Fiddler's Cove is a beautiful Marina, and boat slips are actually reasonably inexpensive (boats, on the other hand, are not). The rentals for kayaks and paddleboards are really fun and convenient, and the Marina is relatively unknown so it doesn't get too crowded. A gem!

This is one of the best deals in the Navy! Fiddler's Cove Marina is just south of the amphib base on Coronado and allows patrons to check out sailboats, paddle boards, kayaks, and more. It also offers slips for those who own boats. Highly recommend visiting this marina and taking advantage of all that it offers.
