There are some fantastic shops, restaurants and cafes surrounding the harbour, which houses over 2,500 boats when at full capacity. Renting catamarans to sail, boats for fishing out in the Pacific, jet skis and speed boats for water skiing is all very easy from self catering accommodation in Dana Point, and if you do not wish to captain your own vessel for the day, there are numerous charters to rent too.
