Outdoor Recreation - Fishing & Sports

Bike Rentals

Ride along the Marvin Braude Coastal Bike Trail with the Marina’s unbeatable backdrop, or pack a picnic and head south to Playa del Rey or north to Venice and Santa Monica. Bike rentals are available at Daniel's Bicycle Rentals & Sales.  Hotels like Jamaica Bay Inn and The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey also offer rentals to their guests.

Sportfishing

Marina del Rey Sport Fishing

Take the bait and head off for some of the Marina’s fantastic sportfishing. On a morning, afternoon or twilight excursion out at sea, catch halibut, yellowtail, sea bass and more. Knowledgeable guides are on hand for the less experienced.

Pier Fishing

Find your next catch in the Marina. Licensed fishing is permitted at the north and south jetties, as well as Venice Pier and Burton Chace Park–which don’t require licenses. Licenses and bait are easy to buy, but be sure to bring your own fishing gear.

Tennis

The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey

Enjoy a game of tennis with incredible views of the marina and boats as your backdrop. Court rentals are available for guests and non guests of the hotel. Contact the Concierge Desk.

Hang Gliding

Windsports Soaring Center

Spend an afternoon soaring over Dockweiler State Beach, just south of Playa del Rey and minutes from the Marina. After a short orientation by pros, strap into a modern hang glider and soar away, with as many as ten flights in your first lesson.

Golf

Westchester Golf Course

Practice your swing at nearby Westchester’s 18-hole public golf course and driving range, or the surprisingly challenging 33-par Penmar 9-hole course not far from Venice Beach. Both are open daily year-round, and offer inexpensive green and cart fees.
