Boaters will find moorings (but no slips) in Avalon, Two Harbors, and various coves around the Island. Download a brochure from the Avalon Harbor Department. Please note the following regulations:
Avalon Harbor Mooring Information
All moorings are on a first-come, first-served basis. Upon arrival, please stand by the harbor entrance for a mooring assignment from the harbor patrol boat. No moorings are assigned over VHF radio.
Avalon is a NO DISCHARGE area. No sewage may be discharged – treated or not. This is strictly enforced. A free Pump-A-Head station is located near the fuel dock, by the Casino building. There is a pump-out station located at the main dock in Two Harbors, and a pump-out boat in Catalina Harbor.
Service boats make trash pick-ups free of charge daily during the summer months, and in Avalon on weekends in winter months. Recycling is mandatory. Trash must be separated by glass, aluminum and plastic from other trash.
To ensure a peaceful coexistence, all generators must be secured from 10 pm to 7 am.
The anchoring area for Avalon is located outside the breakwater, west of the Casino building, at least 300 feet from moorings and the dive park. Plan on a depth of 150 feet. At all other locations, you may anchor outside mooring areas only. These are not patrolled and you anchor at your own risk.
Dinghy Docks docks are provided throughout the harbor for dinghies 14’ and under. We recommend dinghy locks.
Shoreboat/water-taxi service monitors VHF channel 9. Charged per person, each way
