Catalina Is. is west/east on the charts
. Go around the east end, it seems longer but easier seas usually. Best done in the early part of the day. The Island pinches off to a 1 mile flat dirt road connecting Cat Harbor to the Isthmas amentities, bar, store, restaurant and ferry
travel from the mainland. It's a nice walk in from there also showers and washing
machines and camp spots. Dingy dock
available at the Cat side landing, plus a bbq spot for bigger land based parties. Do not pet the buffalo! If your dog likes to wander off leash there are tons of cactus spines to watch out for. Great anchorage. Mostly mooring
balls to rent now. Usually a quiet anchorage.
