Following a ceremonial ribbon cutting, the Balboa Marina Public Pier was officially opened for public use. The new pier can accommodate up to 12 small vessels or several larger vessels.

It is free for day use by the public for up to three hours.

The pier greatly expands public access and recreational opportunities in a previously underserved area of the harbor. The project is a partnership between the city, county and Irvine Company.
