Potters at Pete's Harbor, Redwood City

Restaurants include the Harbor House and the Diving Pelican.

You can sail out Redwood Creek to the Bay or just potter about in the harbor and creek. There are also some sloughs around Bair Island that could be explored if the water is deep enough. The remains of the destroyer Thompson may be seen in the shallows outside the mouth of Redwood Creek. The old ship was used as a practice bombing target during WWII.
