San Vicente Creek is about 9 miles long in Santa Cruz County.
It drains an area of over 14 square miles. It starts near Empire Grade at 2,460 feet and drains into the Pacific Ocean at Davenport Beach. On some maps, this is listed as San Vicente Beach.
The San Vicente Creek borders the town of Davenport. The town used San Vicente as one of the names of the settlement. Both the railroad and Highway One travel over San Vicente Creek. A tunnel was blasted and cut from the rocks to all the continued flow of the creek to the sea. The creek was once part of the Rancheo and may have been named for it.
Since 2011, the area above Davenport is named San Vicente Redwoods, for the main creek that flows through it. In Davenport, San Vicente Street goes into the San Vicente Redwoods.
