San Pedro Boat Rides

Located on the southern end of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, San Pedro is one of the most historic and picturesque regions in Los Angeles.

The first official documentation of the San Pedro harbor was by the Portuguese explorer Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo in 1542. From the moment the spanish settled the harbor it has been a major location to facilitate international trade.

The California congress declared the San Pedro Bay as the official port for Los Angeles in 1897 and it continues to be a major international seaport. That serves as a must see for maritime enthusiasts and seafood lovers.
