There are no specific operating hours for the harbor itself, but a 10:00 p.m. curfew law is enforced at all beaches.
There are five marinas within the Sunset Harbour area, and a total of approximately 3,000 boats along with over 1,500 residences on the water. The Orange County Sheriff's Harbor Patrol is also responsible for patrolling the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station and offshore areas to 3 miles out. Altogether, the patrol area covers about 1,745 acres of water and 6 miles of shoreline inside the harbor.
There is a vast natural area that lies between the Naval Weapons Station and Sunset Harbour known as the Anaheim Bay National Wildlife Refuge. This is home to numerous types of marine life and birds that thrive in the natural habitat that has existed for years. The area is said to be one of the most important and beautiful natural wildlife areas along the Pacific Coast.
Private lessees operate marinas in the harbor. Please contact them for information regarding slips and marinas.
