Front Row Seats On The Harbor

August 24, 2012

Like most harbors, Newport Harbor is nearly always bustling; even more so during the summer months. If you're lucky enough to live on the water, you have a front row seat for the club races on summer evenings, the massive, slow-moving charter boats, and the endless parade of electric boats and stand-up paddleboarders. If you're not on the waterfront, well, I've always been a fan of web cams as a great substitute for being there - day or night. Web cams are also a great promotional tool, which is why I was a little surprised to see that Newport Beach doesn't have a harbor web cam. Balboa and Newport Harbor Yacht Clubs have web cams, and so does the Pavillion/Ferry, but there's no way to get a panoramic view, say from Hoag Hospital's amazing hilltop vantage point, or even from the Newport Blvd. Bridge. Just for fun, here are a few other yacht club and harbor web cams I did find online, both in the US and beyond. Enjoy!
