On September 28, 1542, Juan Rodriquez Cabríllo and his crew sailed into this harbor and became first Europeans to set foot on what would later become the west coast of the United States. The exact landing area is not known, but many believe that Cabríllo came ashore on Ballast Point, the small finger of land below you.
