Boaters visiting San Diego can now reserve a slip even before dropping anchor and setting foot on land.

The San Diego Harbor Police Department has launched an online service as a convenience for recreational boaters and visitors to San Diego Bay. Previously, the only ways to request a slip were to initially dock and reserve in-person or to place a call, while availability was first-come, first served.

The new website allows boaters to see details about all Port-managed anchorages in the bay, check for availability up to two weeks in advance, and pay for a slip reservation using a credit card. Once confirmed, boaters can dock their vessel. For customers who don't have internet access, a self-service reservations kiosk is available at the southwest end of Shelter Island.

The Port of San Diego sees itself as an economic engine, an environmental steward of San Diego Bay and the surrounding tidelands, and a provider of community services and public safety.

A complete list of San Diego Bay anchorages is available here.
