Moss Landing Harbor District is the biggest Special District of the State. It is governed by a five-member Board of Harbor Commissioners, and the port is managed by a Harbormaster. The Harbor District is committed to protect the natural environment and preserve the community's fishing heritage for generations to come. In 2007, Moss Landing Harbor was certified as a California Clean Marina, recognizing its efforts. Today, Moss Landing Harbor is the busiest commercial fishing harbor in Monterey Bay. It has over six hundred slips for commercial vessels and recreational boats.
The mission of the Moss Landing Harbor District is to offer a functional visitor-friendly harbor for recreational and commercial use. As the busiest commercial fishing harbor in Monterey Bay, Moss Landing Harbor is a year-round safe refuge for recreational boaters and a partner in marine research and education.
The Moss Landing Harbor District operates locked gated dry storage facilities that are offered for both short- and long-term storage of property. It also offers a new four-lane launch ramp and a public wharf with amenities for visitors. The Visitor Serving Dock next to Moss Landing Harbor North frequently hosts historic Tall Ships for public tours and short-term tie-up for visiting vessels. Moss Landing Harbor also offers a bilge and oil pump-out facility at the maintenance dock, open during business hours.
