OK, up front, I've never been there or known anybody who has had a boat there but could Marina del Rey really be considered a calm quite area? From what I've seen in pictures and in movies, it is a huge complex with as many motorboats as sail, completely encased in shoreside developments and residences.
Looks like it could be a madhouse to me, especially on weekends and holidays.
MDR is definitely not a madhouse. There are a ton of boats for sure, and a ton of people use their boats but even the weekend warrior crowd is tame. It stays fairly tranquil. Between 6-8 am iis the best time for a morning walk or paddle.
