Docas is a former settlement in Monterey County, California.[1] It was located on the Southern Pacific Railroad 5 miles (8 km) north-northwest of San Ardo,[2] at an elevation of 404 feet (123 m).[1] It still appeared on USGS maps as of 1943.[1]

The name was coined from the last letters of San Ardo and San Lucas, between which towns Docas is located.[2]
