Any top tips?


A light jacket is always suggested to bring due to the weather being a bit cooler on the water. Sunglasses & sunscreen are also a plus. If you get motion sick, Bonine is the medication we recommend.

Where is it at?


Davey’s Locker is located off the 55 South Freeway- this freeway turns into Newport Blvd- continue down this road until Newport Blvd turns into Balboa Blvd. Turn right onto Palm St and park in the Balboa Pier Municipal parking lot. Walk to Main St- then turn east (towards the Harbor) and we are located in the Historic Balboa Pavilion 400 Main Street.
