shops and entertainment.
• Sail down to nearby Alamitos Bay

Gateway to Catalina Island
Just a four-hour
sail from our Long Beach Club lies an Island
far removed from the rest of the world. People
come to this Island paradise to escape the
monotony of every day life. The opportunities
for escape are endless--golfing, deep sea
fishing, diving, shopping, dining, dancing,
sightseeing, ocean rafting, sunbathing, relaxing,
biking, camping, swimming, hiking, kayaking,
glass bottom boating, snorkeling, parasailing,
and nature walking. Just to name a few. Whether
you go for a weekend or a week-long vacation,
the sailor’s life on Catalina Island
is as rich and full of adventure as its history.
Don’t like crowds? You can anchor out
in more than 24 sheltered anchorages found
along the 30 mile-long coastline. The village
of Two Harbors and the secluded coves nearby
each have mooring and anchorage options to
make discovering these areas a fun and easy
experience. Membership with the Harbor Yacht
Clubs makes your Island hopping dream a fun
and affordable reality.
