San Diego

We couldn’t fit San Diego in just one shot, I’m sure you’ll agree: there’s just way too much to see!

Our live cam on the San Diego Bay moves along the 12 mile shoreline and catches all the early morning sunsets, brushstrokes of vivid red, orange and yellow outline the city skyline…the view will leave you speechless.

This panoramic tour sets off from the San Diego-Coronado Bridge and sways along the North Harbor Drive all the way to the US Coast Guard and to the San Diego International Airport, in between images of marinas, museum ships, aircraft carriers and charming sail boats; an urban environment rendered surreal by the continuous landing and departing of planes resulting in one of our most dynamic and unique shots!

Planning a trip to Southern California? Get acquainted with the bay area via our San Diego live cam.

 

Fun Facts

Do not miss out on the city’s incredible 4th of July celebrations. The famous Big Bay Boom, one of the country’s largest firework displays, is an annual event held in the bay area since 2001; the show is partially visible via our San Diego live webcam. Identical pyrotechnics are simultaneously launched by the participating barges offering an absolutely amazing spectacle!

Curious enough, in 2012 a computer glitch hastily set off the 7,000 fireworks prepared for the evening, instead of the intended 17-minute show, the audience witnessed an unexpected and, for some, even frightening 1-minute discharge.

    The last time I viewed this camera it panned around, you could view the planes landing! Does any viewers know what the problem is? Also j.funny and w.pam I also view the kenya camera!

    16:22 July 17 - Planes taking off, landing, taxiing, and the yellow DHL plane is sitting on the tarmac. All kinds of vehicle traffic on the street and freeway also keeps things interesting on this Skyline cam.

    19:00 July 15 - Hi W. Pam - Oh oh, the camera got bumped or slipped again, and only have a view of the restaurant deck floor. Thanks for the St. Lawrence Seaway info. Speaking of hot San Diego, yes it's hot there, but you get just outside the city and it's hot desert type terrain in my opinion. I would stay in town, or on Coronado Island and walk on the beach. Next door to SD is LaJolla....nice.

    J. Funny, in answer to your question about how the tall ships and freighters get into Lake Michigan,
    it's called the St. Lawrence Seaway. When I was in grade school in the 1950's I remember winning a speech contest that I wrote about the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway. In 1961 my folks and I took a trip to see Niagra Falls and were stopped for hours, unable to cross the Sioux St. Marie bridge
    because Queen Elizabeth's Royal Yacht was passing underneath.
    Milwaukee and Chicago (Calumet Harbor) are major international ports.
    More planes landing and taking off today? I'll bet it's hot there. It's hot HERE! 93 F.

    12:11 July 15 - The camera is not panning right now. There's a full view of a yellow DHL (for shipping) plane on the tarmac. Great view. Keep the planes and boats coming!

    21:56 July 14 - Hi again W. Pam, The baby appears to be delivered last time I checked. Have you ever tasted Spam? If not, check it out....hmmm. Maybe you'll find some(?) Lots of planes departing and arriving tonight. Might look scary looking laterally from the camera's view, but there's a lot more open area that you don't see. Vroom vroom!!

    14:17 July 14 - Hi W. Pam, 1) that last note of mine should have been written 13:40 since Skyline uses the 24-hour clock. I always time them local time. 2) Hey, your missing note showed up many hours later than you wrote it. I finally figured stuff out without it, but glad I now see your note. Very strange things happen with comments on various Skyline cams. I think they need some more good IT people to straighten things out. 3) I'll check out Ben's video. 4) Tall Ship Festival: I know ships would go through the Panama Canal or around South America, but my questions is, how do they get into Lake Michigan? There must be deep waterway connection to the Atlantic Ocean???

    1:40 July 14 - Hi W. Pam, The air looks smoggy here today, or is it smoke? Hopefully, there's no wildfire. This is a great cam. I think I figured it out and proceeded, and it hasn't failed(?) Oh boy, there goes a plane taxiing. I wonder where it's headed.

    J, Funny, many of the tall ships travel all over the world. They do training and research. Panama Canal?
    It's winter in the southern hemisphere so I don't think they would go around the bottom of South America.
    I've been trying to give you my email address
    I'll bet tomorrow morning the airport here in San Diego will be busy with business travelers. More jets to watch.

    22:55 July 13 - The Tall Ship Festival in Kenosha that you spoke of on this cam sounds very interesting. How would they get one of those ships from the west coast to Kenosha? Or is that comment a joke?....Hmmm.

    J. Funny. Really? The guy selling the catamaran in Kans'lle could b right down the road from us!
    It was really hot here today. Mid 90's F. Went out to get the mail out of the box and it was really hotmail!
    I haven't seen many planes today. Note the tall ship in the harbour? Kenosha is preparing for the tall ships
    festival in a month. Wondering if the one here could be coming?

    Hi J.Funny. He's my husband's brother. I'm an only child. Ever since his mom died, his siblings don't talk to one another. One of those who got what scenarios. J, you have to put it together! What does the United States Postal Service do? They send...... And when it's 90 degrees F. it's hot.
    Now put the 1st part together then my last hint.
    I love watching this webcam too. All those folks with their yachts. Must be nice on the water.
    I give you a lot of credit for being able to fly a plane.
    Getting close with Burl, Kans' how about Brighton? Left a comment on Ben's video.
    It's dark here but still light here in San Diego. Looks like a beautiful city..

    18:30 July13 - W. Pam, I found a catamaran for sale in 'Kan'ville' for $53, 139. Oh, and a cheaper small one 'at' $2,222 (I wonder if that's an estimate?).

    17:24 July 13 - W. Pam, I was wondering if Minnetonka McKee can buy catamarans in 'Burl.', or maybe 'Dov' or 'Kan'ville'. There's a beautiful one in the water right now.
