Check-In Location

Check-in is located at 2050 Shelter Island Drive. You will notice that there is no building at this address as we check-in in a grassy area adjacent to the parking lot.  Once you are on Shelter Island Drive you will reach a roundabout intersection, turn right (southwest) and continue on Shelter Island Drive. As soon as you pass Silver Gate Yacht Club, look LEFT for the bright blue flag that says “Check-In” flag on the grass. The flag will be placed directly across the street from the crosswalk that leads to the Island Palms Hotel. Please park anywhere in this fabulous FREE all-day parking lot that is adjacent to the check-in location.  If you are using public transportation, Lyft, or Uber, please check-in at this location as well.

2050 Shelter Island Dr, San Diego, CA 92106


FREE All-Day Parking is located in the parking lots surrounding 2050 Shelter Island Drive. There is free parking on the street as well.


Restroom facilities are available on Yacht America during the trip. If you need to use the restroom prior to check-in, there is a public restroom facility next to the Shelter Island Boat Launch Ramp at 2210 Shelter Island Drive.


We recommend dressing warmly and in layers as the air is always cooler on the water and conditions can change hour to hour. You can always shed layers as necessary. Hats, scarves, gloves, and jackets are all good ideas even in the summer. Comfortable shoes and windbreakers are a good idea. High stiletto heels are not recommended as they ruin the deck. If you would like to wear high heels, we recommend wedges or something similar.
