengers on board. Approximately 2,300 passengers will disembark over a two-day period.

Before the Eclipse arrived, the following precautions were put in place to minimize community spread of and exposure to COVID-19:


Prioritizing public health and well-being, and to help minimize the spread of and exposure to Coronavirus 019 (COVID-19), the Port of San Diego is closing public parks around San Diego Bay, which includes beaches, parking lots, piers, and boat launches. The decision is effective immediately, is consistent with the County of San Diego’s amended public health order and follows similar moves by the State of California and local city governments to further discourage non-essential gatherings of any size.

Closed signs are being posted at Port parks, parking lots, beaches and boat launches, and Port of San Diego Harbor Police will be working to educate the public about the closures and what is and isn’t allowed. Public access walkways, sidewalks, and promenades are open to allow exercise - walking, running and

By most accounts the Wonderfront Music & Art Festival which was held Nov. 22-24, 2019, was a successful venture. According to event promoter Ernie Hahn, who appeared before the Port of San Diego’s Board of Commissioners March 10, 2020, the multi-site festival designed to activate the waterfront had 57,000 attendees over the three days, generated 10,000 additional room nights in local hotels and created more than 27 million media impressions. 

What the Wonderfront event didn’t do was abide by their Coastal permit, regarding noise generated from the festival. Jennifer Rubin, who lives in close proximity to the Ferry Landing and is President of Coronado Coastal Conservancy, Inc. said, “The Port is very interested in hosting events to draw the public to the waterfront, which is a really worthy goal. Wonderfront was an egregious example of the

The 10th Annual Coronado Art Walk takes place this weekend only, Sept. 12-13, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Coronado Ferry Landing. Over 100 artists will participate in the juried show this year on the shores of San Diego Bay.

This exciting venue also includes art activities to delight all ages, and live entertainment both days. Admission is free. Over 10,000 people enjoyed last year’s Art Walk! This popular event attracts artists who work in a wide variety of media from many different parts of the country. A number of these artists have participated every year since the very first Coronado Art Walk ten years ago. Visitors will find ample parking on-site (there is a charge for parking), but here’s another idea! The San Diego/Coronado Ferry carries pedestrians and bicyclists back and forth across the bay (a fee is charged for ferry service), leaving every half hour.

The Coronado Art Walk is presented by the Coronado Historical Association, with support from the Unified Port of San Diego and donations from many others. For further information about this year’s big event, call the Coronado Visitor Center, (619) 437-8788, or log onto or

Entitled ‘An Unforgettable Evening with the San Diego Symphony,’ the next major element of Coronado’s 125th Anniversary Celebration (CC125) comes to the city Saturday, Aug. 15 at 7:30 p.m. Under the direction of Principal Summer Pops Conductor Matthew Garbutt, the symphony will perform a 15-song program that is scheduled to last two hours at Tidelands Park.

According to CC125 Chair Heidi Wilson, ‘An Unforgettable Evening with the San Diego Symphony’ is made possible by grants from the City of Coronado, the Port of San Diego’s Tidelands Activation Program; the County of San Diego’s Neighborhood Reinvestment Program and the Coronado Woman’s Club. In addition, financial contributions were made by individuals in the Coronado community. Wilson lauded the efforts of Coronado’s Port Commissioner Garry Bonelli and County Supervisor Greg Cox for their efforts on securing grants for the project.
