Just off the phone with the fuel dock. Harbor patrol came by and told them that the bay and waterways will be shutting down. They did not have a day or time but with Glorietta Bay ramp closing down this morning that is it for SD launching.

I received this email yesterday as well.

Forward this to everyone you know with a boat...


I received word that the port authority is planning to close the San Diego Bay to all recreational boaters. If you are like I am, and feel you can safely social distance with your family on the bay, and that this restriction would not do anything to reduce the risk of COVID 19 spread... please contact the Port Authority at the below e-mail to let them know. Stay healthy and stay safe. [email protected]

Its one thing to eliminate recreational activities in the bay and another to close the bay down completely. I would still expect to be able to take a non-commercial boat in and out of the bay.

People with fishing boats, you should take your boat out before they shut down the bay and stay out there fishing. Who knows, you may be only one survived this outbreak.
and don't forget to pack your bait tank with toilet paper.

Stupid. The bay is super slow due to all of this. Very few boats out. What's the point... oh wait to further kill the economy.

Meanwhile the county can't even control people congregating in public spaces.

JUST STAY HOME !!! The reason this shit is getting shut down, is because you selfish entitled son of a bitches, that just run out to the beach and docks, when there is a
STAY AT HOME ORDER, Yet, the same people express so much concern about the long range fleet and all the services hurting. This is not a double edge sword, If everyone is going to get back to the normal selfish lives we're used to....JUST STAY THE FUCK HOME

So is the bay closed to transit or just recreational activity within the bay?

This is from the Port Covid-19 page:

"If I have a boat on the water, (at a mooring, marina, etc.) can I go out on it, fish, sail, etc?
Consistent with state orders regarding recreation, it’s allowed so long as you can maintain a safe social distance of six feet from people who aren’t part of your household. Per the state stay-at-home order, non-essential gatherings of any size are not allowed. Everyone has the responsibility to “Flatten the COVID-19 Curve” by maintaining a social distance of 6 feet or more when recreating in the outdoors, and staying home if they are sick. If you cannot maintain social distancing, you need to go elsewhere or return home.

I went and checked on my Boat this morning at Seaworld Marina and no one there except for one guy talking to the Marina dock master, crying and moaning he can't take his boat out... I tried to say something to him and he started raising his voice and cursing, I looked at him told to have a nice day and left to go to my boat to check things...took a quick check and back home to my safe haven.. There was not anyone on the water in Mission Bay. other than that guy bitching ,there was no one on the docks.
did my checks and came home...
