The new channel separates Naval vessel traffic from civilian boats coming and going from Huntington Harbour.
SEAL BEACH—Boaters navigating between the ocean and Huntington Harbour have a new route to follow, which will separate them from Naval vessel traffic and provide a more direct route. The Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach opened a new small craft channel in Anaheim Bay on Jan. 21. The new channel separates Navy traffic from civilian boat traffic. The old channel previously shared by the two is now closed to the public but work on armoring the sides of the new channel will continue for several more months.
