The Port of San Diego’s Harbor Police Department invites the public to attend an upcoming outreach session to provide input on the issue of illegal vessel charters operating in San Diego Bay, in order to assist the Port’s efforts to improve regulation of these businesses. The outreach session will take place from 10 to 11 a.m. on Monday, June 4 in the Port Administration Building, 3165 Pacific Highway.

Currently, there are both legal and illegal vessel charters operating in San Diego Bay. The goal of better regulation is to protect consumers, safeguard public safety, and create a more even playing field for businesses. Vessel charters include whale-watching boats, party boats and sportfishing boats, to name a few examples.

“We are interested in hearing from members of the public, including waterfront visitors and the business community, on issues they have encountered with illegal vessel charters and other water sports businesses in San Diego Bay,” said Harbor Police Chief Mark Stainbrook.  “Everyone is welcome to attend this outreach session to provide input on how the Port of San Diego may update and amend the code to better address vessel charter operations and ensure an even playing field.”
