Thanks, we made the trip in August without any problems. We left from SD bay and stopped in Oceanside. (Good advice about cash, they don't take credit. We actually stopped in on the way down to SD and paid before we started our sail.)The next night we moored in Newport. We motored all the way, saw some whales, and got to King Harbor by the third night.
We had no trouble through Camp Pendleton, although it is wise to just check.
