Some members have noticed that the Harbor Island West Marina pump out facility now closes at 4pm during the winter and 5pm in the summer. This was put into place by marina staff in order to prevent commercial pump out services from emptying their tanks using the public dock. Unfortunately, this has a small effect on members’ convenience when pumping out but San Diego has several other options listed below.
Most HS boats (not all) are equipped with macerator pumps that will allow you to empty the tank directly overboard only when you’re more than three miles offshore. Please check with the dockmaster before using this feature to refresh on the procedure.
