From the Entrance of the Potrero Reach:

Follow the Potrero Reach East leaving Richmond Yacht Club and a large ship drydock to port. As you proceed, the waterway splits -keep to port, instead of going straight. You are now in the Harbor Channel. Keep to port and it becomes the Santa Fe Channel. Svendsen's Bay Marine is located just past the covered berths & fuel dock at Channel Marina.
