San Mateo County Harbor District


Welcome to the Harbor District!

Mission Statement
    To assure that the public is provided with clean, safe, well-managed, financially sound and environmentally pleasant marinas.


    The San Mateo County Harbor District was established in 1933 by a Resolution of the Board of Supervisors of the County of San Mateo. Under that certain Act of the Legislature of the State of California entitled "An Act Providing for the Formation, Government and Operation of Harbor Districts, the Calling and Conducting of Elections in such District of Harbor Commissioners, defining their powers and duties, and providing for the issuance and disposal of bonds of such Harbor District, and providing for the assessment, levy and collection of taxes for the payment of such bond and for the ordinary annual expenses of such Harbor District," approved June 10, 1931, and found in the Statutes of 1931 at page 1483.

    The County of San Mateo established the entire area of the County of San Mateo as the District's boundaries.

    The Harbor District operates two facilities, Pillar Point Harbor at Half Moon Bay in Princeton, and Oyster Point Marina/Park in the City of South San Francisco. The City owns Oyster Point, and the District runs it for the City under a Joint Powers Agreement. Pillar Point is a 369 berth working fishing harbor; Oyster Point is a 600 berth recreational boating marina.

    The District is governed by a five member Board of Harbor Commissioners, who are elected County-wide for staggered four-year terms.
