There is a different one there every day. Cannot dock within the Marina itself since its way to big to fit in there.
I had a couple of hours before my sportfishing charter was to depart the marina, so decided to do the hike above Lands End to see what kind of views it offered. The hike up was worth it. I did however hike in my Keen sandals, and they were not quite the right footwear for the job but managed to get the hike in without any disasters. There are parts of the hike that are steep with rock and cactus, so falling down could prove painful.

In think the round trip took me about 80 minutes. I did take my time on the way up and the way back. The path up is steep at the end, which means pretty tricky coming back down.

Note the distinct change in color from the shore (e.g. teal) as you move away from the shore into that dark blue. Supposedly the water depth reaches 5000' not too far from shore in places in the Lands End area.
