For most GPS map APPs it is best to enter "Central coast sailing charters" to find the parking lot for the Harford Pier. From this parking lot walk out onto the pier and find our sign using the directions below.
GPS POSITION OF MEETING AREA ON THE HARFORD PIER
35'10'13.0 N 120'45'19.0 W
Old School Directions:
From Highway 101: Exit at Avila Beach Drive and proceed west onto Avila Beach Drive. Follow Avila Beach Drive all the way to the end of the road and you will have found the Harford pier and Port San Luis Harbor parking lot. To find our meeting area from there walk out onto the Harford pier near the far end of the parking area. You will only be walking out about one third of the length of the pier. Here are a few land marks to help you find our meeting area, the first small building you will come to will be Patriot Sport Fishing (light blue in color) . Walk twenty yards past this building and you will come to a grey fenced in area. "STOP" LOOK ACROSS THE PIER DIAGONALLY TO YOUR RIGHT. THERE YOU WILL SEE A 2ft x 3ft sign Blue/Green in color with a large picture of a whale jumping out of the water on top with dark blue lettering "CENTRAL COAST SAILING AND AVILA BEACH WHALE WATCHING". This sign is attached to the pier railing at the public landing directly below a 5 mph speed limit sign. This is the sign you are looking for indicating that you have found the meeting area for Central Coast Sailing and Avila Beach Whale Watching. Please walk down the stairs to the landing below the pier and I will meet you there. The total walking distance on the pier is LESS THAN 100 YARDS.
DO NOT WALK TO THE END OF THE PIER!
If you get to MERSEAS restaurant you have gone too far!
OUR BOAT CAPTAIN WILL MEET YOU 5 MINUTES BEFORE THE START OF YOUR TRIP ON THE LANDING THAT IS DOWN THE STAIRS AT THE SIGN.
IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE FINDING THE SIGN CALL MARK (805) 540 4667
OUR TRIPS DEPART ON TIME SO PLEASE CALL IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE LATE SO WE DO NOT LEAVE WITHOUT YOU.
Parking is limited on summer weekends please arrive 30 minutes early to find parking. If you cannot find parking in the lot you can park in the dirt on either side of the road leading up to the RV overflow camping area.
