Nice anchorage in summer months between the Avila pier and the Cal Poly Pier. Moorings can be had closer to the NW Port San Luis Pier. Only 4 stars because there is no dinghy dock, just a landing dock. No beach access by dinghy. Difficult to enjoy shore activities especially if you have dogs.

Good holding in 25 ft of water. As of March 2018 the pier to the south which is a public pier is being worked on and is closed so if the swell is up and beach access is not possible the only other place to dingy ashore is at the pier in the far northwest corner of the bay which is about a mile away. There are a few restaurants, a boat yard and some fish markets at that pier but that is all.
