Eureka - A Victorian Seaport on Humboldt Bay
Eureka on Humboldt Bay is located in the heart of California's Redwood Coast, home to the tallest trees in the world. Within one hour of town, a dozen state and national parks await your passengers with an unforgettable experience. Imagine walking between aisles of huge, ancient redwoods -- trees that were already old when America was discovered !
Eureka is located an easy overnight cruise north of San Francisco or south of Astoria, Oregon. Consistently named as one of the top three "Best Small Arts Towns in America", Eureka has also received the coveted "Prettiest Painted Places" title, and is one of only two official Coast Guard Cities in the entire nation.
As you cruise into Humboldt Bay (the largest natural bay between San Francisco and Puget Sound), historic Eureka will welcome you with the grace of a bygone era. Step back in time as you stroll the perfectly preserved streets of Old Town, where you'll find truly unique shopping, arts galore and fantastic local cuisine.
