Coronado Island - Voted "Best Seafood"

We are located over the water in the historic former Hotel Del Coronado boathouse, built in 1887, on Coronado Island which was converted from the former Chart House and "1887" restaurant.  Bluewater Boathouse is a contemporary showplace for hyper-local, pristine quality seafood, sustainably caught, and offers upscale casual "coastal" dining!  Come in, get hooked!

Arriving via boat? Dock at the Seaforth boat rental dock next door. Dinghy landing $5/day, and short term docking available. Pickups and dropoffs $10. For more info, please call 619 437 1590.

Well behaved dogs are welcome on  our patio.
