About the San Mateo County Harbor District:
The San Mateo County Harbor District was first established in 1933 and now operates both Pillar Point Harbor and Oyster Point Marina and Park. Pillar Point remains a major commercial and sport fishing harbor, with 369 berths and is host to many public events throughout the year.
The District began operating Oyster Point Marina/Park in 1977. It then completed construction of docks, a new breakwater, and onshore facilities during the 1980’s. Now with ferry service to other points on San Francisco Bay, Oyster Point Marina/Park provides a 455-berth marina and boat launch ramp, a fishing pier, a 33 acre park with hiking and jogging trails, picnic facilities and a 2.5 acre sandy beach.
The District is governed by a five member Board of Harbor Commissioners, who are elected County-wide for staggered four-year terms.
