Outdoor Recreation - Fishing & Sports
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.
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.
Find your next catch in the Marina. Licensed fishing is permitted at the north and south jetties, as well as Venice Pier, which doesn’t require a license. Licenses and bait are easy to buy at West Marine and/or Marina del Rey Sportfishing, but be sure to bring your own fishing gear.
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.
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.
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.
