SoCal Latitudes and Longitudes:
Reference Only Note that these are Southern California Lat and Longs taken directly from the charts, this means unless it says "entrance" the main buoys are likely a few nautical mile off shore. We suggest that once you get there, you GPS mark and save a location closer into the harbor entrance. This information is for reference only, please confirm accuracy of these latitude & longitude numbers on your own prior to offshore riding. We recommend you purchase your own maritime navigation chart and use that chart as your primary lat/long reference.
