Shelter Island is a neighborhood of Point Loma in San Diego, California. It is actually not an island but is connected to the mainland by a narrow strip of land. The "island" is 1.2 miles (1.9 km) long and only a few hundred feet wide. A single street, Shelter Island Drive, runs the length of Shelter Island and also connects it to the mainland via a causeway lined with marine-related businesses. It was originally a sandbank in San Diego Bay, visible only at low tide. It was built up into dry land using material dredged from the bay for US Navy requirements in World War II. It has since been developed and contains hotels, restaurants, marinas, and public parkland.

Shelter Island is owned and controlled by the Port of San Diego, which also provides all police and other public services. Shelter Island businesses lease their location from the Port. Their Maritime Services Division is composed of three departments – Marine Operations, Maritime Trade Development and Maritime Properties and Facilities. Maritime Operations monitors all vessel activities at the Port’s cargo and cruise terminals, including several mooring areas and commercial piers around San Diego Bay.

Take advantage of some of those anchoring destinations such as Glorieta Bay in Coronado, La Playa Cove in Point Loma and Mariner's Cove in Mission Bay. All three are fabulous, well protected, scenic anchorages. Reciprocal yacht club privileges are another fun way to visit different parts of the bay.

Or enjoy a day on the water. A day sail in San Diego can easily include open ocean sailing with views of Hotel del Coronado, Point Loma Lighthouse and the Los Coronados Islands of Mexico or a scenic sail by the San Diego waterfront with features like the historic Star of India, the USS Midway museum and the Coronado Bay Bridge.
