Crescent City?

Having grown up in Crescent City I know it to be a wonderful safe harbor. Looking over other's logs and posts I find rare mention of CC. I wonder why?

Whos knows...I've heard of New Orleans being called the cresent city. There is a Cresent City in NE Florida on then St. Johns River. Why don't you mention where this Cresent City of yours is located.

OK, I'll give another clue, besides being in the Pacific Northwest, the Crescent City I'm referring to is at the northern end of California.

New Orleans has a number of harbors and is a great stop for those cruising the Gulf Coast.

New Orleans , being the 3rd largest seaport in the world has places to dock ships...... along the Mississippi river that runs through the city . Maybe you're speaking of Bayou St. John . You can dock boats there . A harbor...I don't think so . Hmmm.....the Southern Yacht Harbor on Lake Ponchatrain ??? Does 400' of man made breakwater a harbor make ??? Hmmmmmm Lots of places to dock boats in New orleans....the intercoastal canal....maybe the Rigolets , but a harbor ?????? Anyway....turns out the subject area is on the West Coast anyway so no matter . Have a good one . I hope to be in that area next Fall after hurricane season . Planning on docking either in Bayou Liberty near Slidell or at Gohagan's out by the Rigolet's Pass

I've grown up in New Orleans and currently live across the lake and work in the city. Thanks for the lecture, though.

Orleans Marina, South Shore Harbor (under construction should open soon) and Municpal Yacht Harbor in the city. Very close to the city: Oak Harbor, Prieto Marina, Landfall Marina, Colbert Cove just to name a few. Plus, free city docks - with power and water - in Mandeville and Madisonville. There are plenty more.

I hope you enjoy the area when you visit. Maybe a few harbor tours are in order though.

I come in peace & had no intention to lecture . I evidently have a different notion of what a harbor is....no prob....I used to live in Mandeville about a hundred year ago . I'm looking forward to seeing that area again .

Most west coasters are probably in the sound north to the straight of georgia area in BC, Columbia River, or farther south on the CA coast. hence why no one mentions Crescent city, Ca. Now if this were a land yacht site, CC gets mentioned alot with folks driving up and down 101 along the coast. Wicked rip/undertow tides if you swim on the shore at different times etc. Pretty town from shore.
