Harbor Reconfiguration

In December 2019, the Navy embarked on a five year project to build a replacement ammunition pier and to upgrade safety and security inside Anaheim Bay. (The image shows the current configuration that separates civilian boats from Navy operations.) The old route is now off limits and has become part of the Naval Weapon’s Station restricted area. Due to this reconfiguration, changes have been made to the proper route for boaters returning to Huntington Harbour, but Marine Charts, both electronic and paper, still show the old route. Here is some guidance on the new route - When entering Anaheim Bay, keep to the right and follow the south jetty in. Outdated maps stating "red right returning” do not apply if you follow the Navy buoys. At night or in a fogbank, do not follow your incorrect GPS Plotter through Anaheim Bay. When entering the harbour make sure that the red “A” buoy remains on your right (starboard) side and the green “5C” buoy remains on your left (port) side. Follow the path indicated by the white arrow through the new harbour channel and away from the restricted naval zone. View the Huntington Harbour Entrance Reconfiguration video here:
