Follow us on these social media sites to receive alerts and periodic updates from the San Diego Web Cam.

Welcome to! You are watching a live picture of downtown San Diego & the bay through six webcams located at Tom Ham's Lighthouse on Harbor Island, the Bali Hai on Shelter Island and Cabrillo National Monument on the tip of Point Loma. The call letters below the harbor view are of local San Diego radio stations - click to listen live. Click "NOAA" to listen live to the national weather service radio broadcast for San Diego County. Click on any of the VHF buttons to listen to VHF marine radio.

FCC COMPLAINT UPDATE:  We have filed our rebuttal to TWC's response. Our Net Neutrality complaint with the FCC against Time Warner can be found here.  Please contact their CEO here and voice your opinion. Click to send a message below the picture. Tell them you demand peering with AS29697! In the event our complaint fails, Time Warner Cable viewers may have options to pay per minute to watch our live video streams. (This would be unfortunate because you have already paid TWC for the service.) Viewers from other ISP's (i.e. Cox, etc.) will be unaffected. It won't be 720p, but at least it is something.

SDL Screen Saver:  Want to see more of the San Diego Web Cam? Install the screen saver for all Windows PC's. The screen saver will display a new still from the live camera every six minutes. Run this installer and select the "SunDiegoLive" screen saver in the configuration box.  v2 now supports desktops with mulitple monitors by displaying a different camera on each monitor.

An image archive is available on our Facebook page.  Click the Facebook icon at the bottom of your browser window to get there.  A new twitter feed is also available.  Also, time lapse videos have been posted to our new YouTube channel.
