Like Agana Boat Basin "Rights" the spot is accessed by parking car in lot on right side of harbor. Harbor can be seen from main highway. Walk out on jetty, step off jetty and paddle across channel. It is a pretty short paddle across. Wait for fishing and sail boats to pass first off course. After crossing keep on the right side of wave to avoid getting caught inside on the larger days.

This is probably one of the best and most visible spots on Guam. The left at the harbor entrance is the main surf spot, although there is a ledgy right on the other side of the harbor that is ridden mostly by bodyboarders. The left is reminiscent of Ala Moana, although shorter and not quite as hollow, and is one of the few spots on the island that can hold size. Consequently it is popular with the locals, who tend to commandeer the small takeoff zone when conditions are good. Respect is essential for outsiders. The harbor has been known to be polluted so watch out after rain and if you have open cuts.
After parking you have to walk out on jetty and pass "da boys". If it is too big to surf Agana Boat Basin Rights, that means the Lefts are just starting baby. I always waited for the set waves. The first waves I let the locals have-em. Park your car by the outdoor food courts or by the baseball field.
Guam is pretty mellow. Locals are pretty cool at the Boat Basin. Little more local at private spots. This place is located in down town Agana. Easy to see off street. Two good breaks at spot. Either the Rights when it is below 7 foot. Or surf the lefts when the swell is 4-5 foot plus.
The Boat Basin is one of my all time favorite spots. When I first moved to Guam when I was stationed there in the Coast Guard in the mid Eighties. I saw the Boat Basin Lefts on a 6-8 foot and CHARGING SWELL. It was also magnificent. Perfect shape. Although the Left is not as consistant as the Right, the right breaks alot more and is good from 1 freakin foot on up to 7. Always hallow. You just have to kick out of everyride or wind up on the coral and rocks by the jetty. I love Agana!
