Kings Harbor Hand Launch

Heard that they are closing it down for repair. Anyone have insider information as to how long it will be down?

Closing until next March. Website says to use temp dock by boat hoist. No idea if you have to pay but boat hoist is only open until 5pm or so. Not sure if you can launch before them closing for the day but use it on the way back.

Supposed to close on Monday. The dock by the boat hoist is tricky to get down to with a kayak. PAs have to be carried all the way down the ramp, after negotiating the gate at the top.

Are you sure itís Monday? Was recently told they would close it this Saturday. If itís Monday I guess I will need to haul my PA down there for one last trip this Sunday before they close it off.

Thatís sucks! I have an outback but my friend has PA14...I was hoping to get access somehow but it maybe too difficult to get out after it closes.

Was out this morning, and they have started setting up the construction site, even saw they cutting up some boards, but you should be okay for Sunday.

Talking

So now the handlaunch is closed and I took a look at boat hoist area and itís really narrow and steep. Anyone have secret spot to launch from king harbor/redondo beach area youíd like to share?

That's normal for this time of year.

The launch by the boat hoist is a good alternative. If you have an outback or smaller type kayak you can carry it down yourself. However, if you have a PA bring mom, dad and the kids so they can help you carry down and back up when you're done for the day.

Launch

So Sad......but that dock was in need of some TLC...the screw heads were starting to show and they were getting their share of plastic...
That’s a tough turn for a Pro Angler or any of the other big boats...
And with this king tide it’s a steep hill at low tide
$18 to get hoisted in...and out... + $4 parking...

I donít mind paying for the hoist but the times are limited to their business hours. Guess no more night time hooping and bass fishing for a while...

Hoist, or bring a friend to help you carry it to the alternate dock. Or bring a long roll of artificial turf to lay across the rocks at the normal launch area.
