Catalina Island, California USA

This page is for your general information and in no case be used for navigational purposes. Use your chart!  Avalon Chart #18757
Identifying Landmarks: Radio Beacon on Blackjack Peak between town and Long Point, Carillon (white tower on western hill above town .2 mile sw of Casino Point), the town buildings and lights at night, the rock quarry 1 1/2 miles east of the harbor, the Casino on Casino Point at land's end of breakwater, the Hamilton Cove complex west of harbor by about one half a mile and the Wrigley Mansion on eastern hill above town, as well as both the Southeast and Southwest breakwaters.

Avalon has blossomed on the north shore of Santa Catalina, 2 1/2 miles from the southeast end of the island and the harbor entrance is between the Casino Point (FL Red 4 seconds) breakwater on the North and the breakwater from Cabrillo Peninsula (FL White 2.5 seconds) and the transportation dock on the South.  Both breakwaters are marked by lights on the seaward ends. A pier divides the harbor and houses the Harbor Patrol and various small businesses. 

Harbor depths are between 2 fathoms along the seawall on the first row of moorings to 13 fathoms at the transportation wharf, dropping to 20 fathoms directly off the ocean side of the breakwaters.

The area from Abalone Point to Pebbly Beach Amphibian Air Terminal Ramp is restricted for obvious reasons. Don't anchor or dive within 200 feet of shore in this area.
