San Diego Navy Fleet & Family Readiness Programs

San Diego is the homeport to the Navy's Pacific Fleet. Recreational opportunities abound at one of the world's largest concentrations of military personnel and services. Installations in San Diego include Naval Base San Diego (NBSD), homeport to over 50 ships; Naval Amphibious Base Coronado (NAB) where the elite Navy SEALs train; Naval Air Station North Island (NASNI), the birthplace of naval aviation; Naval Base Point Loma (NBPL) and Naval Base Point Loma, Harbor Drive Annex, overlooking San Diego's finest bay views; and Naval Medical Center San Diego, the most technologically advanced US Navy medical treatment facility.
