Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa
3999 Mission Blvd, San Diego, CA 92109

We are excited to host our meeting in beautiful San Diego at the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa, a tropical hideaway in San Diego's Pacific Beach community on the sparkling shores of Mission Bay. Located just 8 miles from the San Diego International Airport, this Polynesian-themed resort offers casual elegance with palm trees, lush vegetation, tiki torches, koi ponds, waterfalls, and exotic birds. Click below for the room block information. To enjoy the full conference experience, we suggest arriving by 4:00 pm on Monday and departing after 2:00 pm on Thursday (unless you plan to stay for additional side meetings and the California Marine Affairs and Navigation Conference!). Additionally, if you'd like to arrive early or stay late, the Resort has graciously offered to extend the group rate a few days before and after the meeting and celebration so you can enjoy more of what San Diego has to offer!
