Set sail in San Simeon to explore an entirely different side of the town. Boating and kayaking are popular among locals and tourists, and there’s no better way to see the sights than to head out onto the water.

Launching Watercraft
Leffingwell Landing Day-use Area and William Randolph Hearst Memorial State Beach are the perfect spots to launch your watercraft, boat or kayak, but surf conditions can change rapidly, so please launch with caution.

Motorized Watercraft
Please note those motorized watercraft are not allowed in the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary area.

San Simeon Tides
Calm and smooth tides early in the morning or at sunset are the common times when boats sail away from their docks in San Simeon. However, midday when the breeze has picked up, boats can still be found sailed away allowing the wind to carry them through the rolling tides. Discover San Simeon tide information in preparation for your boating adventure.
