boat living question for someone green

im pretty new to sailing and am thinking of living aboard a 29 foot sailboat.

i do have some questions that i dont have answered yet, and they are the following:

i've never been in a marina and have no idea how they operate really..i know about slips however, lets say im cruising down to Los Angeles Ca and i need to pick up a friend to take them on a ride out to catalina island...where would i park my boat without a slip? is there like a loading zone where boats can load and unload for free? if not, are there any decent places in the los angeles area where i can anchor off and just ride a dhingy? also, for showers, lets say i just want a shower...is there a place to park for like a 30 minute shower? the reason i ask these questions is because i want to have someone living aboard who works in the city...the problems with this are the showers and drop off and pickup. if i can solve the drop off and pickup and shower problem, then im pretty sure i can live the sailing life.
