Dana Point Boater Association:

While the Association focuses on many issues presented to recreational boaters in Dana Point Harbor, one of the more significant efforts will be what the County of Orange refers to as the "Dana Point Harbor Revitalization Plan". The Association’s membership are boaters & non-boaters who are interested in and committed to helping promote, develop, and implement the best Dana Point Harbor Revitalization Plan. This is accomplished by working with ALL Stakeholders i.e. Boaters, OC Dana Point Harbor, County of Orange, Harbor Merchant's, City of Dana Point, Department of Boating and Waterways, South Coast Water District, California Coastal Commission and other County and Government Agencies. It is our mission (DPBA) to involve all boaters and make sure our needs, wants, and ideas are heard and acted on. Together we can have a positive impact going forward for the next 50 years.
