Pier 29

Treat yourself to an exquisite meal surrounded by panoramic waterside views only a short walk from the marina. Pier 29 is a family-owned restaurant and bar that has been around for three decades and is a highly regarded fixture of the community. Situated in Alameda between the Ballena Bay Yacht Harbor and the San Francisco Bay, this popular spot features two large outdoor patios and a full-service bar. Seafood is the star of the menu here, but guests will also enjoy the freshest selection of steaks, chicken, pasta, lamb, hamburgers, pork chops, sandwiches, and the famous house-made clam chowder.

Club Nautique

Welcome to the premier sailing and powerboating school on the San Francisco Bay. Located onsite at the marina, Club Nautique features a world-class fleet as well as luxury yacht charters available for your next excursion. It also serves as Northern California’s Jeanneau dealer, an added perk whether you’re in the market for a new rig, or just want the chance to window shop.

Mike’s Paddle

Only a short walk from the marina, Mike’s serves as the go-to paddleboard shop on the San Francisco Bay for beginners and experienced paddlers alike. Here you can book a lesson with a seasoned expert, get some repair work done, or rent out a few boards or kayaks for an epic day on the water with your crew.

Harbor Mart

If you’re looking for a one-stop shop for household essentials within walking distance of the marina, head to Harbor Mart. This charming vendor is stocked with all the essentials, plus some helpful odds and ends–you’ll find everything from paper towels to wine, beer, and even fish bait. Drop by on the weekends for a delicious tri-tip sandwich and a friendly chat with fellow boaters.

Webster Street

Located a mile from the marina in Almada’s historic West End, this charming avenue is home to a collection of eclectic shops, boutiques, restaurants, and bars. With plenty of outdoor dining and broad sidewalks, Webster Street is the perfect destination for a leisurely shopping day followed by a cold drink and a delicious meal. Don’t miss this revitalized local hot spot next time you’re in town.
