Two Harbors Mooring and Camping Sites

Two Harbors Mooring Sites

Considered a cruiser’s paradise, Two Harbors is situated at the Isthmus of Catalina Island. The crystal clear waters and unspoiled vistas will enchant you, and the friendly locals will do their best to help you make the most of your stay. The village of Two Harbors and the secluded coves nearby each have mooring and anchorage options to make discovering all that Catalina has to offer an easy experience.

When you arrive, contact the Harbor Department via VHF Channel 09 to find your assignment and pay your fees. If you cannot reach the Harbor Department, take the closest mooring and pay your fees the next morning. Please note: Use caution when approaching Isthmus Cove, as the reef, denoted by a sign and lights, is located on the landside of Bird Rock.

Catalina Harbor

Catalina Harbor is Santa Catalina Island’s most protected harbor, as well as one of two U.S. Coast Guard-designated “Year-round Safe Harbor” in Southern California. It has 96 moorings and anchorage for more than 200. Ballast Point, a natural sand spit, extends across a portion of the Harbor entrance.

There is a public dinghy dock, on-shore picnic facilities, and we offer free pump-out services for Cat Harbor boaters. Contact the Harbor Patrol on VHF Channel 09. From the dock, it’s a half-mile walk on flat terrain to the village of Two Harbors. A shuttle is available on summer weekends.
